The end of March. That’s the last time I really ran. And while I’ve stayed strong and tried to keep my chin up…I’m getting tired of being injured. Tired of being “on hold”. This past weekend was Race Weekend here in Ottawa…the biggest weekend of the year for runners…and while I LOVED cheering my teammates on and all the other runners out there, a part of me was insanely envious. Ok. My whining is done.
This was one of my signs at the half/full marathon on Sunday – and this one was by far the most popular – it definitely put a smile on people’s faces and I got lots of cheers myself! lol
TG was taking care of his father all weekend so I took advantage of the time alone to do some major spring cleaning…and then rewarded myself with some serious hammock time…
If you follow hockey at all, you’ll know that my Senators NARROWLY missed making it to the Stanley Cup finals in a heart breaking game 7 that went into DOUBLE overtime. Now, I’m a regular Canadian in that I was watching all the games during playoffs, staying up late and struggling at work the next day…but there are a few people who take it a step further, who become CONSUMED with hockey…let me introduce you to one. My brother:
My sister-in-law sent me this…this is how my brother watches the playoff games. And he shouts at the screen and occasionally paces about the room. But never sits down. Before game 7, during the day, he texted me this:
Then after the game, I checked in with him to see if he was ok…this was his response:
I did some baking in the last few days…
Tried a new recipe for these SOFT chocolate chip cookies….
I LOOOOOVE soft cookies and this recipe is amazing.
And last night I baked some more Abby treats…
In terms of my running…I’ve been running 5k every few days. I’m slow and it still hurts. I’m doing strength workouts like it’s my job (and Abby clearly is not employed as my spotter!!)
But for the next 2 weeks, I’m not even going to think about it or worry about it…you know why?
Yup, I’m headed to Japan this Saturday!!!!!! I can’t believe this trip is already here!! I’ll be in Tokyo for most of it, but will be traveling to at least Kyoto as well! Like before I went to Africa, I am sooo excited, but don’t even know how to comprehend what I’m about to experience because I know it will be so different!!!
Happy Tuesday and we’ll chat once I’m back!!!
