10 Days to go

What do we do when life gives us lemons? Throw them away right?
I am not sure why I am feeling so anxious, and frustrated today but today was one of those days… We all get frustrated with things during the day, but like today I got so upset because my plant at work is not doing good, then I read the news about the beluga passing away at Vancouver aquarium; for some reason, it just added up.

Day off. I decided to go back in time tonite, and look at the photos I took since the beginning. Wow, there are a lot of them. I am trying to convince myself that I trained enough for this race and looking back at the photos kinda made me feel a bit better. I have been running for a while it seems…

I have been a warrior today. We did the Warrior Dash, which is supposed to be this 5Km of obstacles running… Well maybe not this year in BC. It was more like run down the hill, then up the hill, then down the hill, oh some obstacles, lalala, then up the hill… When it’s 30degrees hot outside too. We had a great time, but I think they needed to design the course a bit better and maybe a bit more creatively.

I have been craving to do this run for couple of weeks now. I went to the Clevelend Dam on Capilano Canyon, it is one of my favorite runs in this city. The environment is so mesmerizing, the trail is so fun that I feel like I need to go back there once a week.
I managed to sneak in a 4miles run after work, right before the sun was going down behind the mountains. Pure beauty.

(Oh boy, it’s getting close!)
I am kinda glad that it’s getting close since my body totally can use some rest and recovery time from this 6 months of training but also, I am so scared of the race and so anxious about the whole thing that I am not really ready to face it mentally.
Between long hours of running, writing everyday, trying to get more support online and offline, I am really exhausted. My mom is not really happy about this… (hi mom!)

What a fantastic day today. Riding the bike up north with good friends… Spent the whole day outdoors. You can tell by the photos how beautiful this part of the world is. Wilderness, mountains, glaciers, and lakes…
Today, I want to share some important statistics with you guys. I always understand numbers better than words, so I thought I can set some numbers out there for you to see the big picture about what we are raising money for.

5.30am 26 miles run.
Oh that was long. It was my longest run ever so far since last year’s LA marathon. It felt like it’s never going to end. It took me quiet a long time to run it too. I dreamt of a lot of things. One of them was a cold, actually extremely cold, big refreshing bottle of beer… And I stopped by the liquor store before heading home after my run. Oh delicious cold carbs.

Today is the start of something new and fun.
I have 2 packages to give away from Icebreaker. One for men, one for women.
If you have ever done any fundraising yourself, you’ll know it’s really hard to ask for donations. So let’s make this a bit more like a game, so there is some excitement and some reward in the end.

Some interesting things to report today. It’s Monday and it’s not a Monday that I was planning to take it off but my cough is still here. Pretty annoying. TOmorrow morning, aiming for an early start (at least earlier than my cough attack!)
I want to say a quick thank you to Joe and Oliver who donated a portion of their winnings from yesterday’s poker game.

It’s going to be a late afternoon run today with Vodka. I have been busy trying to organize the weekend of the race.
Finding a place to stay is going to be a bit tricky. The start and end of the race are real remote locations. I hope I can sort something out today, it won’t be fun to sleep in a tent before running 50km 🙁
