Hi Blog!

It's been a long time.  But in my world it seems like it's been a couple days at most.

I ran the Calgary Marathon 10k (in 1:05...easy for me, should have pushed myself).  Then I started into the training for SeaWeeze.

Jet played ball May and June and then tried out (and was accepted) by the All Star team.  So we spent the ENTIRE end of June, July and first 2 weeks of August either at practice or in small town Alberta for tournaments.  6 night a week?  For 8 - 10 year olds?

He had a blast, made some good friends and got in front of the "right" people.  Sad, but true.  You gotta play the game.

Had a good friend pass away from a work accident at the end of June.  That rocked the worlds of a bunch of us, been friends since high school.  Everyone came away from that vowing to honour old connections and I think we'll succeed.  One of Adam's buddies flew half-way across the country on a couple of days notice just because he knew we needed him here.   Nice to have friends like that.

In the end, I don't think I ate a vegetable or worked out for 6...maybe 8 weeks. 

Oh...and SeaWeeze was the same weekend as Jet's All Star Prairie Tournament.  So I chatted with my sister and she agreed that I should watch him instead of going so still no half -marathon for me.   Next year.  Possibly the Wine and Dine Half to celebrate my 40th birthday.


Started working out again this week.  Gone back to my old Gunnar Challenge workouts.  Feel so good!  I think they're starting a new challenge soon.  I should sign up for it.

Gotta get in shape for our Christmas trip to Florida!
