So it’s 2015. Every year I like to take some time to look back on the various lists that I had developed to review the various goals I had set; a way to measure where I’ve been and how far I’ve come. This year I’ve also opted to look back on some of the unexpected adventures […]Read more "Because 2014 Is So Last Year"
On Tuesday eve I was able to cross off another item from my Not So Bucket List. To be honest, I never actually expected to cross this item off of my list since, in some way, it was completely out of my control.

If you’ll recall, I ran this particular course last year in 2:53:12, despite fuelling myself with nothing more than a granola bar and a cup of coffee1. This year, based on the lessons […]Read more "It’s Time"
