109 Days to go

7pm 3 miles with Lilo. I managed to squeeze an after work run today. It’s absolutely crazy times at work, I leave pretty drained. Now after a nice shower, I am ready for dinner, and some down time. Lilo really enjoyed the run, she went swimming half way, it was hard to convince her to come back.

115 Days to go

6pm 5 miles run with Vodka. Dogs are so fun. I had a long day at work, came home, started getting ready to head out for my run. Both Vodka and Lilo got so excited seeing me putting on my running shoes. Dogs just live in the moment. They forget that they were at home all day sleeping, and their mom was mad at them for tipping over the laundry basket. Their enthusiasm and energy is contagious. So happy to be out, doing something fun.

A little history today.

125 Days to go

7am 9 miles solo run. I am sorry for the delayed post, but Bubbles had too much bubbles tonite. I am really sorry for any grammer mistakes or any “not making any sense” kind of sentences. I had a great run this morning, from Gastown to Queen Elizabeth Park and I would like to share some of my experience with you.

126 Days to go

I am a little confused, I lost one day somewhere, both my countdown calendars are saying I have 126 days to go instead of 127… A little strange. I guess Friday the 13th ate one of my days. Well well, August 19 is getting closer and closer. I was out last night to see Cat Empire play at the Commodore. It’s our 3rd time watching them live. They know how to play the crowd, and oh boy, I am glad I was wearing my running shoes. It was so exhausting, 2.5hrs of jumping up and down.

133 Days to go

I am so sorry for this delayed post. But I must admit I had a great Easter Sunday today.
I haven’t been out running (bad turkey, bad Turkey!) but we had our first bbq of the season today.
I was supposed to run 8 miles, but you know, when you have mimosas calling your name, it’s really difficult to ignore them.

6.30am 4 miles run with Lilo. Pretty nice morning out there today. I was really sleepy, it took me a mile to actually realize that I was out running.
Good thing today is like a Friday to us in North America. Long weekend, I am so ready for it!

2pm 9 miles solo long run.
It felt so good to have a Saturday off. I didn’t have to rush out of the house to do my run, then walk the doggies and head to work. This morning was a bliss. I indulged myself, stayed in bed till 8.30am. I am a better runner in the afternoons. So much stronger for some reason.
They should have more races in the afternoon rather than 9am in the morning. Agree?

RACE DAY

RACE DAY!
26.2 miles run

Been there, done that. This was an amazing feeling. I wish the rain and the wind storm didn’t attack us all like this but oh well we all managed to run and not worry about being wet.

I took the shuttle @5.15am. It’s funny to be in a bus with bunch of runner munching on stuff and anxious…

Day off running, stationary biking after work.

I slept in until 7. I am catching up on my sleep since I didn’t sleep much after hearing the news. 18 miles are apparently hard on my legs too.. I am going to do some stretching tonight. Lilo is not limping this morning. She managed to enjoy the snow a little bit better. Vodka is still acting like a crazy dog in the snow.

Day off

I lost my great grandma today.  You never get used to loose your loved ones. Experience doesn’t have anything with the feeling of a loss.
Today I wanted to celebrate her life. I replanted our little trees that were dying. Now they have new soil, new home… I want them to live against all odds, I’ll be spending all extra effort to keep them alive.
