Yeah! the Green Mile is on. oh man wait, this movie is actually sad as hell. Holy crap, I feel as though I may cry, yet at the same time that one guard is such an asshole that I just feel mad. This movie is causing me to experience to many emotions, I’m going to have a breakdown, I can’t watch it anymore, I’m changing the channel. Nice, Star Wars, this is better. Okay I’m centered, lets get this blog going.
Actually not to much going on this week so this will be a short little blog. Alright, once again if you don’t mind please glance to your right. Yep, the mighty New Balance is still rocking over there. You will also notice the PowerBar logo. Just wanna take the opportunity to say thanks to the folks at PB for all the support and such that they give to us here at the River, fine folks over there. Quick recipe for ya’ll. Grab a blender and add the following; one scoop chocolate PowerBar protein powder, some ice, some yogurt, spoon in some peanut butter, frozen banana and maybe a little milk. Blend that sucker up. It’s pretty much amazing. (This recipe is also approved by Dr. Stellingwerff to be an ideal recovery beverage.)
It has been officially announced that Reider, Gilly-boy and Myself will be racing the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, I believe that Oct 16th is shaping up to be a historic day for Canadian marathoning. If we get a few more fast Canucks out there then holy balls folks, it is going to be a battle, yeah a mudderfunking battle is brewing up! We have a long time until October, that is probably a good thing because oh me oh my folks, I just finished my first “real” week of training since the marathon and good god I have some work to do. It can be quite humbling out there on the roads with the boys sometimes. I don’t like getting hammered on workouts, but shit man, what can I do? Milne is just doing work, that guy is fast. Reider and Gilly are handing it to me pretty good also. I gotta get fit. The first thing I have to do is loose these man-boobs that I have grown. These boobs are heavy and not nearly as sexy as girl-boobs. Okay, step one to regaining fitness, de-boob. The Harry Rosen Spring Run-Off is 4weeks from today. I figure I can get fit enough to get out there and give it a go. It will be fun to race again, I love racing, it is so much better than training.
So any other runners out there read about or watch Yuki Kawauchi at the Tokyo Marathon? Does anyone else feel like a huge pussy after reading about and or watching this guy in action? I sure do, that guy is hard as hell. Unbelievable! Yuki Kawauchi is my new favourite runner, Steve Jones 2011. Kinda shows just how mental this sport is. That guy has learned how to suffer like a damn pro, it is very inspirational. I want to be able to suffer like that.
So besides some sweet road race action coming up this spring I am also looking forward to this: http://www.krazy-fest.com/ This festival is going to be effing’ amazing. I am finally going to get to see Chamberlain and By The Grace of God. Hot Water Music is playing as well. I pretty much have a boner just thinking about how much fun this is going to be. Running may be my wife, but music is my sexy little mistress. I think going to a good punk show with some buds may be one of the best things ever. I often run with an mp3 player. People say that real runners shouldn’t do that. I say that those people are stupid and they should shut up. umm…I’m going to bed.
