The Day the World Runs

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Saturday night I took part in the Nike+ Human race. I am not a night runner, but decided to participate anyway. The idea of the Human Race is that anyone with a Nike+ chip can take part anywhere in the world. All you have to do is run 10km on the same day (this year, […]

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 […]

TIFF-tastic (an ode to Adam)

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Since moving home to Toronto I’ve been able to make it to TIFF every year for various things. One year my dad got some passes from work to the closing film. One year we ended up in the party at Ultra for the opening film. One year a friend had a film in the festival. […]

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 […]

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 […]

That’s right, Toronto is dark. There’s a power outage that’s been affecting something like 20,000 homes since 10:00 PM last night. And it happens to be the coldest night/day of the year with temperatures that are close to -20. Lucky me, I’m in the affected area. On the plus side, I had a terrific night’s […]

Yup, that’s my finishing time (chip, not gun) for my first half marathon. Not too shabby. I definitely owe you a post on the race. It’s coming. In the meantime, here’s an awesome picture of me at around the 8k mark:

tomorrow morning’s weather

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

4/5 of the weather sites I checked predict showers for early tomorrow AM. do you think early is before, like, 6:45? fingers crossed the the weather network is right. in other news, my shirt now says jenn in big pink letters. it was a pain in the butt, so that might be all it says. but it […]
