Cross country running is one of my favourite activities. I love exploring a new trail, taking some pictures, and sharing my journey with you. Hopefully, you will discover a new trail to explore with these posts and photographic tours.

  • Bridal Veil Falls

    Bridal Veil Falls is located in a small village on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. I spent some time on the island last week and wanted to find a few interesting places to run. This definitely fit the bill. Here you can see the Kagawong River which flows from Lake Kagawong to the North Channel of […]

  • Running During the Corona Virus Lockdown

    I love trail running and I didn’t think I’d be able to do it during the Corona virus restrictions that have been in place for a long time now. Fortunately, there are many trails that are still open in my area. There are signs posted to help people continue the social distancing that we all […]

  • A.W. Campbell Trail Run

    A.W. Campbell Conservation area is located in the small township of Brooke-Alvinston, Ontario. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the front entrance or the trail map when I was there for a run on the weekend. But let’s go on a little tour of the place nonetheless. There are 40 campsites, various playgrounds […]

  • That One Time I Ran Steeplechase

    In middle school, I ran track and cross country. I still remember the first time I went to a meet and saw this beautiful red track. I was in awe. The surface was soft and had a bit of a bounce to it. It was nothing like the dirt tracks I had seen. In fact, […]

  • Tower Trail at MacGregor Point Provincial Park

    MacGregor Point Provincial Park is located at 1593 Bruce Road 33 in Port Elgin, ON. Canada. There are several trails that you can run or bike on here. However, you have to pay a day-use fee to access the park. If you don’t want to pay the day fee, you can make your way to […]

  • White Trillum Field

    See the Trilliums While You Can

    I love trail running this time of year and getting to see trilliums starting to bloom. Warbler Woods in London, Ontario is one of the best places to see Ontario’s Provincial Flower every spring. The flowers line the trailside and it is absolutely beautiful. The trillium needs a lot of sunlight to survive. Unfortunately, wooded […]

  • Strange Ice Hills at the Beach

    I decided to stay active this winter. Normally, when it starts to get cold, I hang up my running shoes for the season. I don’t like running outside when it gets below 5°C. The funny thing is, it’s been warmer than that several times this winter and I have taken full advantage of that by […]

  • Beach Run

    Still Trail Running in January?

    If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you will know that I normally have an off season when it comes to running. I just don’t like running in the winter. So, it’s kind of surprising that today, January 5th, I went for a run outside. I wore jogging pants, a t-shirt, […]

    Staying Fit and Active This Winter

    For me, running season lasts from about April or May to October or November. I like to take the winters off for a variety of reasons. This year, however, I am not sure that is a good idea. First off, starting back in the spring is getting more difficult for me. I felt really out […]

  • Thames Grove Conservation Area Trail Run

    I love exploring new places to run. Today, it’s Thames Grove Conservation Area in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. This boat launch looked nice. It made me wish I could go floating down the river on this lazy afternoon. Here is a little information about the Thames River, if you are interested. I didn’t stop long to read […]
