Howling at the Moon



This Saturday is the first full moon of 2010, what better way to celebrate than get the "wolf pack" together and go for a Full Moon crosscountry ski and for those without ski's, a snowshoe, then meet back up and enjoy a potluck get together and catch up.  My almost 90 year old father calls the Wooo Hooo's "the wolf pack" and he even had Tshirts made for all of us...too cute. 

I was worried about the snow conditions because of the torrential rain we had on Monday, but in true Canadian fashion, we have had some snow this week and the temperatures are plummeting to -23C (-9F) for Saturday.  Ahhh, refreshing!

Last week the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour registration opened up and I'm IN...well, just for the Century Ride, from Perth to Kingston at the beginning of June.  This is the ride that I missed last year due to my knee injury, so I'm really looking forward to it this year.  In fact, shhhh, don't tell Ruby, but I'm going tonight to be fitted for a Trek 2.1

Speaking of Perth, the Kilt Run on-line regristration is now closed with 815 registrants as of January 26th.  This is going to be a HOOT!

Again, I'm stealing company time, so have a great weekend everyone,

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

The Wolf Pack... too cute. Sounds like a fun night planned for Saturday. Bundle up! Just think of the BEvERages to warm up with when you're done.

Oh, "just" a century ride?? Come on now, there's nothing "just" about it!

I love the Wooo Hooo's "the wolf pack" name! That is so nice of your dad to have Tshirts made for all of you:) Have fun on your full moon ski night:) Maybe you could post some pictures!

Sprocketboy said...

Ah, churlish winter, when a young lady's heart turns to thoughts of a new bike...

Mike Russell said...

Stealing company time...classic. You should invite everyone at work to read your updates and then set them to post after work even when you format and write them during work...

Jess said...

Best to be in a pack if you're a wolf. You don't want to be that "lone wolf"!

skierz said...

Runner Leana said...

Sounds like a terrific weekend! Can't wait to hear all about it. And yay for signing up for the cycle tour!

Oh...and you decided on a new ride? That's exciting!!

Linda said...

I've been trying to get a shot of that moon for a couple of days...no luck........just clouds and more clouds.

Wendy said...

It was a little more refreshing than I would have liked this evening!

You wolves have fun!

Anne said...

Sounds like you all are going to have a great weekend! WoooHooo's I love it...I want to see the t-shirt :)
BTW, I know nothing about bikes, but it sure looks fast and pretty.

I have a quick question for you: Are there RR pacers with us during the half-marathon (as in, will I be able to follow someone from RR who runs my wished for pace?) :) ...thanks

Aka Alice said...

We ABSOLUTELY have to plan a WoooHooo/Heffer get together! Any group that's pseudonym is Wolf Pack AND has a t-shirt, is a group I need to meet!

Lisa said...

have fun with your wolf pack!

MrDaveyGie said...

Black Knight said...

Wonderful idea the "wolf pack", I like it. We made the same for the Black Knight Army. Have a look here and you will see our t-shirts:

TNTcoach Ken said...

Just a century???? I can never figure out how to get the word 'hoot' into any of my post! ha

Giorgio said...

Good luck with the training for your ride at the beginning of June.
You will peacefully enjoy that ride from Perth to Kingston on Saturday and back on Sunday.

Grey Beard said...

Nothing like some new bike bling to get one motivated :D Blue's the color? Both of mine are blue. Nice that bikes come in 'flavors'.

Will follow your training with great interest. Lots of good stuff on training out there, but I do revisit my Century 'To Do" list now and then if you get curious.
