Sunday. Get after it.

Posted: October 21, 2012 by bbodnarchuk in Uncategorized

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.

http://alanwatts.com/

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!

Around the Bay Road Race

Posted: October 27, 2010 by piraterunner in Uncategorized

Well I did it! I signed up for the oldest road race in North America. Can you believe it is older than the Boston Marathon? It is a 30km race around Hamilton harbour on March 27th. Hmmmm, I think this would make an excellent birthday present for Sarah Mr. Bodnarchuk! So yes March in Ontario can be a wee bit unpredictable but hell so is Florida in January!

Oh, what is that you asked? Is that snow, hail and rain covering you in sub-zero temperature in the Sunshine State? Well yes, yes it is. The difference with this race is I will believe the weatherman when he tells me I will freeze my buns off if I attempt to run only in a thin lululemon hoodie and tights. A big thanks to Aunt Deb who was kind enough to give me her Dollar Store  gloves! So Cathy who just did a fabulous job on the Detroit Half Marathon will be running the Around the Bay. Cathy hopefully will start blogging about her journey too. I have no idea where to start with the training for this one. The last 10km are supposedly crazy rolling hills. I will keep you posted! TI
