Getting My Frosty On

IMG_2523

It’s official: I’m hooked on 5k races! My second 5k race is under my belt…err…bib, after yesterday’s Frosty 5k race in Burlington. I had such a blast. There was also a half marathon going down…kudos to the brave souls who ran it yesterday! Unlike my last 5k race a few weeks ago, the skies were […]

Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

Happy Labour Day! I hope you are enjoying a lovely day off and are sleeping in right now! I like to spend my holidays by getting up at 4:15am. I am sick like that. Let me rewind to last night… The Dizzy Bizzy Board was stressing me out a bit. Actually, it was giving me […]

IMG_1442

Good morning! Sorry about leaving you hanging yesterday. I was moving at such a slow pace after the race…you don’t want to know how long it took me to write Part 1. Eric goes, ‘You are STILL typing?!’ You should have seen the look on his face when I told him I only got through […]

Good evening! I’m glad you enjoyed today’s 1,000 words post! Oh graphs, we go way back. All the way back to my university days. I used to make so many painfully boring graphs while doing psychology research, it was really fun to just be able to make a silly graph. Ahhhh, my dear readers what […]

She’s Quirky

IMG_8326

Good evening! Today felt never-ending even though it was pretty much a typical day in the bakery. My muscles felt progressively stiff as the day went on and I had lots of Glo Bars to make. If yesterday was the running half marathon, today felt like the baking marathon. I got it done, thankfully! I […]
