Quick Note & Monster Truck – Seven Seas Blues

Hey there everyone!  Anyone there?

Sorry for the hiatus as of late but work has been kicking my ass since we got back from vacation a couple weeks ago, leaving me without the time or energy to write anything.  To top things off, I pulled my hamstring last week so my running/training has disappeared almost entirely.  Hopefully things will turn around soon.

Moving on, there’s a local band that has been ripping  the joint up lately which you should really check out; Monster Truck.  I just grabbed both of their early EPs and have been rocking out constantly.  To me they fit nicely with Rival Sons, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

Have a great one kids!

Hey, It’s Friday the 13th!

Sounds like fartleks are in order for tonight’s run!

Watch the bushes and stay safe kids!

The Ultimate Runners Guide

I’m back from vacation, but swamped at work trying to catch up from the week “off”. There will be a post about my trip soon, but until then here’s something to tide you over:

The Ultimate Runners Guide

Vacation

Hey Everyone,

Looks like we’re taking off camping for a week, which means lots of trail runs, bike rides, swimming, fishing, paddling etc. for me…and maybe the family too.

The park we are heading to has a few decent technical single-track trails, unfortunately they aren’t very long. There is a nice long double-wide cinder coated bridle-path that runs along the spine of the park which works ok, but gets a tad repetitive after spending 5 or 6 days of running the same thing over and over again…regardless, it’s still better than being at the office 😉

Anyway, enjoy the week and I’ll give you a shout when I get back, hopefully with lots of pictures.

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day!

Yep, today is the day we folks in the Great White North celebrate Canada’s Birthday.

Frequently referred to as “Canada’s birthday”, particularly in the popular press,[4][5][6] the occasion marks the joining of the British North American colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided, in the process, into Ontario and Quebec) on July 1, 1867. Canada became a kingdom in its own right on that date,[n 1][8][9][10][11] but the British Parliament kept limited rights of political control over the new country that were shed by stages over the years until the last vestiges were surrendered in 1982 when the Constitution Act patriated the Canadian constitution.[n 2] Stolen from wikipedia

So get out and celebrate the birth of the best nation on earth, it ain’t perfect but it’s the best we got.

Have a great one kids!
