Three Things Thursday

  • I'm back running, yes, I've had the bike seat removed from my butt and I'm training for two races this fall. A sweet little 10K, Melissa's Road Race in Banff, Alberta, home of the legendary Canadian Runner Girl, Runner Leana, who by the way is in throws of beginning tamper madness before her Subaru Ironman Canada.   Hop over and wish her good luck, because I just know she is going to ROCK it.  Good Luck and Best Wishes Leana, I'm really looking forward to meeting you in September.

  • In October we have a brand new race in the area by the name of 9 Run Run.  It is in benefit of supporting the services that support us by ways of the Ottawa Police, Fire Department and Paramedics.  I can hardly wait, this will be my first long race since tearing my meniscus almost a year and a half ago.

  • They say things come in three's so I'm hoping it is over with.  Three things that have happened to me in the last two weeks;
1.  Mother Nature showed her strength and blew my patio furniture off my back deck and strew various items all over the backyard, luckily the only thing damaged was my lovely teak patio umbrella.  
    2.  Mother Nature showed her strength again this past Sunday causing a large limb to snap from an oak tree which crashed through my metal slingback lawn chair, slicing right through the seat and impaling itself into the ground.

    3.  My car was hit in the parking lot at work, luckily it wasn't damaged but I had to listen to the guy who hit me rant on about the scratch on his BMW and ranting "did I not see him?"  What?  You hit me!!!

    Life's fun if you don't weaken,

    On 3, if it were a 5 series or larger BMW, "my neck, my neck... I can't feel my neck" That might only work in the US though...

    Next time, punch the guy in the mouth and ask him if he saw that coming. I would bet his answer would be "no"...
