Fort Edmonton Footbridge Halfpipe

Fort Edmonton Footbridge Halfpipe- After running almost 2,000 kilometres over the past year, I need to switch up my training. With almost a year until the next Really Long Run to End MS, I have the opportunity to explore some different types of training; training which will hopefully elevate my conditioning and make next year’s …

“Shut The Front Door!” and there are good people everywhere

  “Shut The Front Door!” and there are good people everywhere- The image above is the text message my mother sent me when I informed her we had reached $20,000 in fundraising for the Really Long Run to End MS (which I run this Saturday). Her exasperation was mirrored by my own. I’m still in disbelief that …

Training; the first two weeks

Training; the first two weeks- In the fall I had been training for my “Really Long Run to End MS,” but it was looser (i.e. much easier for me to justify taking a day off). Now, with 18 weeks to go until the bug run, I don’t have the leisure of taking unscheduled breaks. I’m …

Training with Multiple Sclerosis

Training with Multiple Sclerosis– If you read this blog or you know me personally, you are probably aware that I’m training to run 85 kilometers in a single day to raise money for the MS Society of Canada. I trained to run half marathons before, but training to run 85K is altogether different. It is the …
