2013 Mississauga Half Marathon

An "expensive long walk" was my original thought for this year's Mississauga Half Marathon.  I didn't have much training and have never ran over 14.4 km in my life.  Ever since my shin issues a few months ago, I never quite regained my motivation to run, especially with cycling in high season right now.  My...

2012 Tour de Greenbelt

BRRR ... reality check, it's not summer anymore!!  I woke up with excitement for Tour de Greenbelt at Rouge Park.  After 2 weeks of inactivity due to a cold, I couldn't wait to get back in action.  Granted, the virus was still in me!  I arrived at the start under clear skies & bright sunshine,...

We were off just shy of noon.  The route was along the Humber River Trail/ Waterfront Trail;... Continue Reading →

Humber River Trail & Beyond

Yesterday's bike ride was an absolute blast. During the MS Bike Tour, Luch psyched me out about the scenic Humber River Trail - a hidden gem in Toronto.  Once you're on the trail, you wouldn't feel like you are in Toronto anymore!!  That was where we headed to yesterday! Before we headed out, we made... Continue Reading →
