so, i was in edmonton this past weekend. and, as much as it was a fantastic weekend, it feels good to be home. I got back into vancouver yesterday at about 4:45, and went directly to my friend Audrey's, where i then went out for an hour run, and then finished the night with a potluck dinner... it was pouring rain. i got soaking wet. but, there was a strange feeling of being "home." so, here comes the rain again. and, i guess it is not going anywhere until at least march. ;)
hopefully though, on sunday for the 1/2 marathon, the sun will come out for at least a while.
some photos from the weekend. briefly, i got to edmonton, drove directly to Calgary, slept over night, and then went caving the next day in Canmore. not going to lie. I am more of an "above ground" adventurer, but the girls (my niece Makayla, and her "foster sister" [for lack of a better word]) had a great time, experiencing things that totally expanded comfort levels. Then, eventually went back to edmonton, and celebrated makayla's 13th birthday. Saw 2 friends, my sister, and my mum. it was go go go. but, nice to wake up to fresh snow on tuesday morning.
me: being silly.
me, and a life long friend, Christopher Gillen. We have known each other since birth, but only get to see eachother once in a blue moon.
