Kobo Story and Review

Friday, July 16th, 2010

This post is longer than it should be because I haven’t written in awhile, my code is taking a long time to compile these days, and it’s my blog so I’ll do what I want. I put headings so you can skip to the actual review part if you so choose Part 1: Where I […]

LSD Running

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

Nope, I ain’t tripping – just doing some Long Slow Distance running. Okay, a long slow distance run. But I’m still proud – it was my first one in weeks and was made fun by the presence of one Kathleen Trotter, a friend and butt kicking training (also, an Ironwoman). We busted out about 8km […]

It’s the little things

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Had a great start to my day this morning. Finally managed to get my alarm set properly which meant I headed over to Crossfit for a 7AM class. It’s a good thing I’ve been doing the workouts on my own this week – all of those Double Unders (skipping, but getting the rope under twice […]

A different perspective

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Yesterday I woke up bright and early (well, early for a Sunday, but not as early as my normal wake ups for boot camp nowadays) to participate in my second Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Only this year I was participating as a spectator instead of a runner I spent Saturday stressing over what to put on […]

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 […]

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…

The dress

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

No, not that kind of white dress. But the dress I bought to take along to Vegas. Those of you who follow me on Twitter might remember some tweets about a lost (and then found) bracelet of mine that I left at a store I had stopped at the night before to try [and then […]

the things i worry about

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

vacation is fast approaching. i do enjoy my twice weekly spin classes, so was thinking about taking a spin class on the boat. but my instructor told me that when he cruises, he just uses the bike and does his own thing. sounded novel – and no waking up early required. but i’m no spin […]

I like most things that are pink

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

But this makes me angry. Dubbed a “Keyboard for Blondes”, this item is pretty infuriating. The best part: The “F” keys across the top spell out “Useless keys.” Frankly, I find it insulting. Though, maybe I don’t get it because I’m a brunette.
