Vancouver was shorter then originally planned but what a fun packed 24hours. I got to hang out with lots of great friends. It was also great that so many of them came to the weekly dance. Stay tuned for the Hawaiian adventure next.

As I rode my bike home I realize how much I do love my city. The familiarity of the sites smells atmosphere. I sit writing this in my back yard looking at the night sky enjoying the comfort of a place I have grown to love. I am a strong believer that without experience and change a person cannot fully understand what we have. It is tragic that often it is through loss we fully realize what we had.
The trip I am about to embark on started as a casual comment while talking with my termanlly sick dad and his response was do it while you can. With out that loss and that comment my decision probably would not have been made due to being comfortable . Because of loss I will live, hopefully love and enjoy new experiences. We only have a short time and there is it a lot to-do and I plan on trying my best to do the most I can.

At least we have a few more tomorrows to create memories and hope the tomorrows continue.

This Christmas season I ate to much exercised to little and now it is time to get back on track. With that in mind this morning I put on my new running shoes and went for a nice hour long run in -20 C conditions. It amazes me how much warmer it feels while running then biking. Biking today I froze, running I was overly hot. I do believe that running a few times a week is in order while the weather is cold and I am uninspired to go riding.
Until next time and hopefully with photos.

I pedalled fast up to nose hill to get away from all the noise of the city and soon found my self in utter darkness with my new head lamp cutting a line of light along the trail. Time seemed to freeze as I rode. It was just me the stars the night and the occasional 5 point buck. That night I realized that I need to spend more time in utter darkness alone. It reminded me of home. Of truly being alone away from people, cars or any other kind of distraction. The inner peace I found was amazing. That and also the Element rocked my world, fast, smooth and easily stand up sprintable!!
All that being said now I look forward to potential new jobs that will feed my desire to race a solo 24 hour event...perhaps Old Peublo? Any takers, I would need some help.
