Warmth!

It continues to be warm. Yay! The rivers were flowing down the street. So far the storm drains are keeping up.

Michelle and I went out to 37 street, ran down into and out of Fish Creek, then did it again by a different route. Still lots of sloppy ice down there. We ran a little over 7 K in 51 minutes. Mostly nice and easy, but working on the hills a bit. I was in shorts and my favourite tech T, and she was bright in a pink run skirt and matching outfit. Very cheerful. I've never in my life considered wearing matching workout gear.

We didn't get a joint selfie. Sorry. But then if she was in the photo, none of you would look at me and my white legs. If you don't know who Shut Up and Run is, follow the link, you will be amused.



So far, there is still no photo of me with both feet off the ground running. The first photographer that can do that, providing the rest of the photo isn't gross, is going to make good coin!

Due to popular demand, here she is, in all her pink glory. Even though there is all kinds of snow and ice, it really was quite warm, maybe 10 C. So nice.



Bleached a ton of wine bottles today. It's a very soothing activity, in between bouts of chipping soft ice.

Lastly, I had not known this was a thing. It is, and it's awesome!

  1. Thanks for a fun run in the sun Keith. Sorry 'bout being so matchy-matchy. I considered orange CEP socks with the pink skirt but chickened out. I'll see what kind of eyesore I can concoct next time ;P I'm happy to keep trying to capture you with both feet off the ground. I got one of Leana at Eikiden in the fall with both feet off the ground. Hmmm.. will have to find "sports mode" on the iPhone.

    1. I think it's gonna take more than "sports mode". I think it will take Neil Z with his fancy camera on it's fastest setting. The match matchy is fun to see!

    1. The Gelato was found in Planet Organic. Just so you don't go looking and find only frustration.

    1. Gee, thanks! I'm only looking moderate, though, it's Michelle who's looking good. The gelato is very tasty. Do they have Planet Organic there?

    1. It is very yummy, especially after BBQ bison tenderloin, Linda's specialty potato salad, and wine. Now, if only I was eating it on a warm evening in Florence.

    1. Oh well, I'd mail it, but I don't think it would be quite the same on arrival.

    1. Hi Butterscotch, thanks for commenting! This container disappeared too quick to get a photo and proper description of it. Turns out my cat was VERY interested! Next time.
