    Week 39… Olympics Rule!

    Who else loves the Olympics? If I could take two weeks off and just sit in front of the tv and watch all the events, I would totally do it. Summer or Winter doesn’t matter, they are both equally as great and I love how they are so good at showcasing amateur sports that normally […] More

    Week 35… Firing back up!

    It’s been a while since I posted an update on here and that was the case for a couple of reasons. Anybody that follows the site would have noticed that I had a significant drop in my mileage over the last couple of months starting at the beginning of April. I wrote briefly about it […] More

Just embrace the unknown and figure it out as you go. The 42 year old, who is married and has been living in Edmonton for […] More

    The featured runner train continues to add new passengers as it slowly rolls along. This period is none other than speedy local Edmontonian, Jason Kinsella.

    Week 23 & 24 Grrrrr!

    Ok, so if you’ll remember in the last post I wrote, I made a comment about the different kinds of pain a runner can experience before, during, or after an activity.

    Week 21 & 22 No Pain, No Gain!

    The one thing I always say about running, which isn’t just unique to running I should add, is that it’s always challenging. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for the first time or if you’ve been doing it for a lifetime, whether you’re running 5k in your neighborhood or you’re running an ultramarathon. Anytime […] More
