Step two...

The next phase of online self indulgence.
I made the mistake of monkeying around with my original BLOG located here and ruining it.
I am useless.
I am starting over..and here we go.

It is more like stumbling...

I took up running as a form of exercise about 3 yrs ago after being inspired by my son...which is a pretty neat thing when I think about it.

I love it....but I am not fast...not even remotely.

I have never been fast really.

When I was younger I played a lot of basketball and was quite good.
 I played the 2 spot and could shoot it really well .Had a knack for getting a clean look...which was a good thing.. because I was slow...

My goal has been to run 5 kms in under 30 minutes consistently.

This time is laughable to most people. Mothers pushing babies in a strollers are at the pace that I am.

A couple of summers ago I was right around 28 minutes... cant get back there for the life of me but I don't give up easy.

I went for a run today.

I didn't expect much. I had just gotten done a brutal set of 12 hrs shifts and was in truth a little hungover this morning.
The last time Id been out I had to pack it in after about 3.5 kms because of the heat and humidity and I was dying to redeem myself.

I had a good run today.

Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to it. I just felt like I could go forever.

I wish now that I had pushed myself a little bit harder with the pace but either way today was very encouraging....and every bit helps.

If only I could lay off the beer...but whos kiddin who....


  1. Oh the beer...
    God bless beer!
    I know...Why don't you run your fat ass down to the beer store! That muskoka creame ale in the tall can is tits. My favourite by far right now. By far!

  2. Here are two beers that I have been diggin for the Patio/BBQ

    The Leinekeugel (sp) stuff gets some pretty harse reviews and for the life of me I dont know why.
    It is hard for me to imagine that there are beer drinkers out there that are even more picky and snobbish than me...but to my palatte these two are top shelf for the summer months.
    The bonus is that you cant get them at Meijer so I wont go broke getting drunk.
    And yes Muskoka Cream ale is tits albeit a wee bit heavy for the summer..
    Big rock Grasshopper is another solid option...HEY!!
    Might be time for a top ten Beer movement with the Bloggin community!!!!
    WHAT SAY YOU HOMOS!!!!!?????!!!!!!
