Gimme Gimme

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

My two fave running blogs are both running giveaways right now. Eventually I will win something from one of them, but I need all the entries I can get: How much fun are these Headbands marlene is giving away? I want Zensah everything! Well, more specifically I want a running skirt 🙂 Maybe I’ll win […]

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 […]

And in the same breath

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

When I looked up the link to the Toronto Women’s 5km to add to the previous post I saw that the 2010 Toronto Women’s Half which is on May 30 2010 is already open for registration. And even with my current aversion to running I am mighty tempted to sign up. I can always transfer […]

Sore Loser

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

I read some running blogs (see my sidebar) and folks frequently seem to host giveaways (lots of people read these running blogs, so they get things from random companies to try out and review. Yes, I’m jealous. Though the idea of that many people reading my blog scares me). I often enter said giveaways. And […]

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 […]

T-minus 22 Days!

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

When I signed up for the NYC half a long time ago, I was only excited about it. I figured that it would be no problem to keep up the running after the Ottawa half since, you know, it’s summer. And that I’d be all geared up and ready to go by the time the […]

In an attempt to further delay my run…

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

I have entered the contest on Chic Runner’s website to win a shopping spree at Zensah! And they ship to Canada so it’s a contest whose prize I can actually win! Yippee! And now for a 12km run… Grumble. Though I think it would be way more fun in one of these skirts…

Meet Genki

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Genki is a Japanese word that doesn’t really have an English equivalent. Loosely translated it means energetic or enthusiastic. When I lived in Japan people would always tell me that I was genki. So while I thought I should give my Garmin a Vegas based name since that’s where I adopted it from (okay, it […]

I’m home!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Took the red eye home from Vegas last night, so it’s back to the real world for me. I did love listening to 680 news (3, 4, 5 times a day!) on our drive from the airport downtown and hearing the lead story – a BEAR in a tree. If they didn’t repeat it every […]
