This race report may be over two months late, but better late than never! I mentioned in my October Review that I successfully paced the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half-Marathon. It was quite a relief that it went successfully because I would have felt bad letting down the people who were relying on me to pace. As has been discussed in several monthly updates this summer, I did not have a great training season: I had a number of injuries including my knee, back, and ankle. The ankle injury was particularly debilitating. I guess I was also not quite so motivated. I’m[…continue reading]

November 2016 Review

I regret that I’m getting later and later with these monthly reviews, but at least I am getting them out. This blog has regrettably been a little neglected, and perhaps that is reflective of me neglecting myself and my health.

I regret that I’m getting later and later with these monthly reviews, but at least I am getting them out. This blog has regrettably been a little neglected, and perhaps that is reflective of me neglecting myself and my health. September was rough, and it’s word of the month was NECESSARY. If I had to pick one word for October, it would be RELIEF! Not because anything went particularly well, but because nothing went too awfully wrong.

I had such high hopes for September. Unfortunately it started with a sputter, and a cough 🙁 August‘s word of the month was RISE . Because a lot of things happened this month, not all of them necessarily by my choice, I’d say my word of the month was NECESSARY!

Late again with the monthly review. But, it’s out before the following month ends, so not entirely late! July‘s word of the month was YES. I’d like to think August’s word of the month was rise!
