Its really difficult to comprehend how quick life goes by. It seems to be at an accelerated pace since I turned 40 ish.
At any rate a year ago today a friend and colleague had a massive heart attack. He got out of the hospital and changed his life to a healthier one. He ate better, immediately quit smoking and started to exercise.
Today we were fortunate enough to Run the Steam Whistle, St Patrick’s day 5 km run in downtown Toronto with him. It was a great experience and a real eye opener. He ran the 5 km in sub 30 minutes which is really quite fantastic.
The year flew by. We can do almost anything with careful planning in a year. It really gives me pause…………what do I want to achieve this year.
Time to make a list!
The Honey, garlic and fish sauce marinated wings are stupid good. Chili sauteed greens and the pork belly with bhurmese curry! sticky rice and….i ate too much. even after a 14 mile 2500 calorie burning mountain run im stuffed. Division street is a cool stroll in the evening. lots of little restaurants and the funny “food truck court” is special.
Love this little city
Its been a crazy couple of years, but hopefully things are levelling out a bit as business continues to grow, but allows me some time to get back to blogging about some of the amazing culinary experiences there are in this world. Stay Tuned
I will eat there tonight and write tomorrow
So todays my Birthday. It is also 1 year ago today when i decided to remove all activities from my life that werent earning me income or spending time with family. Its been a tough year of hundred hour weeks but ive managed to grow a new business without any investment other than my time. That business is wildly successful and now i hope to start back into having a bit of a life. As a result my training has been sporadic. ive maintained some fitness but no where near where i was 1 year ago when i had completed a 100 mile run among many marathons and 50s today as a birthday present to myself i did a little Triathalon. I mixed the order a bit and did a 30 km bike, a 21 km run and a 1 km swim……………..felt great. Ive been reading alot about Ironmans and know i need to experiance it for sure. My goal hasnt changed in wanting to run the toughest Ultra Marathon in the world also but for training i will be implementing swimming and cycling in an effort to be fit but not get injured as often………………so in 2 weeks im supposed to run ” The age of Sail” Marathon in Port Graville NS. Its a beautiful course with amazing people at the Aid stations. Organized by none other then my Mom and Sister Ava! The food afterwords is awesome. and a cool dip in the Bay of Fundy will certainly reenvigorate you…no need for ice baths! At any rate i may chicken out and do a 1/2 as i certainly havent trained for the full but knowing my personality that may change…a 1/2 isnt extreme is it? lol…………..whats life if im not extreme!!!
