Day 87 & 88
8 miles trail run and a day off after. Finally managed to run Baden Powell from Deep Cove to Lynn Valley again this year. I have been planning on running this route since the rain eased out. It just takes a bit of logistics to organize this run. I have to catch a bus from home, and also have to time the bus home at the other end. For anyone who is curious about doing the same trail, here is a link to the trail map. I just managed to miss my bus home by 3 mins. It also started to rain at the same moment. I waited in the rain for 30min. It was NOT fun.

Tonite, I took the girls for a nice and longer than usual walk. It’s a pretty nice evening in Vancouver. I saw this old man, standing on the side of the sidewalk, he looked like he was in pain. I made eye contact with him, and he said “excuse me ma’am, can you help me?” I asked him what’s wrong. He started describing his day, where he had a chance to eat a lot and was pretty happy then wasn’t able to find a toilet for a while, then he found one but after that he started feeling empty again. Yes you may think it was a bit of too much information.

Then, he told me that he is just feeling the lack of energy now. Then he said “thank you” and carried on walking slowly. He didn’t ask for money or anything, I didn’t have anything other than my keys with me anyway but I think he just wanted to talk to someone. Maybe talking to a girl walking 2 nice dogs was what he needed. At least that’s what I am going to take out of this experience.
Be independent but don’t ever be too individualist.
Lots of love. xo
