51 Days to go

It is supposed to be my cross training day today. But I have to confess, I slept in this morning (due to an intense dream!) and had to run bunch of errands after work. I hope I am not disappointing you guys 🙁 I am running pretty low on energy today, to be completely honest, I was drooling when I woke up this morning. A bit gross…

I will make it up. Monday is a holiday next week!

6 miles twilight run with Lilo.
Of course I set my alarm to 5.30am but woke up at 6.30am. Too late to out on the trails before work. I can’t really complain too much tho since it was just perfect weather tonite.
Vancouver, you’re such a lovely city when you don’t cry. Please don’t cry anymore…Last week of June.

What a long day! Canada is a big country and distances are so long!
We spent the morning visiting couple more wineries then hit the road around noon. Unfortunately the rain and the construction work on the highway made it a bit miserable but we managed to get home. Lilo was absolutely bored while we were stuck in traffic for an hour around Langley.
They were so well behaved on our way back that I had to ask Ollie to check on them and make sure that both of them are in the car.

Today, I became a Canadian.
Now I am proud to say I am a citizen of two completely different but two countries that complement each other. Turkey and Canada are so different in many ways but it feels like they form a beautiful alliance.
Being there at the oath ceremony was just a memorable experience for me today.

2pm 7 miles run around the seawall.
Hi dear all,
Such a lovely Sunday wasn’t it? I happened to have a big night last night. Not knowing why, we decided to watch a movie around 2am in the morning and I woke up passed out on the sofa at 5.30am. We managed to drag ourselves to bed and some proper sleep until 9.30.

Happy Friday to you all.
Today was my cross training day. We have Ollie’s brother visiting from New Zealand for the weekend so my cross training consisted of walking around the city all day today. Not the best day in Vancity in terms of weather but at least we stayed dry.

I will keep this one short since it’s Friday, I am sure you all need the time to unwind from the week.

10am 8miles run.
First of all; thank you so much to those who heard my cry last night and donated. You guys are awesome. Thank you for proving that I am not alone in this and you got my back. I can’t express how important it was for me to pass the $1000 mark.
It made it so much easier this morning to catch the bus to Deep Cove to run Baden Powell once more.

4 miles run with Lilo.
I was thinking making a fundraising video to spread the word wider. So I started filming some stuff today, including myself running. Well that looks funny 🙂 I knew I look funny when I run but maybe I am not used to seeing myself on camera. Oh well.. it’s all for greater good. I can handle looking a bit ridiculous.

6.30am 21 miles solo run.
Well that was long and painful. I took a really urban path today. I ran around 10th street up till UBC then back on the beach and then back up on the hill to hit 8th all the way back to Main st. I was dead. Seriously, not funny, this was the longest training run I have ever had in Vancouver.

3pm 4 miles run with Vodka.
I think I am officially off from work. I still go in the mornings to check on things but having the rest of the day to myself is just bliss. I had breakfast with mom, then I had the whole afternoon to myself. A mid day run is actually quiet nice. And also I am finally able to sleep properly; I find an hour long afternoon nap just divine.

I just had too many things that I have been postponing for a while and now it’s time to make all of them happen.
