Comic: Training Wreck

This is Pi Day #020

There is a time and a pace for everything.

Life is reasonably back to normal, and I figured it might be time for another running comic for my running fans. I know there are a few of you out there.

This one was lightly inspired by true events. Yup… hit in the face with a tree branch and someone actually said “that would make a good comic!” So, does it?

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.

Short: Know Kneed (Magpie Comics)

This is Pi Day : Magpie Bonus #016.1

Every day I run with my sole mates.

If you’ve been reading this comic for the last year… well… then you need to get your memory checked. I’ve officially been online for three months! But thanks for hanging in there with me, either way.

If you like my running comics, also known as my magpie shorts, then you may have noticed that magpies are kinda, sorta, s’posed to be … well, bluntly… all those people who don’t participate, but like to comment from the sidelines. I have a few of those precious people in my life, love them to the ends of the earth, but they never quite get it, do they?

Who am I to say anything tho… I barely get it myself.

Short: Gear Down (Panorama Comic)


This is Pi Day : Panorama Bonus #012.1

Did you know that you can avoid sleep-walking by leaving your bike beside your bed each night?
Then you can sleep-ride instead.

Apparently it was bike week at The is Pi Day. It’s like shark week, but with spokes instead of teeth. And besides, a bike with teeth would actually just become a bit of a vicious cycle… of bad puns.

Yikes!

Actually, I didn’t set out to draw a bunch of cycling comics this week, but having spent the spring exploring our city –at least the bike trail parts of it– for the first time with The Girl who can now ride further than the playground, it’s become fertile ground for some deep conversations… and some “did you really just say that” moments.

As depicted in the strip, we’ve done a bit of that too: she bikes, I run, and then I pass out from sheer exhaustion as a result of attempting to keep up with her. It was so much easier for me when her tires were one-third the size. She’s just a bit of a cycle-path that way, indifferent to her poor dad’s suffering.

Comic: Just Watch Me

This is Pi Day #011

It’s so hot outside that I saw a fire hydrant chasing a pack of dogs!

I hate to go on and on and on about the weather, but I actually ran myself into a nice case of heat stroke this past week and had a few sick days to show for it. Yuck. Stay cool.

The Girl has a mental block for my self-induced run pain. She saw me get dragged off to the medical tent after my first marathon (also heat related) and ever since then I’m either “just resting” or “about to die” after a long, tough workout. There is nothing in between. Zero. On the verge of breaking my mortal coil thanks to an hour of jogging… or whatever dad, let’s play.

It was closer to the former this past week. When we get hot here, we do it thoroughly.
