Last night I joined a 5K running clinic at the Running Room, I can already run 5K, but I do it so slowly and I haven't been running regularly. I feel like paying for this clinic makes the commitment more serious and makes it more likely that I t... Read more
On Saturday I went on the Tweed Ride Toronto! It was super-fun, even though the weather was much too hot for wearing tweed! It was a fundraiser for Bikes Without Borders. We wore old timey tweed and met in Trinity Bellwoods Park for live music (... Read more

It's Bike to Work Day! I joined one of the group rides down to City Hall for breakfast, speeches and a bike fair. I feel so safe and visible riding in a group of cyclists, I wish I could ride to work in a group every day!
I "need" new running shoes because my two beloved pair of New Balance shoes have really been working hard! I took a chance on buying these minimalist shoes last night. I haven't worn them outside yet so I can still return them.
