Vacation wraps up today

or really tomorrow afternoon when I go back.

Highlights? Well, having some down time, some out of the office time was good for the soul. Got to think a lot about positivity, and the influences it can have on your life. Someone pointed out that in the last six months or so I have been a more positive individual since I am now I am looking out for number one. Speaking of number one. Since I started to pay attention to what goes in the body and started excercising, I have lost 10 lbs. That's since the beginning of July. And as of today today's ride, I willhave biked over 600km. 135km alone in the last 5 days.

It was quite hot when I rode yesterday. Headwinds from the north west were dogging me the whole way( Pond Mills to Wilton Grove, south on Wellington past Regina Mundi, West on Scotland, South on White Oaks, West on Glanworth and eventually north on Wonderland to Southdale and then up the south side of Snake Hill on Col. Talbot - and then back home via the bike path) . And I fell off the bike too. On Southdale west of Wonderland there is a new wide bike path. Its on the other side of a ditch. I thought - why I don't know - that I could go through the ditch. Nope. Wheel swung around and that = Handlebar end in the stomach. Nice loonie sized whack and a few scrapes. Got back on, but I was running low on juice. I had to convince myself to keep going up to snake hill from the south. It almost did me in.- but I did it ! :) Wonderland (south of Southdale) is nice to ride on with wide shoulders for the most part. The rolling hills on Scotland and White Oak were nice too. 47.6 km and some pink arms.

So, I rode over 135km on my vacation and two goals I had set for myself for the summer were met: I rode up Snake hill from the North side ( river side), did the long hill on Commissioners going West from Commish and Hamilton to Highbury. And I did a last long ride for August (the one I just described). And I can't forget Double-A-Ron's Wedding in St. T on Saturday. Nice ceremony - for those who went. :) And I also found out I am one of the fastest guns in all of St. T. ;P
