Re: Boston Marathon 2013

I was so relieved when I found out everyone was okay! My heart goes out to all those affected by this tragedy. Yesterday was spent busy in Toronto and it wasn't until early evening when I was on the subway that I caught wind of what happened. A blurb on the scrolling marquee read something of an eva...

Good luck to all Mississauga runners!

I must say when I ran past the huge MissMara billboard a couple of nights ago in a charity run, I had some feelings of envy. Enjoy the race... first-timers, you'll love it!

Have a good time, all! :D

Dr S, Aruba... nice! Congrat's on the trip & potential job.

Workoutwise, just an easy 15k "LSD" for me today. (Geesh, that used to be an easy short run. How things change.)

Personally, lots of "contemplating on life" today.
