What to wear!

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

It’s a funny feeling getting dressed to go out but not to a wedding – it seems like those are the only things I go to lately. I find getting dressed for a house party way more stressful than getting ready for a black tie wedding. Time for a shopping trip perhaps?

Space Case

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Today I am a space case. I brought 2 small lululemon bags to work: one contains a gift card for a friend, the other my lunch. I just went to get food from the fridge. Guess which bag was waiting for me? At least the gift card is nice and cool. I blame it on […]

A Techie’s Lament

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

In case you didn’t know, I’m a techie. I work in computers, and so am expected to have all sorts of gadgets. But since I like to spend my moolah on other things, like black knee high boots (of which I have at least 4 different variations) and running shoes/clothes, I don’t always have new […]

So today was the last day of bootcamp. We did the same workout that we did three weeks ago (the one I blogged about below). My time then: 9:44 My time today: 7:00 How’s that for an improvement, eh? I no longer felt the need to lie down and die during burpees!! Anyway, I’m hooked. […]

Change of Pace

Friday, September 11th, 2009

All summer I’ve been slacking on my workouts. Some of that is because of work (60+ hour weeks doesn’t leave a lot of time for the gym!). Some is because I need a change from my routine which is why even though I’m back to a [more or less] normal work schedule I’m finding it […]

NYC Half Marathon 2009 – Race report!

Monday, August 17th, 2009

No internet (okay, there’s internet, it’s just not free) and some free time before my flight boards means that Jenn is going to try her hand at another race report. After all, I’m sitting here in my medal so it seems like a good time to reflect and pretend that folks aren’t staring strangely at […]

Change of Pace

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Last summer, I avoided leaving the city when there were long runs in my schedule since the idea of running in a new area scared me. This time I embraced it and headed up to the Muskokas for some cottaging. I had a 15km down for Saturday morning, and was thrilled that I was going […]

A video of the flash mob.

Friday, June 19th, 2009

I was my own flash mob on the 4th ring. Also, think twice before you search for “White hot” on YouTube. Especially at work. Edit: I can’t get the video to embed correctly, so here’s the link

…I would love to! At the [White Hot] Ballet

Friday, June 19th, 2009

A few months ago, my friend Elaine sent an email out with an invite she had received to the White Hot Gala for the National Ballet. As young folks in the city, we were offered tickets for about $30 to the event. We were also told that there would be the opportunity to do our […]
