Day 796
People of the internet, a long run today.
Went out with the old ICU crew to complete a big 94K relay, from way outside the town of Lindsay all the way through Omemee and back to Peterborough. My leg was a 12K stretch through the town of Omemee and just past the rail bridge.
Kudos to everyone who rallied together to organize and map routes, there were a few people who got off track a bit, including myself (I did an extra kilometer in the wrong direction) but we made it!
Today I ran 12K with the ‘ICU Pacers’ in an epic relay race.

Day 793
People of the internet, Admiral Ackbar.
If you’re going to collect LEGO Star Wars sets, you’ve got to have the Admiral Ackbar minifigure, it’s just too cool.
The A-Wing build was a lot of fun, love the look of the set and LEGO has done a sweet job capturing all the angles and curves of the spaceship. My one gripe is that there isn’t a single printed piece in the whole box, every decal is a sticker unfortunately.
LEGO could have easily done this set with just the A-Wing pilot but for collectors out there they tossed in a Han Solo AND an Admiral Ackbar!
You can’t repel a deal of that magnitude!
Today I built the LEGO A-Wing just for the Admiral Ackbar minifigure.

Day 790
People of the internet, weddings!
Ally’s sister got married this weekend and we had a blast celebrating. Ally was a big part in it all, the planning, the decorating, the crafting…and then she even topped it off with an amazing speech that blew everyone away. We ate, we danced and it couldn’t have been a better time.
To be honest there were two weddings that day and I got a chance to sneak out during picture time to spend an hour at my buddy’s place to watch him say his vows. James had done up his entire backyard and he walked down his lawn to marry Laura right there where we’ve spent time having campfires and playing with Carl his dog.
But back to Ally, doesn’t she look great in this shot?
Yesterday we went to Rhonda and Al’s wedding.

Day 788
People of the internet, getting political!
I’ve signed up to help out Maryam Monsef with her campaign for Peterborough mayor and couldn’t be more stoked. She’s a fabulous choice for any leadership position in this city and really hope to see her do well in the upcoming mayoral election.
Luckily my friend Kemi is taking part in helping out too and she put me on lawn sign duty this weekend. I’ve put out five so far and have about twenty more to do on Sunday. Feels really cool to be getting involved and I’ll be keeping the blog posted on Maryam’s progress from time to time.
Today I put out my Maryam Monsef lawn sign.

Day 788
People of the internet, running the dog.
I think it’s impossible to wear this dog out! I took Bender for a 5K run around Little Lake today and he still had some gas in the tank for a swim halfway through as well!
He was pretty well behaved for being a big puppy with the small exception of squirrels. When he sees one you better be holding on tight.

Day 785
People of the internet, more dog.
Bender and Claire are fitting right in, she’s got her schedule down and is biking to work and Bender is getting comfortable in the house. He’s an awesome dog to take for a walk or run, he’ll literally chase a ball until he can barely bring it back to you.
So that’s what I do, just chuck the ball at the park and he will run for it until my arm gets too tired to throw it any further.
Today I ran Bender at the park.

People of the internet, the Lakefield Market!
Ally and I hit it up this morning, she found herself some nice Lady Diana and Prince Charles memorabilia, including a plate and a sweet pair of salt and pepper shakers.
Me on the other hand, I spotted a rusted Battlestar Galactica lunch tin and a little porcelin E.T. figure from 1986.
Today we went to the Lakefield Market.

People of the internet, the heat!
Finally, it feels like summer. After work I went over to Ally’s to pick her up before an evening shift and we went for a quick swim at the park to cool down a bit.
Then it proceeded to rain, as usual. Go running…rains. Go biking…rains. Go outside at all…rains.
Today we went swimming in the rain.

Day 779
People of the internet, a nice picture.
Claire and I took Bender for a walk and a quick swim up by the Peterborough Lift Lock and I grabbed a few pictures while the sun was slowly setting. Really liked how the shadows on the locks contrast with the light beaming through the flag on this one.
Bender got right soaked in canal water and now stinks. He’s been ran, walked and swam and still has a bit of energy left.
Today I snapped a cool picture up by the Peterborough Lift Lock.
