Race Recap: Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 5K

Appears courtesy of Gillian’s Active Life. Summary: I ran a good race, but it was not a good race to run. Race Expo The race expo was on the Friday and Saturday before the race. I’ve never been to a race expo that had more than five or six tents, so this was pretty neat […]

Can You Regain Your Pre-Baby Running Speed?

Ladies, let me give you some advice: Do not fear post-baby running. It rocks. Here’s my post of proof. On Saturday, on a course that is known to be a tough one for setting PRs, I ran an awesome race. I ran my fastest 5K ever. Ever. People, my baby is not yet 8 months old. I […]
