Okay, so I may have found an apartment. I know I’ve said this before, but that one fell through. So I’m not going to get too excited this time. It’s a nice bachelor apartment with a river view, backyard and a cute beagle next door. Most importantly, it’s in my price range. I don’t want [...]

I can fall back asleep after going to the washroom, but throw in some tummy rumbling and I’m screwed. So I dragged myself out of bed and made a hot bowl [...]

Before I get started, I want to share a little perk from work tonight. I was covering city council and look what was on the agenda:

That’s for my triathlon!! Is it strange that I find all this re-zoning stuff interesting? Maybe I could be “Councillor Susan” someday??
Moving on…
A dark picture of my pre-swim food because [...]

Hello! It has been another busy day around these parts. I have full mobility back in my neck. I’m pretty sure studying for long periods in bed strained my neck and allowed me to pinch a nerve easily. I have since moved my study HQ to the living room where I’m not as [...]

Well, I did it. I ran 6 miles on the treadmill today! Yay!! That is officially my longest distance to date. To be honest, it wasn’t as easy as last week’s 5 miles (I use the term “easy” loosely here). But I plowed through, doing it in 61:50. Here’s what my HRM had to say:
