May has been busy!! I had some time off but lots of travel prior. Thunder Bay, Sudbury were on the list - good trips but it can be tiring. It also tends to bugger up my training as I didn't have any free time.
Biggest news was I turned 50 on May 6. 50 freakin' years on the planet - how fast did that go?! My present to myself was a margarita machine. Love the margaritas! The machine works great. You can do other drinks in smoothy style and the ice crusher is awesome.
For my birthday I decided to do a workout that connected to the big 5-0. I first did a 5.0km run. The pic is the halfway point on Golf Club road.
Following the run I did a 50km ride around the escarpment. As you can tell by the sky the weather was great.
The margarita machine got a LOT of use. John was a good wingman and got Sheila home safely. Sheila - you loved the machine, eh?!
We have some great friends. We had a Christmas party where we mixed neighbours and friends. You wonder how it will go but Christmas was awesome and this birthday bash was exactly the same. Everyone had a blast and mingled well. I've got the empties to prove it - haha.
Finally a birthday cake. Funny but turning 50 doesn't mean a whole lot to me. I feel good. I love to have fun and keep active. I believe in the "use it or lose it" philosophy in life. You stop moving and you'll break down - it's as simple as that.
