April 14, 2021 – Focus on the good moments

Hey Everyone!   Huge congrats to everyone who ran Around The Bay virtual 30K this weekend! (Shauna, Stephanie, Samantha, Laura, Amy, Zoe). What an inspiring show of positivity and “the show must go on” attitudes! I know many of us trained with you through the winter, and were very inspired by your races – just […]

April 6, 2021 – The confidence to do less

Hi Everyone!   Hope you all had an amazing and chocolatey weekend.   What I’ve been thinking about this week is confidence. But not confidence as it applies to “going out and getting it”, but confidence as it applies to being able to step back and slow down. And yes, that does take confidence – […]

March 30, 2021 – Listening

Hi Everyone!   First up, huge congrats to more Achilles runners! Gillian Irving ran her first EVER 5K and beat her 25 minute goal time with a 24:52! Also Jon Feasby crushed his predicted time and ran 19:45!!! Sub-20 club. (he was already a member but from a *short time ago 😉 ) We still […]

March 23, 2021 – Fresh Start

Hi Crew!    First up, way to go Achilles runners! We still have a number of ppl running their races next weekend (good luck!) but some of us did ours on Sat. Notably: Sean Forest came out of the woodwork with a 5K PB of 21:01, Brianna who decided to forego the 18 minute mark […]

December 28, 2020 – Hope

Hey Everyone!    Hope everyone’s having a good unstructured holiday. I know I’ve taken a break from looking at and posting on logs – I will get back to that next week and looking forward to reading what you’ve been up to!     One thing I’ve been thinking about a fair bit is the […]

December 22, 2020 – Running Gently

Hi Everyone!    Greetings from snowy Gatineau Park. It is quiet and beautiful here. I’ve gone for a few runs along a snow covered rail path which is lined on one side by the Gatineau River and on the other by pine trees. It is not fast running. Every step slides or wobbles a little. […]

December 15, 2020 – Trees

  Hi Gang!    First up, congratulations to everyone who ran the virtual Tannenbaum 10K. It was so nice to see so many people supporting an industry which we enjoy during good times, AND as an added bonus, supporting a charity for a local community centre which relies on all of us. Thank-you!!!    People […]

December 8, 2020 – Mastery vs Status

Hi Everyone!    Just a quick note on some thoughts I’ve been having this week. Some of us are doing the Tannenbaum 10K virtual race this week. Traditionally our crew has capped off our season with this race and celebrated together. This year will be different, as it is with most things.    I do […]

December 1, 2020 – Share your energy

Hi Everyone!    Yay winter! It is actually beautiful out there right now. I saw lots of runners out on the boardwalk early this am, enjoying the first snowfall. Just don’t forget your lights everyone!    I just realized that today is Giving Tuesday which lines up well with my thoughts for this week. It’s […]

November 24, 2020 – Run the mile you’re in

Hi Everyone!    Well, here we are in lock-down mode again. Remember, this is a mental game and luckily as endurance athletes we are well equipped to handle it. I loved Alex Hutchinson’s article about how living through this pandemic is like running a marathon with an ever shifting finish line. Basically, humans (and most […]
