58 Days to go
Well I need to say, going around the wineries is quiet the workout. I am going to count this as my cross training since we have been walking around all day. It’s a tough day after all once you finish going thru 12 wineries…
Maybe a bit too much? But it’s so good!

66 Days to go

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 5 miles run with Vodka
Really nice run today. We were inside Stanley Park, went up to the prospect point from North Creek trail then down on Rawlings trail (which is one of my favorite pleasant trails).
Tomorrow is Lilo’s turn. We will hit the trail early in the morning for a longer run.

3 miles run with Vodka. I took Vodka to the Cleveland Dam, thinking that I am familiar with the trails around the canyon. Doh, obviously I am not. I didn’t get lost but I found new trails, which were fun and experience. It’s a bit trickier to run with Vodka on the trails, she likes to lead but sometimes she doesn’t pay enough attention to the terrain.

Monday rest day. Today, I had to put the cone on Lilo. She injured her paw running last week, and she has been licking it since. I was putting on an ointment and I was asked to make sure she doesn’t lick the ointment. Right.. So I didn’t want her to deal with the cone and I trusted her, but after a week, she kept licking and licking so today she got the cone. She is not happy of course.

I am sooo tired. 2.30pm 4 miles solo run.
I just wanted to run the beginning of Baden Powell Trail at Grouse. Little I’ve known, the beginning of that trail is almost like the Grind but without the stairs. I guess I asked for more branches and rocks instead of stairs. I got enough, thank you very much. Such a narrow trail too. I am glad I listened to my instinct and didn’t bring one of the girls with me.

Wow, 2 digit days start today.
What a crazy Friday today. It was supposed to be my last day on this project. The project being Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. It’s going to be a good movie but oh boy it’s been a long one. Anyhow, I just need to go for couple of hours tomorrow and maybe couple of hours more next week. I need my regulated, normal life back.

And today, apparently there was a fire on our building 30th floor.

8pm run with Vodka.
I didn’t record my run tonite. The run wasn’t for me, it was more for Vodka. I worked from 7.30 am to 7.30 pm today, so I am not feeling to energetic. Once I got home, of course my 2 crazy labs are not aware of my long exhausting day. All they think is “play?”. So I put on my running shoes, and took Vodka out for a run around the lake.

Monday, is off day. Not feeling a bit sore from this weekends runs. Surprising to be honest. My calves were hurting really bad yesterday. Another week of training starts. I will enjoy my day off dearly.
Oh before I forget, Mary Ellen, if you are reading this, I donated your blankets to BCSPCA. They were really grateful for them. Thank you!

12pm 4miles run around Cypress Mountain. Wow what an experience today. I blame the mountain bikers for today’s chaos. Ollie was going snowboarding to Cypress Mountain today and I asked him if he can drop me off half way since there are trails going all the way to the top of the mountain and I thought it would be a fantastic exercise. This map seemed quite straight forward. Take skyline trail and then up on Baden Powell. Not so much…
