I had a good run today; I wasn’t too hot, I wasn’t too cold, nothing was hurting (much) and I was smiling on the inside. It’s been a while since I had a good run so I went further than I intended to and now, several hours later, I feel like I want to lace up and head out again.
Saturday afternoon: the perfect time to sit in the sun and practice tying knots.
Our recent fire practice made it onto the front page of the local paper.
I’m a little behind on recaps; this is the easy one because a spreadsheet tells me the number. I’m a little scared of doing the book recap because I’m two months behind at the moment and I’ve been reading A LOT.
So August was a tough month - I knew I had the half marathon towards the end but I was barely getting any miles in. A third of my monthly mileage comes from the race itself and that wasn’t the best situation to be in. Bring on September…
First snow of the season perfectly timed with the first ski magazine subscription arrival of the season.
Dan and I just had an excellent breakfast at Le Fournil in Canmore. It’s a great naturally lit space with amazing Danish and a delicious looking (and tasting) Croque Monsieur. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re out that way (and it’s only a minute or so off the highway so barely a detour).
Lunch: homemade tomato soup and the leftovers from a frittata I made over the weekend. Aaaaand maybe some leftover cake.
Dan and I had a great time at the ITU Grand Final in Edmonton yesterday. We had tickets for the grandstand and the atmosphere was incredible - at one point I even caught Dan doing a little shoulder shimmy to the music!
Now if only they’d maintain Hawrelak Park lake as a swim venue for local triathletes…
I’m pretty much set for the next few hours…
