Just another weekend
At the end of our usual route, we went exploring onto new trail. We followed the bruce trail along the river until Paris. Not a very well used section of trail so it was not smooth going. The wind picked up and we now had a bit of rain. This exploring took way longer than anticipated, the trail just kept going. I'm just not feeling this ride, but I was happy to get out and silence the voices in the back of my head that have been nagging me to just get out and do something.
I have been looking forward to a run. I didn't bother doing one Saturday since we did get the MTB ride so I aimed for Sunday. On Sunday I joined some fellow I.T. pro's at the Argo's game. I'm not a footbal person, but we got free tickets and it was a good opportunity to try something different. I even took the GO train in which is rare for me. We arrived a bit late to the game, but no matter as none of us were real fans. I did my best to follow the game and stop watching the jumbotron as it was much easier to follow it on the big screen since they zoom onto the part of the play that matters. The cheerleaders were nothing short of disturbing. They had little 12 year olds, probably younger, being led by an official cheerleader doing grown-up provacative dances in skimpy outfits. I can't believe the parents were encouraging that, I'm so glad I don't have a daughter. Just plain wrong. The game was over quick, Argo's got lucky and barely squeezed out a win. After dinner and a train ride home, I had no time to get a run in. I spent the rest of the evening up late working on the computer. The stress has returned. I desperately need to go for a run.
I have been getting feedback with regards to my blog. It's surprising how many people actual read it. Most feedback is very positive however, I'm looking for more input - should I shorten up the posts or not? In comparison, my posts are much longer than most other blogs out there. Races and important milestones warrant a detail post, that is something I cannot avoid as I want something to look back on. These day to day posts tend to be lengthy though, your feedback is appreciated.
Actually I'm suprised I'm not tired of blogging already. I am not a 'writer' by any stretch of the imagination, yet here I am still.
Bike - 2hrs of "Teh Suck"(tm)
Oh and my father scored some good photo and video at Muskoka. I'll trickle a bit at a time in posts over the next week or so.
Here is a video of me at the start of the Run Split
Here is a video at the FINISH of the run split, he labelled it wrong on the video lol :)
