We were both too tired to sleep

I am so stoked to be running two relays this year. Two famous Canadian races. Both are runs I’ve wanted to run as long as I’ve been a runner, and it just so happened that both worked out this year:

1. The Canadian Death Race
2. The Cabot Trail Relay

All this relay talk got me thinking about another relay I ran, almost a year ago. Actually, it’s the only other hours in a car style relay I’ve ever run.

I occasionally eat family sized bags of chocolate covered almonds. By myself. In the time it takes to watch Parks and Rec. Continue reading

Love and maple syrup goes together like the sticky winds of winter

Pancake Shrove Tuesday! You know what that means? Post-run pancakes. Topped with chocolate chips and, this will make me sound like a Canadian cliché, lots of maple syrup.

Canada produces more than 80% of the world’s maple syrup. The vast majority comes from the province of Quebec, the world’s largest producer with about 75% of global production.
