patchy internet... no blogging

just a quick update as i'm about to lace up my shoes and head out for a run through the rolling farmlands of southern Ontario. as much as i'm enjoying my family time, i am really looking forward to getting back to running with the team in Virginia.

since i wrote last, i completed the milestone 10 mile run... from here on the miles seem to increase in leaps and bounds, and it won't be long until i look back upon the 10 milers as an easy run! but it sure felt like a long one last Saturday!

gave me a good excuse to eat lots at my sister's wedding that afternoon though :)


then we headed to Ontario via the US... stopping for a run in Bar Harbor Maine and Lake Placid NY.

sea level... and 1800 ft above sea level.

at first we could not figure out why we were having such a hard time running around Mirror Lake (in Lake Placid NY).... and then looked at the surrounded mountains and were reminded that we WERE running at altitude.


today it is 8 miles /12 km through Mennonite farms in southern Ontario.... how's that for variety??


  1. Wow! I'm so jealous right now. I've had a summer cold that's gone straight to my chest and I'm coughing like a 50 day smoker :(

  2. hope you're feeling better by now, Foxxy!
