MS Podcast

I recently was informed that back in late November, my YEG MS podcast was named one of the, “best MS podcasts of the year,” for 2015 by Healthline. For a newbie at podcasting with no formal training, which I’m sure is obvious to my listeners, it was pretty cool to receive some recognition.  Continue reading »

Decade of Decadence

This is the first post I’ve written in 2016; I wanted to write a new post sooner, but I have been busy with training for the Really Long Run to End MS and suffering a bit of an extended holiday hangover. While I enjoy writing and podcasting, the holiday season was a needed break.

Training for the 2016 Really Long Run to End MS has begun in its’ official form. While I was running through the fall, those sessions didn’t follow the rigid structure required to pull off an ultra-marathon distance. These past two weeks since New Years have followed the official structure. The first week I wanted to punch myself in the face for agreeing to do it all over again; last week I felt powerful and ready to take on the challenge. What a difference seven days can make.

All the running has given me plenty of time to fixate on the video screen in my mind’s eye. It occurred to me the other day that November of 2016 will be the ten year anniversary of the big attack which lead to my diagnosis. I almost can’t believe it has almost been ten years.  Continue reading »

Really Long Run to End MS

After some confusion on Twitter over the date (evidently, neither my Mom or I are very proficient at reading a calendar), the Really Long Run to End MS will be held on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. I’ll be kicking off the run at 5am in Nisku and hopefully reach Camrose 12 hours later. I’ve already put some feelers out to the support team/runners from this past May and most have already said they will be running again. There are also some crazy people (Chris Tse, @ChrisTse_ on Twitter, of Blitz Conditioning and Jen Ference, @FerenceJenof the November Project) who are planning on running the whole 80 kms with me.

Apparently, I’m not the only one who is completely off his rocker.  Continue reading »
