  1. RUN
    great Rats Tuesday 7.33 km 00:49 10:38 pace

    I have to admit that I was a little on the cranky side going into this one. The rain/drizzle and slight wind had me second guessing whether I should be outdoor or in but I managed to get my butt ov... read more

  2. RUN
    great Sunday LSD 15.32 km 01:50 11:36 pace

    Great run with Linda B. today despite the drizzly conditions. Tons of runners out along the MGT and lots of them in shorts! Can't complain about running in above 0 temps in December!

  3. RUN
    great Saturday run with James 5 km 00:31 10:01 pace

    Headed out this morning for an outdoor 5k with James! He did all the talking and I did all the huffing and puffing with one word answers! Still it was great to run with him! Might even be a 5k PB.

    great Monday morning LSD 11.02 km 01:16 11:02 pace

    Started out my extended weekend with a chilly run along the lake. Thankfully the wind was behind me on the way out so the first half wasn't too cold. It was lovely listening to the surf as I r... read more

    We decided to try family night at the gym so the girls did their thing while James and I hit the treadmill. I was pretty sure this wasn't going to be a great run but it went much better than e... read more

    good Sunday 12k 12.45 km 01:31 11:43 pace

    Last day of November and it was t-shirt weather! Woohoo!! A lovely but sometimes windy run with Linda B. with a long butt kicking hill in the middle that we conquered. I need a nap now though, I&#... read more

      We kicked that hill's butt! This should be our new motto.

    alright 5k at VV 5 km 00:34 10:52 pace

    Begrudgingly took my arse to the gym tonight, now I can't beat myself up for not going. Meh.

      Meh is much better than the regret you would have felt if you didn't get it done. :)

      Were you trying to do more or less than 17km? Either way, your pictures on Facebook show interesting scenery, good company, and treats at the end! That's a great run at any distance.

    alright Sunday run with Linda 14.63 km 01:47 11:45 pace

    Met up with Linda today and headed out. Was a nice run with lots of chatter but I felt pretty tired by the end. I can definitely say I'm not missing the hot, humid, chaffing days of summer!
