Since the Sporting Life 10K 2012, I’ve been on a bit of a running hiatus. My ITBS injury has turned into something worse that has me limping on most days. It’s painful to walk. I have been ready to give up running, just to have the chance to walk as usual again. However, my new doctor is confident that I’ll be able to run again, and run again soon. To make a long story short, my excursions as of late have been seeing a physiotherapist, cycling, swimming, and a new found love, weightlifting (more on that later).
Yet cycling is the one thing that gives me my much needed escape. It’s my main mode of transportation through my city and I cycle every chance I get. A few days ago, The Globe and Mail put up a story on the West Toronto Railpath:
The path has been a secondary route for me in The Junction. I have a set route I usually take to get downtown, but the path is a great respite from regular traffic. Today, as an alternative, I took it on my way to the lakeshore. Here are a few photos of its 2 km length (the proposed full length is 4km and I wish it were so much longer).
