Running Passed the Farms

I decided to go for a run out in the boonies. I was visiting a friend up in farm country and he told me of a trail not too far away from his house. So I took my camera, laced up my running shoes, and hit the road. Not all of the streets here have […]

Novel Study Takes to the Track

My all-time favourite novel is Heartbeat by Sharon Creech. I have been sharing it with my class all week long. We’ve been listening to the audio book and following along with copies of the novel. I can’t say enough good things about this book. It is beautiful and poetic and tells a really great story. […]

Running Season Starts

I love this time of year. The snow has melted and winter has retreated. The air is crisp and cool, yet quite inviting. In fact, so far the weather has been amazing for March Break. The temperatures have been well above seasonal. It’s been really nice. It has actually beckoned to me and my running […]

Running Through the Cemetery

The other day, I decided to run through a cemetery. I’ve run past it several times but I have never stepped foot in it. It’s not that cemeteries creep me out either. I just didn’t think it would be right. But for some reason, last week I decided that it would be okay if I […]

Beamer Memorial Run Tour

It’s time for another installment of my Visual Running Tour. This time I drove up the escarpment near my mother’s house and ran at Beamer Memorial Conservation Area. I had never been there before and looked forward to a great exploration and a great run. Isn’t it a shame that you need signs warning you […]

Princess Point Run

When I was in high school, our cross country meets were often held at Churchill Park. This park has soccer fields and a large open green space. It’s the perfect place to host several high school teams. This park is in the Westdale neighbourhood and connects to some beautiful trails. This was always one of […]

Waterfront Trail Run

This is the second time I’ve done this. I went for a run and took my camera along. I stopped every few minutes to take a picture. Here is a visual tour of my run through the Waterfront Trail in Grimsby. I started off the run right out the front door of my mom’s house. […]

A Visual Tour of My Run

I had the chance to visit a friend’s cottage on the weekend. It was nice. There weren’t any paved roads there and my friend told me that even the airport had a dirt runway. So I laced up my running shoes and did something I don’t normally do. I took my camera along on my […]

Running Club

I started up a running club this week. I was hoping to get kids at my school excited about running. I tried it last year but didn’t have much success with it. I wanted it to be something that everyone could come out to. I designed a small loop in which we could run laps […]

The Season Begins

Yesterday was a beautiful day. It felt like the perfect day to go for a run. So I laced up my new shoes, the ones I bought on sale weeks and weeks ago. The same shoes that have been sitting patiently in the front closet, waiting for this day – the start of my running […]
