27 Days till departure

No Comments Community, Dogs, Family, Friends, Humanitarian, Life, News, Running

Day 1 of 28 day running challenge.
10KM trail run with Lilo.
Finally finished my homework. I did all my research, talked to lots of people and this year I am doing something different for animal rescue efforts.
I always drop by at the local animal shelter wherever I go when I am on holidays and this year I thought I can just help by bringing as many supplies as I can to the shelters while visiting Aruba and Bonaire islands.

Day 123 – 127
I am not sleeping much lately. I feel like if I don’t check my Facebook or Twitter, I am going to miss what’s happening in the world, especially what’s happening in Turkey. So every couple of hour, I wake up, a bit panicked, check my phone.

Day 117 – 122
Some of you may know, but most of you may not. I am from Istanbul, Turkey and for me Run Bubbles Run is a gateway to change this world and inspire others to do the same. I have been dealing with mixed emotions since Friday after waking up to a facebook page full of photos of my friends wearing scuba goggles, chased by the police while they were peacefully taking a stand to protect a gorgeous park in the middle of Istanbul. I got furious seeing the brutality my friends saw and experienced.

Day 98, 99, 100 & 101!
First of all, can’t believe it’s been 100 days already. Second of us, I can’t believe I was grumpy enough to not write for the last 4 days. It was time for me get a taste of my own medicine, I ran in the rain. It’s a cycle; I feel down about the world’s events, about unfairness, unjustice, abuse and neglect… then I don’t go for a run. But actually all I need is to run. I fought all my fights, went over all of my issues and reminded myself all the goodness there is in this world. It’s mother’s day afterall.

Day 63 & 64
I have been Bar Methoding almost every day of the week now! My legs are so tired, I can’t even describe it. This Friday night, is all about chilling, taking it slow. I needed that. One amazing thing about living with dogs; they remind you how much fun you can have with the simplest things in life. Let’s take Vodka. Every time, while we wait for the elevator, she rolls and flips on the carpet in the hallway. There must be something about the carpet rubbing against her fur that makes her go nuts. I am going to film her one day.

Day 62
6am Bar Method. Early morning today. It actually felt pretty good, managed to get some proper solid sleep.
I just wanted to say thank you to all who dropped me a line to make me feel better, because it sure did make me feel much much better. It’s a great feeling to hear inspiring words from friends and family. Love you all!

Day 56 & 57 and 58!
Today’s entry required an exclamation mark because I haven’t been writing for the last 2 days! Not slacking, still did my 10km on Thursday then lunch time Bar Method both days. I am having trouble sleeping properly lately, and that’s been the issue with delayed posts. I am exhausted physically and mentally but there is no switch button to thoughts.
Things will calm down eventually, or I’ll adapt to the tempo. You need to push your limits to learn about yourself!

Day 53 & 54
Since I have been a slacker (go ahead, tell it to my face), it’s going to be a long one tonite. My sincere apologies. Monday morning started with a 6am Bar Method and today is ending with a lovely moonlight run after work with Vodka.
By the way, I feel like more of you started running recently. So happy and proud of all of you who are going out and choosing the be active and playful. And to be honest, spring running is so peaceful.

Day 39
6am Bar Method. Today is brought to you by “how many dogs is required to finish a cup of yogurt in 5 seconds?” And I would like to congratulate all of us in spring time for surviving this one-hour-less-sleep-Monday. When I left for my class this morning, our oven clock was showing 4.45am. Ouch.
But no matter how tired I am, or how much of a hectic day I have, coming to a loving home makes it all go away.

Day 30

Day 30
10 miles long run in the afternoon. What a day for kiteboarding in Vancity! The wind was unbelievable. I am still not brave enough to face the Canadian waters in March but I have seen couple of kiteboarders having a blast in the city. I had to run against the crazy wind for 5 miles. It felt like whenever I take a new step, I was going backward, or like being on a treadmill. My way back home was delightful with the wind pushing me forward with every step.
