9pm city run. Today’s weather was not running appropriate. It was already hot at 8am, stuffy all day… I waited until the sun was gone, late night city run is actually quiet lovely. They have these 2 pianos set up on the seawall in Vancouver where people walking by, sit down and play some tunes for everyone. Absolutely lovely.
This running everyday challenge is kicking my ass tho. I am definitely feeling the exhaustion, I am such a winter time runner.

So I missed a day of writing during travelling but still logged my runs. Today it was nice to be back in the wilderness of BC. Soaked up some sun, met some critters and conquered some hills.
You guys have been really quiet so I am not sure how many of you are actually reading and following. But someone told me to never give up & quit so I won’t. I will keep running my daily 10km, and write every day to try to inspire you to do something greater every day.

9am probably less than 10km city run.
All I wanted was to hit the park before the Golden Gate Bridge… Little I know, the blocks are pretty damn long here. Looking at the map while running, I thought if I just run couple more blocks I’ll get there. Nope. After running for 45 min, up and down, up and down, I gave up and head back to the hotel. I love running in a new city. You get the city it in a different way when you run the streets, choose random streets the turn…It’s always fun.

10km solo city run. Not knowing if I am going to have enough time before mischeif in San Francisco, I finished my run early in the morning in Vancouver. It was a good idea! First lesson learned in SF: Don't challenge any runners who train in this city. Freaking hills! Tomorrow morning I think I may need to crawl some of the streets. Anyway, as promised the 15 things that you'll never hear a runner say.

9pm 10km trail run with Lilo. So the good thing about trail running late at night, it’s nice and cool. The bad thing about trail running late at night is BuGS BUGS BUGS! I seriously ran like a lunatic waving my hands left and right, shaking my head all around to escape the freaking bugs. I mean the scenery was just beautiful with pinkish bluish sky and city lights peaking thru the bushes… Anyway, trying to motivate myself today to stick with my 28days 10km/day challenge, I found this: 30 things you NEVER hear runners say

9pm 10km city solo run, speedwork.
Oh I was aching during my run. I had my second Level 2 Bar Method class today, and I don’t remember my muscles shaking that much ever. Even tho I rested between the class and the run, still I felt every little bit of me hurting while running. Ouchy…
Day 4 of running 10km/day for 28 days. I am sticking with it. Hopefully by the end of it, I’ll have a strong base for any winter races.

6am 10km city run with Lilo.
Such an amazing morning for an early run. I keep waking up at 5.30am every morning, and I am glad that now I can fit my run before everybody wakes up in the city.
Also I received the first donation after my run which added an extra level of “feel good” to my day.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Day 2 of 28 day running challenge.
10KM city run with Vodka.
Oh boy, it was hot today. I had to let Vodka go to the ocean 8 or 9 times during our ru. Too hot for a black pooch.I guess it teaches me a lesson to get my bum out in the mornings rather than trying to run an afternoon run. But nevertheless, I finished my 10km as promised. Sticking with my mission, i updated our website a bit, updating all the links and all the information for our 2013 mission.

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.

3 months to 30
4 miles run with Lilo.
I was off the grid for a while. I was a little lost in space, trying to figure out what to do. Finally I am off from work for 2 months, and these last past couple of days I have been reflecting on things that I want to achieve before I turn 30 in September 23rd. 3 months to 30. It is a milestones for me, and I want to make the most of this year where I can still enjoy being 20 something.
