I could love summer if it would just stay like this

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

While the Shuffler dubs summer the second-worst running season, I am afraid I have to disagree.  To me, summer is the worst running season.  Here in Southern Ontario, we’ve had a heat wave topped with a giant dollop of humidity.  Even at night the temperature wouldn’t dip below 25 degrees, so the world couldn’t even […]

“An update on project earlier bird” or “How to get back on track when the wheels fall off your bus”

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Has anyone noticed that I haven’t said anything about project earlier bird lately? Insert cricket noises, innocent whistling. The fact is, the plan went just fine for the first two weeks or so and then the wheels fell off the bus. (It’s a dead giveaway that I haven’t been crowing loudly about my success every […]
