About three to four days a week I enjoy going for a run to stay in shape.
Ok, I’m lying about the “enjoying” it part, but it is necessary to stay somewhat fit.
Every time I go for a run I end up in some form of auto-pilot.
My mind will turn off while listening to music or a podcast and I’ll run at an average steady pace.
Not thinking about how fast I’m going, nor do I really care, I just run.
I’m not motivated to run as fast as I can, but motivated enough to jog faster than a speed walk (for those running gurus out there my pace is between 8.30-9.00 minute miles), I end up running about 3 miles every time.
It ends up being a solid and adequate workout in the sense that I feel like something has been accomplished and I can reward myself accordingly.
Every run is almost identical, with no major changes, surges in pace, always lacking anything exciting…until last week. [click to continue…]

What a crazy and memorable first season of Big Brother Canada!

Walking away from the Finale three things really stood out to me…. #1 – Jill “Deserved” the Win? Any [...]
Trying something new here… Last week I sent out a tweet about creating a new video segment called Asked Dan. You tweeted me your questions with the hashtag #AskDG and I told you I’d answer them on video! Here are the answers to some of your Twitter questions: If you enjoyed this video segment, and [...]
For those of you who haven’t been tuned into Twitch.TV you’ve missed some Live Commentary I’ve been doing while the Big Brother Canada episodes have been airing. Confused? Basically, while a new episode of Big Brother Canada airs, I live stream commentary on your “2nd screen.” (Either a Laptop or iPad/Tablet). It’s basically a cool [...]
After leaving my 24 hour stay in the Big Brother Canada house, one of the most frequently asked questions I received via Twitter was: “What are your impressions of the Houseguests?” Since the episode has aired, I can now share with you my impressions of each Houseguest. Spending 24 hours in person with each of [...]
