My blood pressure has always been in the 11x/70 range. Last week at my annual physical it was 120/80, still within acceptable ranges, but high for me. Today I went to buy BC pills and my BP was 135/85!! And the nurse, who weighed at least... Read more

So despite every single comment in my previous post suggesting that it was a bad idea, I've signed up for the women's half marathon, which takes place on May 31/09 (a week after the Ottawa Marathon). Common fitness sense dictates that this is ... Read more

There's an inaugural women's half marathon on May 31st that was sold out. It's modelled like the Nike Women's Marathon, with chocolate stops and massages (but no firefighters with Tiffany necklaces unfortunately) Because it was sold out, I signe... Read more

Well my 10K this past Saturday didn't go too well. It was my 10th race of 2008, and after all the anticipation of the half, mentally I didn't bring it, physically I was exhausted and after that I feel like it's time to take a couple months off ... Read more
My new MAJOR running goal in writing
Monday, October 06, 2008      4 comments

In 2010, I will run a marathon. I would like it to be a huge race with tons of crowd support (which is pretty much nonexistent in Toronto) so I am thinking either New York or Chicago. I don't think I have the speed to even think about qualifyi... Read more

Forgive me if I ramble incoherently, but I wanted to get these thoughts down before the feeling of the moment leaves me... Race start time was 7:30, got up at my usual time, 4:15 with 3 rounds of snooze. The morning started off badly, my m... Read more

Health and fitness know no age limits
Saturday, September 20, 2008      6 comments

(Screenshot from DailySpark blog entry) Wow, how very sad. Letting your age dictate what you do with your life. I don't talk about my parents much, it's because they are not supportive of my lifestyle at all. Good genes have so f... Read more
