Thoughts on running 🏃‍♂️ and life 🧬 from distance runner living in Toronto, Ontario 🇨🇦.


Relaunching Runner James

It’s going to be a great year of running and I’ve decided to dive headlong into blogging again.

When I started blogging again regularly back in November, 2020, I was originally thinking that I would stick to writing more introspective posts. It was more of a running journal for me than anything else.

With the purchase of the new camera, and the creation of my new YouTube channel, I’ve come to the realization that I really enjoy writing and creating content that’s for others to read, watch and enjoy.

A bunch of years ago, my blog was something quite a bit more. I had product reviews, advice for runners, course previews and more. I was a member of Team Awesome for the Ottawa Marathon twice and a Digital Champion for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon as well.

2021 is going to be a huge step forward for me in terms of my running and I want to take that passion I have for the sport and extend things back out to things like the blog, YouTube and even Twitter.

The blog is officially relaunched with a move back to WordPress and a return to the magazine-style theme I used to use. I’ve back ported in a fair bit of content but nothing from before late 2020. I’ll probably bring in a subset of the old content over time to fill out the archives.

Expect some product reviews soon as well. I’ve got a bunch of new gear – electronics, clothing and more – and I’m excited to start to share my thoughts on some of that soon.
