Well, I successfully finished 3 weeks of 160 km/wk and all is well. Long runs were: 35, 42, 34 km and tempo and track intervals were bang-on. Today I enjoyed the day off, which started with me watching Dylan (20th), Eric (22nd) and Reid (27th) run a great race in London. Very proud of those guys! I’m now at my …Read More »
More Marathoning! Go, Guys!
So here is the Start List (pg’s 32-33/65) for the 2012 Olympic Games Men’s Marathon. Seems like it’s been a super long wait to finally watch Dylan, Eric and Reid (I’m sure they are MORE than ready to get their show on the road!!). Several weeks ago I planned my schedule so that I could have the morning off to …Read More »
2012 Olympic Women’s Marathon
So, since I’m not running in this race, I decided to run my own 42 km this morning. I intended to run about 37 km but by the time I met up with the guys and because I felt great, it ended up a little longer (and faster!). It seems that I am consistently running negatives splits on all my …Read More »
More Like Meb (and Ryan)!

not of the world
in the world not of the world 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is …Read More »
Here We Go!
Photos taken by Brantford Road Rebels. I enjoyed my two down weeks, which included 140 km and 120 km of running (and swimming and biking) and … lots of ice cream. Yep, that’s right. I splurged. I ate anything I wanted. The funny thing is that there are many things I could have eaten but had absolutely no desire to …Read More »
Plan B. Let me take you back two months. Shortly after returning from Rotterdam where I ran a PR and breakthrough of 2:32:06, I started to re-think my next plan. Coach Rick was recovering from surgery so I wanted to give him some time. Meanwhile I asked a few people for their thoughts about the best route for my running …Read More »
A little fun
Canadian Running Magazine is publishing an article on me that will be in the Sept/Oct issue, which hits newsstands the last week of August. They needed some pictures so we did a little photo shoot at the North Park Highschool track (where Kevin Sullivan attended) next to the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre where I train (and the kids are cared …Read More »
Not this time …
As much as I would have been thrilled to have my name on this list with the other athletes representing Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games, it’s going to have to wait until 2016. Lanni and I had our appeal denied by the SDRCC arbitrator this morning. Am I disappointed, yes. Am I devastated, definitely not. You just don’t know …Read More »
Another great weekend. Yes, indeed. So, I flew to Vancouver for the weekend, to run the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon. For some reason, flying to Vancouver seems like a long flight, much longer than to Europe. Strange. Anyway, Steve picked Eric, Reid and I up at the airport and drove us to the hotel (thanks again, Steve). As soon as …Read More »
