“The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.” ~Robert Frost Second consecutive day of running. Small success. Trail running in fall is awesome. The goal for the next 28 days is to run every single day … Continue reading Running
“I believe I can I know I can, I’m sure I can” Dead Prez – I believe Yes. I believe I can kick my running procrastination habit! Fighting running procrastination this week. I am never going to finish that 50 miles race if I don’t start training. Today is going to be a 20 km … Continue reading Running
Mal: “We’re not gonna die. We can’t die, Bendis. You know why? Because we are so…very…pretty We are just too pretty for God to let us die.” Creemore Vertical is going to be my first race of the summer. And zero preparation! 25 km at the pace of a snail is going to be … Continue reading Creemore Vertical
HTFU! Words to live by. Not running is killing me! Beth’s got it right. I call that punching above your weight class! I am always the last to cross the finish line in my long distance races. Continue reading HTFU!
It is on! I can’t believe I signed up for the race. Only 25 km this time around and I hope I finish it since my training has been abysmal this past months. The last Creemore Vertical was painful! I am looking forward to soaking in the river at the finish line. Continue reading Creemove Vertical 2011

My holidays include heading to YellowKnife in the middle of winter and enjoying the frigid temperatures – except that with all this global warming finding cold places to visit is getting difficult. But what I don’t enjoy about the … Continue reading My daily commute or how I plan to average 70 kilometers a week.
I have been looking at trail races happening across Ontario and there isn’t much in the winter time – unless you want to use snowshoes! So I added my first California trail race for 2011: The Chabot Trail Run. I will stick to a 30 km race that weekend. Now it is just a matter … Continue reading 2011 Race schedule update
Apparently you need to train to get to the finish line of a 50 mile race! Oh who would have known? Not met obviously as my training last week was beyond pathetic. Hitting the re-start button: I am just going to pretend that this week is the first training week. So how am I doing? … Continue reading Getting to the finish line
I have been dreaming of a 50 mile race for years now and I think it is high time that I just got out there and completed a 50 mile race. What do you say? In 2010, I completed a combination of 50 KM and 25 KM races. I had a lot of fun. I … Continue reading 2011: the running year! or my 1st 50 mile race?
I am too stupid to learn the first time around: I am back for another Iroquoia race on August 21. A 32 km race. This race is known as the ITT and when I think about ITT I remember that was the race where I learned what a technical trail race was! When I hear … Continue reading Iroquoia Trail 2010
