Things are going well here, but busy. Mark has a consult for laser eye surgery in Ottawa today. Yay!
He is still sticking around until Nov, then the training really begins. Tour dates have changed AGAIN.

I am still drinking the crossfit kool-aid and I am well on my way to being able to deadlift 200lbs. I lifted 185 as my max last weekend and failed at 195. Also joined gymnastics again. I can do a back tuck, a kip and an aerial cartwheel again. Also a handstand pirouette. Woohoo!

The kids are great. Got their school photos back and they are the cutest ever.

30:08 official time
28:38 chip time
6:02 pace/km

05:31 pm - TOMORROW!

I am running the Army Run 5km in Ottawa!
Mark is running the half marathon.

5km is a comfortable distance for me so I am hoping to make it a personal best!
Entered in the 25-30 minute pace group, but am hoping to be closer to 25 mins.

Getting on the bus at 5am!
Can't wait!
Money goes towards Soldier On.

Ran the Terry Fox 10km today on base. It was great and I kept a really nice pace throughout.
Feeling like total shit today. Allergies. I can hardly see and my mouth is irritated. BOOOOOooo. :(

Official race result for my 8km was 51:23.

Awesome race! I came in 6/8 for my catagory, which isn't bad for my first race I don't think!
I ran the whole 8km feeling like a million bucks, so what more can I ask for?

05:20 pm - England

So we are hoping to take a family vacation next summer to England while M is on leave from Afghanistan.
Hopefully it will work out this time as I have not been there in over 10 years and I am anxious to go.

We would stay with my aunt and uncle for part of our stay, at their B&B in Gloucester, and I have another aunt and uncle close by whom we could likely spend an additional week with.

I found my aunt and uncle's B&B website. Last time I stayed with them was before they had opened their home as a B&B and their 2 boys were still living with them, but now they are empty nesters living in a big home.


So beautiful.

I am supposed to run an 8km race in Ottawa next weekend and am doing the 5km army run on the 20th.
Can't wait!

What does this Rorschach blot look like to you?

A pelvic bone.
