I plopped the headband over my hair because that way it doesn’t slip. I looked a bit dumb but who cares. It was the morning and I was running! It kept my ears warm and I didn’t have to fiddle with it at all! Success! I’ve got a lengthy podcast roundup coming up later. Lots of interesting stuff this week. Now time to shower and eat! #run #runblr #running
Went for a morning run with Zoe-bear. It went well. I was a bit sluggish. They can’t all be amazing. Right? Watered the coldframe after a little bit of neglect while being sick. Still some green stuff. But I’m mad at myself for not watering when I was sick. Boo. Got a bunch of new seeds. Going to post those later. Some really interesting ones! #running #runblr #run
Duckies!!!! Obviously I ran to see them. And then I wondered about how cold they must be. So cute swimming around. I see ducks and squirrels a lot around here. But every time I see animals I’m excited and amazed by them. They are never boring :) and always cute. #ontherun #running #runblr #ducks #water #nature
Only a runner can watch the Walking Dead and think “oh shit look at all that open space with no traffic, no cars and no limits!”
Only a female runner can watch the Walking dead and think “oh shit look at all that open space with no traffic, no cars, no limits and no creepers to worry about, just zombies!”

I think I actually participated in this study, and the results and findings are really interesting.
Another run, another podcast!
A new one and one that I was finishing from a previous run. And I’ll post about a few others I listened to during the week and forgot to mention.
I had a good run, although I felt a bit groggy. I think it’s caused by too much paper writing.
I was just totally shocked by this one. How does this guy have supporters? It’s a really pathetic story. For one, he is claiming he doesn’t need help. And secondly, it seems people think it’s really hilarious. It’s the running joke right now. It’s true, it’s a great week for comedians. And I’m not going to stifle my laughter when it comes to Rob Ford crack jokes, but amidst the laughter I hope that people - young folks especially - realize the cold hard fact that this isn’t really so funny if you’re a Toronto resident. Or at least, I would hope not. It’s not funny when a mayor, or leader does something like this. Because that’s someone who’s calling the shots and making decisions for your city. It makes me think that people don’t have any respect for their own communities. I hope that the people of Toronto crank up the pressure on city council and on the mayor. He needs to go.
A few more podcast roundups after the jump.
