Great past week...did the half marathon in 2:10 and survived despite having some cramping knees and arm (?). Did a 5k run this morning with the workmates and the boy where we dressed up as superheroes. Immense feeling of pride as the progeny won for best costume and he posed and hammer it up for the crowd and cameras, and my team also won for best costumes. And to cap it off, I ran 24:59, the best 5k race I ever did (and pushing Eamon's stroller to boot). Things are good!

It was a great past couple of days...quality time with the love of my life (my boy), my bowling tournament seemed to have gone well, and I'm getting the hang of this salsa thing. I took the MiWay and TTC today to pick up my race kit, enjoyed traversing Toronto like a newcomer, and all this despite getting rear ended a few days ago (cars get fixed, luckily no one was hurt).
Now all I have to do is survive this half marathon on Sunday...lol.
But...things are good! I've come a long way, but still have a longer way to go...
Pedorthist Jools asked me randomly if I still blog. I mean, I do, sort of. But ever since life has changed for me (marriage ending), the desire hasn't really been there.
I've always been one for history and sentimentality (I've been doing this for more than ten years now?), but I guess I've just become a more...different person. I won't say jaded (life is good, I really can't complain). Maybe just a bit more...private? Introspective? Maybe I'm looking to change the person I am, which includes letting go of much of the past?
I dunno. I doubt anyone even reads this anymore, including myself at times.
But the original intent is still there: to see what I was up to at a point in time in my life; a place to hone my (erratic) writing skills; somewhere to develop my humour/thoughts by writing it out; a place to be dramatic and cryptic; and a place to allow some people into my life that I wouldn't actually share otherwise. I hope it evolves to something better for me
