In my last post I mentioned what I wear to run in really cold weather, add or subtract a layer. I had a conversation with a friend and she asked if my face felt tight after running. The short answer is no. The long answer is, cold but not tight. [Read more...]
Many years ago I was an editor at Toronto.com. It was a listings site where people could list their events for free.
There were some costs associated with some events but a number of those events were free to everyone. I was amazed by how many free or pay-what-you-can events were available if I was just willing to look for them and then go.

There is a man who is spending 2013 living off of sponsorships. His name is Zach Bussey. I know Zach very casually, following him on Twitter.

I’m that friend. You know the type – the one who gives books to children. When Natasha, my high school best friend, had her first child I gave her a copy of the Beatrix Potter stories (and I’m not the only person to do so). They’re classic, beautifully illustrated and who doesn’t appreciate a sneaky rabbit? [Read more...]
