Sunday’s around our place are pretty low key. I think that is truly the essence of what a Sunday is and should be, however I am always keen to mix in some physical exercise along with the sofa lounging with my wife.

Today I find myself sitting indoors watching some NFL football and not very motivated to do much more. Lacking motivation I decided to check back in on a pretty amazing link I came across the other day on Twitter.

Alan Watts is a new find for me, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. This Brit has published some incredible writings, and some of his audio clips you can find on his site are thought provoking and motivating.

I am intrigued to learn more about Mr Watts, and even more intrigued to drown myself in his literature.

It isn’t very often that I come across a piece of literature that speaks to me in so many ways, and at the moment as I am trying to make sense of what I am doing with my life and career, his words are proving to be very helpful.

If you’re looking to inspire your senses, check him out.

Enjoy your lazy Sunday and don’t forger to get after it!

What was I thinking!?!

Posted: November 23, 2010 by sarahbod in Uncategorized

Today was cold!!! -9 in Vancouver! I’m sure that’s a record. I’ve been living here for seven and a half years and I don’t think I’ve experienced cold like this before…here anyway. This is why I made the executive decision to run inside tonight on the treadmill. Which I hate!!! After 30 minutes of mundane running I threw in the towel (Or would have, if I had a towel to throw!)

Now I’ve just gotten off the phone with Brad, who is in Dubai, where it is has a high of 29 degrees all week and am thinking to myself….why oh why did I not go with him!?! We felt that it was too much for the flight. Seriously, isn’t 29 degrees in November priceless?!?

He will be attending a party tomorrow at Atlantis the Palms…wowie wow!!!  It looks incredible. Instead I am googling articles related to running in cold weather. I’ve found the following articles which may actually be helpful:

1.Cold weather running tips 2.Is Cold-Weather Running Bad For You?

I’ll leave you with a picture of the palms … which leaves me asking .. What was I thinking?!?! SB

Atlantis!?! Yes please!

The addiction continues…

I wish I could say that the addiction was to running, sadly it’s not. After another 5km run on my lunch on Wednesday I was unable to pass up a very generous offer from my boss on Thursday. Can you guess what it was? I’ll give you a hint…starts with egg nog … ends with latte. Yes, she offered to treat us to a starbucks “treat” I held the whip, which made me feel slightly better and only drank half of the grande goodness. Only due to the fact that it was ice cold after a serious session of scaling and root planing.

No running since then … but only because I wanted to spend some last moments of QT with my hubby who just left for Dubai tonight. He’s only gone for a week but I’m already missing his goofy mustache.

Brad and his fabulous mo.

Thankfully he’s only growing it for a few more weeks and has been raising money for prostate cancer while doing so. You can help him raise some mo-money by donating to the “distinguished dusters” It’s for a great cause that two of our family members beat this year! So, now I’m off to bed to sleep off this popcorn coma that I’ve put myself into. Maybe I’ll run tomorrow..depends on the weather. I’m still finding it hard to believe that Vancouver is getting snow!! We could have used more of this white stuff back in Feburary! SB

Lunchtime and Lattes.

It was easy to run today. I was feeling guilty about sleeping 12 hours last night!! Wow, that may just be a new record for me. That helped, as well as continuously chanting in my head while running … Gwyn-eth Pal-trow, Gwyn-eth Pal-trow. Seriously, did you see her legs at the CMA’s?!?

Apparently, she's country strong. Don't know what that means, but I want to be it.

I think I’m going to try to run a few days a week on my lunch hour. It allows me to do shorter runs and work on my speed. Today was my personal best 5km…28:40. It also forces me to eat what I’ve brought for lunch (which is usually healthy leftovers from whatever Brad has made the night before) and no time to consider a starbucks “treat.” Which is really going to help the waistline considering the egg nog lattes are here!!! SB

Joy to the World!!! Egg Nog lattes are here!!

It must be Voodoo witchcraft!!

I don’t know how she does it?!?! I spent my entire run today thinking about the New York Marathon in 2011. Last night Trish let me know that she had applied for the marathon, which is completely chosen by lottery. She also suggested that I do the same. I have always said that I have no interest in doing a full marathon…none at all!!!!! Somehow, some way … she manages to magically get my mind thinking that it may actually be a great idea! Much like she did with the Disneyland 1/2.

At what angle does this look like a great idea?!?!

I’m serious….the whole run. Which I was happy about. 10km in just under an hour, in the pouring rain. I thought about this marathon. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized it is the same weekend as the Immortal Tour/Cirque du Soliel that Brad and I just got tickets for!!! The New York Marathon happens every year! MJ and Cirque…once in a lifetime!!! Oh no, what to do. There are no guarantees I’ll even get in, but should I take the chance? In the words of “skinnyrunner” “It was magical!” Which makes the decision even harder!!! So, I’ll do what I always do. I’ll sleep on it. I’m really good at that!  SB


Happy Birthday to a mini pirate!!

Happy Birthday to Kayson who turned 3 yesterday!!!

Now that's one cute pirate!!!

No running today … tomorrow … 10km? SB

Just like riding a bike.

Confession: Today was my first time running in over a week! I finally got my lazy butt in gear and ventured out into the rain on my lunch hour. Finished 5km in 28:55. A nice short run to ease myself back into it. I swear it’s been the shorter days that I have made it hard for me to get out and run. When it’s dark my body thinks, bed!!!  Really though … who am I kidding …any time of day my body says, bed!!! So, I like sleeping … but, I also like running, which means I have to stop with the excuses and simply, run.

Much like this toddler ... I could sleep anywhere...anytime!

Well, I had better get back to work…I have fifteen minutes to fill my face. Brad’s homemade borscht and a hard boiled egg. The lunch of a true athlete…don’t ya think? SB
