Stormscapes 2: An Amazing Severe Weather Time-Lapse by Nicolaus Wegner


Quick Note – Still Sick

I don’t know what kind of evil I ingested but it’s kicking my ass; today is day 7 of Flu-From-Hell 2012!   On the upside, it seems to be abating but it’s certainly taking it’s sweet time.  On that note, I leave you with this:

Have a good one….

Quick Note – Road2Hope

Hey, just a quick note to let you know that a recap of the Road2Hope half marathon is coming but I’ve been knocked on my ass this week with a nasty virus and as such haven’t been much good for writing.

Thanks for your patience

Have a good one.

sounds like a plan…

Had this for a while, but it still rings true

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!

I’m Back – Post Vacation Blues

I’m back!  Did you miss me? Of course you did…(insert rolling eyes here)

Our vacation was great, lots of Vitamin D, beach time, and my fair share of beer…well…my share, your share, his share, and her share…plus a few more here and there for good measure.  Aside from the constant drunken stupor I did manage to get a few quality runs in which is a VERY good thing; I had been sick the week leading up to the trip and had only managed a single run all week while I should have been peaking for distance and intensity.   I’ve been worried about how this hiccup will effect my race day performance, yes I managed to get about %90 of my total mileage in but I have missed a few key workouts that may end up sinking my “A” goal this year.  Since our return I’ve been focusing on catching up on some much needed sleep, and re-hydrating before my wife finds me in a shriveled pile on the floor.

I will be writing an Around the Bay taper post for tomorrow, but suffice to say I’ve already been fighting the paranoid musings of that little voice in my head (no, he doesn’t look like the Great Gazoo…).

Have a good one kids, hope you enjoyed the great weather as much as I did.

I’m Outta Here…for a week that is…

  Hey there, just a quick post to let all my faithful readers that I won’t be around for a week.  I’m taking the family on another painful roadtrip (hopefully we won’t blow up our car in the middle of nowhere this time).  There weather is supposed to be good, but I doubt there will be much chance of braving the ocean this time of year.

Anyway, if I can post while away I will, but I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

Have a good week kids!

2012 Resolutions?…Oh crap…

Since I’m on vacation and been spending my days hitting the pow gnar (or something that the hips kids say) instead of…oh, I don’t know…running or working out?  I thought I’d drop in and let you all know that apres my vaca (after my vacation), I will indeed be outlining more of my plan for 2012, and doing a Resolution post…

well…and a 2011 wrap up post….

…and a what I’ve learned post…

…and a decent “what to look for in shoes” post…

…and a…well, why don’t you just tune in and see 😉
Anyway, I thought I’d let you all know that I’ll be offline until AT LEAST Jan. 3rd…if not 5th…or so.

Regardless, thanks for tuning in kids, it’s been a lot of fun, and hopefully we can go places in 2012.

Cheers  Sincerely,
