New Year's Eve was spent running a 10K race in beautiful downtown Ottawa. It was a crisp, clear, cold night. Downtown was twinkling with Christmas lights, garlands and wreaths.
Ottawa was celebrating its 200th year as Canada's Capital City with much activity on Parliament Hill and along the canal. Fireworks illuminated the sky....it was spectacular to run along the canal, with friends, new and old, while watching the evening sky light up with colours and sounds. This was a wonderful time to let go of the past and look forward to the future.
All along the canal the houses were showing off their Christmas decorations, while inside people were preparing to ring in the New Year.
After our run, we headed back to our hotel room to check on our pot luck meals that were heating up and to make sure our Champagne was chilling! Woo Hoo....
A quick jaunt to the hot tub and sauna, then back to our room for cocktails and a long awaited meal. Yummm!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This will be the most serious of my future musings....trust me, I'm not usually this single minded.
Bear with me while I work my way through my first blog and my training for my first marathon.
Enjoy the future! One step at a time,
