Why can't hiking boots come in pink? http://bit.ly/1esM658

From the streets of NYC to #MantoulinIsland. So far, my #halfmarathon training has been pretty diverse! http://bit.ly/1kTef7i 
Last week, my family made their annual pilgrimage to Manitoulin Island, the largest fresh water island in the world. For the past 14 years, we have spent a week in the summer in a rustic cabin at a...

The internet is full of funny things. Here's a roundup of some funny running inspired articles I saw today. 

Happy #LongWeekend! 
I can tell its Friday before a long weekend. My office was quiet and closed at noon, emails are slow and the drive to work was half the time it normally is! No wonder so many people were sharing fu...

Time to ditch the asphalt. Trail running is badass. 
I’m a creature of habit. I tend to stick to the same running routes week after week. In fact, I’m one of those crazy runners that actually enjoy a run around a track or repeating a neighbourhood lo...

One of the best races I've ever done! Big shout outs to @TerroirRun organizer +Rebecca LeHeup. Will be back next year for sure. 
A few months ago, I wrote about the Terroir Run, a fun 11K run in Prince Edward County (PEC) that ends with a catered lunch and wine tasting. This race basically combined all my loves in life: runn...

OK people. My bro-in-law Andrew Markham is basically the most brilliant piano player ever and he needs your help to win a contest called Piano Hero: The Search For Canada's Favourite Amateur Classical Pianist. If he wins, he will perform at Roy Thompson Hall with the TSO! Kind of a big deal. Watch his super entertaining video & vote for him once a day till Jan. 22! #CBC   #PianoHero  #PIANOAMATEUR     
Watch this video from CBC Music's " PIANO HERO | The search for Canada’s favourite amateur classical pianist " . Go vote!

My first run in NYC did not disappoint. Hit up NYC Summer Streets for a jaunt along Park Ave. and of course, #CentralPark . 
I only had one agenda item while in New York City: run in Central Park. I’ve been to New York several times for work or special events, but I never manage to run in Central Park which made be very ...

Here's how you can run a great race AND help make breast cancer history: http://bit.ly/1kjUcPs  #STWM 
For many runners, the motivation to run a race is to raise money and awareness for a good cause, so it’s no surprise that many races across the country are realizing the importance of charitable pa...

My tips for summertime #running motivation involve food, new shoes & dogs. 
It’s that time of year again. The time where lounging in the sunshine and sipping cool beverages on patios takes priority over running. This time last year, I was just starting the most intense tra...
