Work and Play

Sorry folks but I've been busy working, doing my taxes (then db re-doing my taxes. He almost enjoys doing taxes) and running. The race is this Sunday and I can't wait. My evenings seem to fly by with just enough time to play with cats, get in a run if I need to, have dinner, and check on the garden.

db is focused on the play-offs (hockey of course) since he's in another pool and presently sitting in first place. Me? I'm not so interested. I'm the opposite of the fan that gets into hockey at play-off time; I only watch the regular season and am interested in the play-offs if the Blues are in it.

I have been enjoying Newcastle's vast improvement in their season. They're just below midway in the table and I'm more than happy with that because not long ago I started to fear that they would face relegation to the second division. They are exciting to watch again. I think next year could be a very interesting season (I guess we're not getting rid of Setanta yet, db).

I've rented four seasons of the Trailer Park Boys that I've been watching mostly when db is not around since he's not a fan. I missed the series the first time around because initially I found it annoying to watch these guys acting like people I knew growing up. Now I find it hilarious because these guys act like people I knew growing up.

Training has been going well. I feel ready to run this Sunday at 7 a.m.! I don't think I've ever run at such an early time (except for maybe the same race last year). I also feel like this is the beginning of the season for me. Already I'm pretty sure I want to run the Trail River Run again because it is such a cool race being small and so close to home, and it is such a beautiful route. I would like to do another marathon in the fall. What a great way to end the season, no? Victoria has a nice looking race and are offering a very slick looking New Balance shirt for those who register and, as one person said in Spirit of the Marathon , "I run it for the t-shirt."

Anywho...the time is ticking and I'm about to have dinner...

I hadn't heard of The Trailer Park Boys but it looks like something we might like. Must rent!

Good luck on Sunday if you don't post again before then. You're going to do great!

I just marked my calendar with your run day so I remember to think about you and send you good energy!

The tax thing seems to be a male thing. I've never met a guy who wasn't obsessed with doing the taxes...Very strange.

I've loved Trailor Park Boys from the start and my favorite is the Christmas special...Ricky at his finest. Have a great run.
