After sitting on my ass for 4 days, finally walked around Raincouver and realized how much I detest namebrand, big label commercialism.
I spent a considerable amount of time in a bunch of Goth stores with a colleague looking for gifts for her spouse, not all of which he would wear.

I think I want to rethink my wardrobe. I saw some wonderfully tight tri top-like garments made of rubber. Very, ummmm, body hugging.

Well, back to seminar land for me. Today I'll be learning how to sit in a room and smile a lot and look interested.

 Actually there are some interesting topics, so there will be some merit to the day, I hope!

Great run along the see wall. Felt strong, ran kinda slow, but had some fast bits, just enjoyed the scenery and tried to keep my HR in check. Felt pretty strong at the end. Beautiful day, overheated a bit. Wearing tights and jacket.

Got out quite early and ran past the Running Room mobs on way back. Interesting to see that group from another province.

Used old (dead) shoes and Thorlo socks. Middle toe a little stubbed.

  • Stretching

Stretching after run

Sun came out this morning and smiled at me.

Started the run in the early dawn. Kinda windy, but it quieted down and became quite pleasant.

Full day of seminars and meetings today. I'm just exhausted.

I am a hotel.

See the Leonard Cohen song.

Okay, a little too much overindulgence yesterday. A bottle of Fat Bastard Shiraz some rich fancy-pants food (chicken livers in a sherry sauce, and penne with smoked duck sausage.) and a general late night. I'm a little toasted this morning.

Just as well, it is pissing out. And as much as I love running in the rain, I don't want to do it now. So there! tomorrow I hit the Sea Wall and Stanley Park. Today, well, Conference starts at noon, maybe I'll go to Lulu Lemon and see the Alpha to Omega of my personality.

My Internet connection will probably go dead in a couple of hours too. I probably wont reactivate until Sunday night/monday. It is 15 bucks for 24 hours!!! Bloody cheap 4 star hotel imperialist pigs!

Walked around Vancouver, went to MEC and La Bicycletta and Bike Doctor and some other shops. I want everything...chances are I won't buy much. I bought a Powerbar, I was hungry.

Give my regards to Brendan, remember me at Herald Square...

...cause I'm leaving on a (turbo prop) plane, don't know when I'll be back again...

Cuz we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun...

but now I'm dancing with tears in my eyes, waiting for the memory of the day gone by.

I am a candy-finding god! The six monsters I took around last night got so much loot that they said this was the best year ever and then they thanked me for plotting out the course - I even included a hydration station and a transition zone (empty candy bags, pillows; child one left his dagger; friend B changed his costume; kid that "sleeps over 'cuz her mother is taking a night class" got out of her slutty and very uncomfortable boots and put on some much more sensible shoes.

We ran into some other kids and the exchange was one of my favorites.



"what's up"

"how much candy you get?"

"got some"

"let me look at your bag...Hey it's half empty. I got much more than you dude"

"This is my third bag"


"yeah, it's my third bag dude, my dad knows the best routes around and we got lots."


"nice hat. want some unpackaged popcorn dude?"

"uh, no. see ya. What streets did you go on..."



I'm going to work early. Today will be the day from hell.

Friday I'm leaving on a Jet Plane.

Nice fast swim in Masters' group. Averaging 58 sec per 50m and did 400 in 8:53.
New stroke is working, although I got a little sloppy at the end.

My shoulders hurt, especially where I got the flu shot.

  • Walking
  • 3h 00m

Trick or treat walking with 6 monsters.

Had a flu shot last night. So it was no surprise I felt a little flu-ish all night. This morning I felt really out of it and my arm (site of injection) was really sore.

So it didn't go do my usual Men's follies with Matt.

I had a bit of a breakthrough in swimming yesterday, so hopefully I'll be able to go to my Masters' class at noon. Arm is still sore.
