If you’ve been reading along over the past week or so, you’re probably not going to find the topic of today’s post all that shocking. It’s time to set some goals for the new year; specifically some fitness goals1. First and foremost I have to get back to my regular running self. I miss running. […]Read more "New Year New Goals"
A few weeks ago I was supposed to run my very first 50km Ultra Marathon. I trained, I trained, and I trained some more. I made sure to stretch, and I tried to do all this while balancing a bunch of other projects. I found the hours I spent in the office and in meetings […]Read more "Apparently I Am Not Superman"
So tomorrow is the big race – the Toronto Goodlife Marathon. Some of you may recall that I was planning on running 42.2 km of marathon-y goodness tomorrow.

There was also talk of running the Chocolate Race in Port Dalhousie, and the Yonge Street 10km. I finished the […]Read more "What’s Another 7.8km?"
And so it begins. Today I registered for my first 2 races of the 2013 running season. Actually, I guess the Donald Duck half marathon and the Mickey Mouse full marathon are part of the 2013 race season, but I’m not counting them exactly. The first race – at least according to my current race […]Read more "Let The Race Season Begin"
