I’m Awesome Enough. How About You?

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 02:17:20 +0000

Once upon a time, I was a race junkie. More specifically, I was a marathon junkie. And even more specifically, I was a goal-setting, faster, longer, better running achievement junkie. I racked up nine marathons, with the last one clocking in at my final goal of 3 hours, 30 minutes. It was a damn fine […]

Retail Therapy: The Grip V

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 17:49:56 +0000

The Grip V is a hand strap and card holder that attaches to the back of your smart phone. I’ve had the Grip V attached to my phone case for some time now. While it is handy for running, I find I still worry about my phone getting sweaty during my runs. No matter what […]

Retail Therapy: OPEDIX CORE-Tec Compression Shorts

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 00:13:47 +0000

According to OPEDIX, through science, and in conjunction with nationally recognized orthopedic laboratories, they have patented and perfected systems to help athletes and casual enthusiasts do what they love, with less bodily wear and tear and even less pain. They say their compression shorts are scientifically designed to improve core stability and balance while reducing […]

Retail Therapy: Nabee Compression Socks

Tue, 18 Jun 2013 18:41:18 +0000

During long runs last summer, my feet would swell a little. Usually about the 3-mile mark, and not a lot, but it was uncomfortable. This spring, as the temperatures started heating up, I thought I’d try compression socks. Nabee Socks are cute and support at 15 mmHg. (That kind of science the orthopedic doctors know […]

Retail Therapy: Nikwax

Fri, 18 May 2012 23:54:36 +0000

It pays to take care of your things. They last longer. When I was a kid, that was easy with your shoes. Just do like Dad — polish your leather shoes and throw your Keds in the washer. For whatever reason, that doesn’t work as well with the way they make athletic shoes these days. […]

Lululemon’s TaTa Tamer II

Sun, 19 Feb 2012 16:43:12 +0000

This bra is the one. I tried the BounceBreaker X years ago, and while it was comfortable, it didn’t break my bounce. The designers at Lululemon kept after it, though. No more bras that just smash and call it support (which doesn’t work for us big-chested girls anyways). I can’t decide whether I like best […]

Start Running… in the Winter?

Tue, 11 Jan 2011 01:30:31 +0000

Five good reasons to start running in the winter. After a longer than two year break from running (it's a loooong story), I'm back - I started running again on January 1st. That's right - I started running smack-dab in the middle of a very cold, very snowy Canadian winter.

Photo of the Week: Go ahead & Jump!

Fri, 06 Nov 2009 18:21:35 +0000

This photo was taken at the Calgary Roadrunners Confederation Park XC Relay Race. The race is run in teams of 3 with each runner completing about a 3.5k loop that includes two creek crossings. It’s always fun to watch each runner attempt the last crossing. Spectators yell out scores and boo those that don’t make […]

Photo of the Week: And the Sign Says…

Mon, 31 Aug 2009 03:10:27 +0000

What motivates you when your in a race be it a triathlon or running event? Do the signs of your friends and family keep you going or distract you? The photo is a collage of signs myself and Karen’s family made to keep her going during the Alberta Challenge Triathlon. Karen was competing in her […]

Photo of the Week: Just a little crowded, eh

Wed, 29 Jul 2009 06:18:33 +0000

This upcoming weekend I’m busy coordinating the volunteers for Calgary’s first Ironman 70.3 so I decided it was time to once again feature an Ironman photo. The above photo is from the 2008 Lake Placid Ironman. It amazes me how anyone can swim any distance in such crowded waters. For sure a few have taken […]
