|a not so bad portion of the trail|
Sunday morning I headed into town to our local Running Room (as I'd been told that I had to start socialising again) and ran with some really nice ladies who are training for the May Ottawa Race Weekend Half Marathon (which is sold out). I have to admit it was just so nice to just run for fun since I wasn't the one training for anything. The rest of the day was spent visiting with Dad and having some great laughs with him, I'm learning to live in the moment and I've also learned you will NEVER win a discussion, argument nor anything else with a dementia patient, so you just smile, laugh, share, nod in agreement and realise that is the way their mind is working, so you tuck away your ego as there is no point trying to correct, chastise, nor disagree.
Holiday Monday ended up being another beautiful day, how lucky are we? So after 40 minutes on the bike trainer, I could not stand being inside one more minute. Off I went for another xc ski, only this time it was super icy and no groomed trails at all!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,
