Once Upon a Line Podcast

Once Upon a Line Podcast

Now for something unrelated to running. I recently had the opportunity to talk about one of my favourite lines in a book with the Once Upon a Line podcast. I love to read and am a heavy library user, though mostly because I have poor hold management skills. My mom is a retired librarian, so … Continue reading

Walk Off the Earth

I recently read On a Cold Road by Dave Bidini.  The book is based on Bidini’s journals and chronicles the Rheostatic’s cross Canada tour with the Tragically Hip in 1996.  It includes anecdotes by other Canadian artists on touring, recording records, making it big or trying to make it big.  I really enjoyed this book … Continue reading

One of my favourite books in the world, In the Skin of a … Continue reading

PC Magazine's 100 Fave Blogs!

At the end of 2008 PC Magazine had an article on their 100 Favourite blogs. The best part is, they cover blogs ranging from the arts, sci-fi, ugly people, humour, etc. so it’s not just IT or tech (not that those blogs are bad, but it’s nice to have variety). I went through their list … Continue reading
