For those who don't know me... let me start from the beginning.
My name's Brent. I'm just a guy from Edmonton who took a job in Winnipeg and I'm parlaying my love of running, to my new found love for the city of Winnipeg. After spending my whole life on a grid system of straight streets, and numbered avenues - I now live in a very different city.
First off, the streets here not only don't run straight - they change directions and names with seemingly no rhyme or reason. In an effort to discover more of this city, I run. Actually, with my wife and kids still back home - I run alot. I do 10-15K every Saturday and Sunday, then a couple 5-7K runs throughout the week.
Yeah, yeah, yeah - it's exercise, but truly - it's something for me to do to pass the time.
In the coming days I'll write up my posts about running the Arlington street bridge, crossing two of the three rivers, and the endless run that is Portage Ave.
Hope you enjoy it
