Dear Obstacle Racers… Stop With The Race Recaps

Posted on November 27, 2017

The last time I read a race recap worthwhile reading was sometime in 2013. The only thing less interesting than not doing a race is reading about a race that you have not done. And no Spartan Sprint or Tough Mudder or Warrior Dash or… that has taken place in the last five years needs

Limberlost Challenge 14k – Race Recap

Posted on July 17, 2017

On a Friday night, when some (clearly more intelligent) people are lining up to enter a nightclub, or ordering their second Negroni, I find myself laying in a small tent on top of two yoga mats, wrapped into two blankets with a couch cushion under my head, intensely staring at a mosquito stuck between the

2017 Ragnar Relay Niagara – Race Recap

Posted on May 23, 2017

Wanting to take advantage of early registration price, we were registered for Ragnar Relay for many months. This race has been on my radar (and therefore, on my bucket list) for few years, yet I could never make it happen for two reasons: 1. timing – most of my weekends in the summer would have

Ragnar Trail 2018? I am in. :)

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”. – Kahlil Gibran Why would I want to run a race barefoot? Not sure. But it’s on the bucket list, so that’s good enough for me. I figure there are enough items on there

XMANRACE Toronto 2016 – Race Recap

Posted on May 24, 2016

I was thrilled to see XMANRACE arrive to Toronto – this race series got nothing but positive reviews from fellow racers in the past, yet all the locations have previously been in Quebec, so I was not able to make it out to one of their events. Until this year! According to the race website:

Fuego y Agua Nicaragua 25km-ish Trail Run – Race Recap (the Gollum edition)

Posted on February 15, 2016

“Wake up. Wake up. Wake up, sleepies. We must go, yeeees, we must go at once”. Last year I took off shortly after the Survival Run (right after the Beer Mile, to be exact) – I needed some time to decompress, and, while it was the right call at the time, I missed being part

Spartan Sprint Tahoe 2015 – Race Recap (and an unexpected bucket list item!)

Posted on October 9, 2015

While the Championship Race on Saturday was the highlight of the weekend, lots was happening on Sunday as well – Ultra Beasters took off nice and early, followed by few more waves of the Beast, and then the Spartan Sprint – including the competitive wave, as well as the charity race, special wave for the

Spartan Super Toronto 2015 – Race Recap

Posted on July 23, 2015

When in doubt, wear a kilt. I had a much more pleasant day at the Spartan Super on Sunday (compared to Spartan Sprint on Saturday)! Damage control included awesome company, slowing the fuck down, wearing a hat, sunglasses, wet towel on my neck, ice pack in my hydration bladder and enough sunscreen to drown a

Fork In The Road 5k – Race Recap

Posted on May 4, 2015

This weekend I took part in Ontario’s newest trail run – Fork In the Road 5k – a trail run with a twist. From the race website: So, this is a 5k race, which could end up being 8k! Fork In the Road 5k is put on by the same organizers as MudNewton – one

my first beer mile

Posted on February 24, 2015

This whole beer mile business… I was never convinced. I love running. I love beer. But together? Just because I love both, does not seem like a good enough reason to put them together. [Peanut butter is an obvious exception here. Peanut butter goes with everything.] The fact that I am an incredibly light weight
