Day 74
I am a runner. I may not be the fastest or strongest runner. I may have not qualified this year for Boston. I dream about qualifying for Boston. I could have been crossing that finish line and my loved one would have been there waiting to watch me fulfill my dream crossing that finish line. This marathon is like the olympics of people like you and me, it’s for all the ordinary people who crave to explore the horizons of themselves. People run marathons for the simplest and purest reasons. Nobody runs a marathon to get rich.

Day 73
5 miles trail running with Lilo.
Such a glorious day in Vancity. I have faith in you Vancouver, I am putting away all my winter cloths and bringing my summer dresses out. Don’t disappoint me or get me sick please. Today was just so nice out there, fresh mountain air and the sun peaking thru the forest… Nothing beats trail running. It makes everything so much better. It makes you feel so free and wild.

Day 70, 71 & 72!
Thursday, Friday Bar Method, Saturday 5 miles trail running with Vodka. Lunch time Bar Method is the best, a perfect full body workout in an hour. I am getting addicted to it, feeling stronger every day. And today, getting back to the trails was just what I needed to clear my mind from all the madness that has been happening around me lately. Being out in the woods made Vodka pretty happy as well. Read more

Day 69
Lunch time 3 miles run with Lilo. What a crazy day in Vancity today! I seriously woke up so angry to the rain, to the grayness of the day. It felt like January when I had to put on my wellies and put on doggies rain jackets this morning. Cold, wet and windy. Just yuck. So after ranting for couple of hours about the awfulness of the weather in Vancouver, something happened. The sun decided to join.

Day 68
These photos will explain the day in our household. Worked more than 12 hours, and the girls were at the daycare. I managed to squeeze in my lunch time Bar Method.
Tomorrow is another day full of chaos but I am keeping myself on track, not delaying what life is offering out there.
Taking things a bit slower than I would like to, but never abandoning them.

Day 63 & 64
I have been Bar Methoding almost every day of the week now! My legs are so tired, I can’t even describe it. This Friday night, is all about chilling, taking it slow. I needed that. One amazing thing about living with dogs; they remind you how much fun you can have with the simplest things in life. Let’s take Vodka. Every time, while we wait for the elevator, she rolls and flips on the carpet in the hallway. There must be something about the carpet rubbing against her fur that makes her go nuts. I am going to film her one day.

Day 60 & 61
So it has been 2 months of writing and not actually making a difference. You may feel I am a bit bitter today because I am really frustrated and upset about my situation here. I feel like I am turning into one of those idle people who don’t do anything to change the world and I don’t want to be that person, I am strongly against that person. So what are we gonna do about it?

Day 59
10km solo run. Such an amazing day here in Vancouver. The wind is so gentle, the sun is so warm and the beauty of this city is just hard to describe. I had to work today until 6pm, but still head out for my run along the water facing the sun, feeling the fresh warm air, taking every breath with a smile. Nothing beats the feeling of a run outside in the sun after a long week of work. And also, it feels like it’s the beginning of trail running season soon! Cannot wait!
