Friday Things – March Edition
This week has felt a little bit like a stream of consciousness, so we are going to stay on that track with some Friday randomness or a little something I like to call Friday Things.
1. It has been a heckuva week. You can read about it here where I shared my life in a very private medium.
2. Yesterday, I went to get a hair cut and requested that she took the dead bits and split ends away. I left with half my hair.
3. This tea has been making my life. And I don’t like tea.
4. I have been rocking out to this song while doing intervals this week. I turn into a gangster when I run at 5 AM.
5. I am moving on May 1 to a one bedroom apartment and Angela and I are leaving our awesome 2 bedroom condo behind. BUT we are still looking for people to take over our lease, so if you are interested or know someone who is looking for a swanky new pad, send me an email at lacesandlattes(a)gmail.com.
6. I have officially signed with CEP Compression for another year. Stoked to keep it tight in 2015. I have an exciting project coming up with them as well as some cool new partnerships to share with you soon. More partnerships means more savings and giveaways from the best brands for YOU guys! 🙂
7. I may or may not have added a new adventure race to my calendar. I race with Team Ripkin, a solid Ontario team and I will be tackling 160 miles of state-side wilderness on my first adventure race of the year on May 24 weekend!
8. AND I am doing Paris to Ancaster, which is an incredible local bike race. It is the weekend after the Boston marathon and my coach has given me the green light for the 40 KM which is described as:
Many people have said “It’s only 40K”. Then they wonder why they are hitting the wall at the finish. At 40K long it is a very fast race. You also get a lot of the best, or the worst, of the 70K. There is the slow mud of Rose Farm and the beautiful forest of The Prengerlaan. There is the Mineral Springs Road Mud Chute and the infamous Powerline Road Mudslide that sucks off shoes and clogs bikes. You still experience the legendary climb up Martin’s Road with its steep, rutted, and wet track. If you can stay on your bike for the whole climb you’re good. It is a good challenge for many racers and it sees more participants every year.
9. I am headed to the Toronto Bike Show this weekend to buy some mountain bike shoes. Any suggestions?
10. What are your Friday things?

You deserve a trophy for getting through this week lady! I bought my cycling shoes because they were pink, not because of any sort of functionality (although they just so happen to do a great job!) but I found this for you: http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-gear/summer-2014-buyers-guide/summer-2014-buyers-guide-the-gear@gpkg/bike/The-Best-Cycling-Shoes-of-2014 and this http://www.singletracks.com/mountain-bike/reviews/best.php. Might be a good place to start?
Christina @ The Athletarian says
I think your hair looks wonderful and I totally adore that hat.
I read your article and I’m sorry that 2015 is off to a rocky start…but that can only mean that things will get better, right? Heck, look at all these races on your horizon! You are going to kick some serious ASS this year, no doubt.
Ange @ Cowgirl Runs says
I love the toque! 🙂
The first two months of 2015 have also been crazy rough for me! Last year I moved twice in four months, so I totally feel your pain! I hope you’re able to find someone to take over your lease soon.
LOVE your hair!! I just did the same thing last weekend. My hair was seriously damaged so it had to happen!
See you tonight at the bike show!
The adventure race sounds awesome, best of luck to you!!
Great hair. You’re such a cutie! And I never would have guessed that you listen to Juicy J. I had a giggle. Oh, and I have that chocolate hazelnut tea too. Yum.
Exercise is what keeps my sane too, and I might also turn into a bit of gangster when working out.
