Back in the groove

Well, what a weekend.  I'm back...

Saturday was busy enough, but I still managed to get a nice 10K walk done.  Felt really good with no extra aches nor pains.  Bring it on Sunday!

I'm registered...yes, even though it is only for a 10K clinic, it's all good!  I ran a nice 10K with some of my friends from the Running Room along the Trans Canada Trail from Kanata to the eastern edge of Stittsville and it Felt GREAT!  Tonight is clinic night...I'm actually looking forward to it, even in the dark and cold.

After the run on Sunday the group I ran with all scampered home to tidy up and regroup...yes it was going to be "the girls" afternoon at the Wine and Food Show at Landsdowne Park in Ottawa.

Cheers!
Talk about an absolute hoot and if you love people watching you'd be in heaven.  I know I was!  Obviously stiletto high heels and patterned stockings are all the rage as well as short, short skirts.  (I have belts that are wider than some of the skirts I saw on the young newbies with legs up to their ears!).  We all had a great time wandering around sampling wine and food.  I even had a very cute man wander over to me with an oyster on a half shell.  Too funny!  I slurped it down and gave him a hug and asked him if I looked like I needed help!!   Once the show was over for the day and for the year, we went off to the Taj Mahal Restaurant for dinner and more laughter.

Overall, I'd rate this weekend as a 10.

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily
