Three Things Thursday

Crazy, Crazy, crazy....my life!

  1. May has been exceptionally busy, my father celebrated his 90th birthday at the beginning of the month, and since he has finally given up his driver's licence I went home to help celebrate the monumental event with him.  Fun times that's for sure, if I have even a little bit of his energy if I make it to 90, I'll be forever grateful!

  2. I'm back running, gah!  I've even participated in a 8K Trail Race, which by the way was too much fun, so I signed up for the whole Beaver Chase Series....But....Who knew you could get sooo out of shape so quickly.  Albeit I've been cycling, it doesn't count....running is a whole other animal.  New shoes are required so I'm on the hunt for the latest and greatest.  I've always worn Saucony's, so I'll be heading off to source some out after work today. 

  3. This past weekend was spent with my ass in / on the saddle, yes, I was on one of the last long rides before the Rideau Lakes Century Ride which is June 5 and 6.  The weekend was spent cycling around the ever so lovely Prince Edward County, with distances totalling 265K.  This area is absolutely stunning and we missed so much of it (details to follow), I feel another road trip coming on.......yippppeeeee!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,

And here I'm sitting and stressing about the lousy 175 km that's on my riding schedule for this weekend. Wow, great to read you are enjoying the riding.

Happy belated b-day to your Dad.
