    Lindsey and me after today's TO Women's 5km. She ran a PB 30:48 which explains the big smile. This was her second 5km ever - the first was in August (she ran 35:01).

    great TO Women's 5km with Lindsey 5 km 00:31 09:54 pace

    Ginny was sick with a chest cold, so I stepped in to pace my little runner. Last time out at the August TO Women's 5km (her first 5km), she ran a 35:01 so she wanted to beat that and PB this t... read more

    blah Indoor Track with Lindsey 4 km 00:30 11:56 pace

    Lindsey has her second TO Women's 5km on Saturday, so when she said she wanted to run 4km as a training run tonight, who was I to argue?

    My legs, on the other hand, had some choice words once... read more

    great Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront... 21.1 km 01:39 07:30 pace

    Perfect day for a run, and pretty much a perfect race for me. I had a bit of a hip issue on the left side that gave me a little trouble on the small hills. Luckily there aren't many on this ro... read more

    Quick little modification to the bib I bought for tomorrow's STWM half marathon. I'm no longer Paul! $35 plus a ten dollar change fee to get the Sportstats data fixed up pre-race. Good deal!

  6. Ending my #runstreak today to rest up for an unplanned half marathon on Sunday. I’m happy with 62 straight days of 3km or more.

  7. RUN
    great Treadmill 3.17 km 00:15 07:37 pace

    Just beat a big power outage in Scarborough that would have killed my streak. Power is out here and likely at Variety Village too.

    Day 62 is in the books.

    great Treadmill 5 km 00:24 07:36 pace

    Quicker 5km tonight for a few reasons. Day 61.

  9. RUN
    great Treadmill 3.13 km 00:15:00 07:42 pace

    Nine hour drive home from Chicago, got some unpacking done and some laundry going. And then a run. Day 60.

  10. RUN
    great Chicago Lakefront and S. Mich... 6.84 km 00:40 09:22 pace

    Lovely run with Alice along the lake and up S. Michigan Ave. A perfect city run.

  11. RUN
    great Post-Marathon Run 4.24 km 00:22 08:25 pace

    Inspired by Ginny's run and all the runners who ran the marathon in Chicago today. I got my little bit of the course up S. Columbus Dr. to E Grand Ave. Lovely trails along the river and lake f... read more

    great Chicago Treadmill 3.03 km 00:15 07:59 pace

    I came very close to not running tonight and ending the streak at 56 days. But the girls encouraged me to hit the treamill and Mac even came down to walk while I ran. How could I turn that down?

  13. RUN
    great Chicago Treadmill 3.01 km 00:15 08:09 pace

    Early wake up, long 830km drive to Chicago, walk around the marathon expo and then dinner made for a really long and tiring day.

    But the streak must go on! Day 56 was just 3km, but Mac was walking... read more

    great Treadmill 5.01 km 00:25 07:58 pace

    Watched the TDSB East Regional Qualifiers this morning at Thompson Memorial Park in Scarborough. Lindsey did well, finishing 108th in her grade over a 2km XC course.

    After lunch with my little run... read more

    great Under the Lunar Eclipse 11.19 km 01:02 08:54 pace

    Nice run with Ashley from our Bonn, Germany office. She suggested we didn't have enough hills in Toronto so I shared Spring Rd. with her.

    Running in the mornings this time of year is perfect.... read more

    great Treadmill 5.01 km 00:26 08:16 pace

    Ran with Ginny tonight on the treadmills at Variety Village. It's nice now that the kids are a bit more independent and we can both get out at the same time.

    Dug out my Dailymile shirt for the run last night.

  18. RUN
    great Treadmill 5.01 km 00:26 08:24 pace

    A little treadmill on a Monday night. A bit slower than the usual pace despite setting the treadmill to the same speed.

    I'm pretty sure that the different treadmills are differently calibrate... read more

      So, did you report the Garmin speed or the treadmill speed? I agree that not all treadmills are created equal. Gets frustrating for those of us who obsess over seconds!

      I go by the Garmin these days. Sometimes it's close, sometimes it's not. I train mostly on the treadmill over the winter so it even gets me thinking about 200km months and how who really knows if that's really accurate or not. Probably not.

      This is also comparing same brand and model of treadmill. I'd expect maybe a cheaper one to not be as accurate, but these are big fitness club models.

    alright Treadmill 6 km 00:31 08:11 pace

    Still feeling the effects of a very long lasting head cold. Yesterday was rough, today not quite as bad. I really thought about ending the streak at 50 days and not bothering with the run today.
