I did it...

I survived! LOL! Actually, I did more than survive. I finished strong in a hilly race that didn't get any easier than the last time I ran it, but I was happy with my finish and I'm looking forward to signing up for some more activities. Next up is the UofA Faculty Club Run on April 17th with Ellis and it's one of our faves - probably because it's also known by our group of friends as "The Beer Run". Yep - Big Rock is a sponsor, so they offer free beer and champagne/OJ after the run, along with the most spectacular breakfast Coincidentally, it's usually around the time of my birthday and since it's not my turn to drive this year, we're heading out to Julio's again for Bulldogs afterwards. I'm also still collecting pledges for the 2-day, 185 km bike tour in June, so if you're a Canadian looking to support the MS Society, please consider donating through my link on the right.

I did up a birthday card last night for a friend's birthday tomorrow, but I didn't get it uploaded in time to show you today. That's on my to do list for tonight. It's a fairly simple card using Karen's Sweet Sunday  Sketch 60.

Into the countdown for my vacation days now...yahooo! So much to do and so little time. But sunscreen is definitely on the list - and I hope I get to use it. With the hopeful participation of Mother Nature while I'm in Punta Cana, I'd also appreciate decent weather to come back to Edmonton with. However, since March came in like a lamb, I'm fully expecting the whole 'out like a lion' business. If that's the case, I'll suck it up...we've had an amazing month of great weather. When I ran the St. Patrick's Day race two years ago, it was -20 and snowing. Yeah - I'm not complaining =)


  1. Congrats on doing so well! You should be proud...I will be thinking happy weather thoughts for you and wishing you safe travels. Have an "umbrella drink" for me when you get to Punta Cana! Can't wait to see your card too!

  2. Congratulations on finishing your run! You should be very proud - I can't run at all so I am in awe at those that can. Have a wonderful vacation :)

  3. Congrats on the run :D I have never run any races but my SIL runs marathons (crazy nut LOL!). I bow in your general direction because 3 miles is the most I have ever run. Glad you enjoyed it and the weather decided to cooperate a bit more this year :D
