Woah I’ve been gone for a while
Sorry ya’ll I just ran out of time to post there for a bit, super busy with life and work and then I went to Nova Scotia for a friend’s Wedding. Time for a little update today and then I’ll share the fun of my half marathon from this past Saturday in my next post, cause I know everyone is just dying to hear about it, so I tell myself.
Ok so September has been a very weird month. I have not been motivated to do anything. I’ve been feeling down in the dumps and just plain sad, often. I know exercise helps me when I’m like this, but it’s so hard to convince myself to do it. I did not train for the half marathon as much as I needed to, but I knew this time I also trained more so I wasn’t too worried.
I said I went to Nova Scotia for a friend’s wedding as well, which put a damper on training for a week, which was totally worth it, and I’ll show you why.
We went site seeing, got car sick driving the crazy windy lanes around Peggy’s Cove.
Ryan and I were “practicing” for our wedding… no not in this shot at Peggy’s Cove.
We also went to the “Ovens Caves” where you walk for about 45 minutes and check out 4 different caves where the water comes crashing in, it was very cool. One cave was even called “Thunder Cave”, can you believe it? yep, I can because I heard that cave and it sounded just like Thunder. Those folks got it right when they named it.
Se the feet in the part of the cave where you actually go in and look at the waves crashing? that was Jill, Jen and Travis. moments after I took this photo a MASSIVE wave came up over the rock they were standing on and splashed the hell out of Travis… it was awesome to hear them scream.
Oh does that sound morbid and weird? yeah a little but for real Ryan and I had a good laugh about them screaming. Ok this keeps sounding weirder and weirder so, new topic.
So we were busy site seeing, helping set up for the wedding and obviously having to many cocktails for me to train for my half marathon… next time I wont book a holiday a week before a big race! unless it’s like for a wedding or to somewhere cool like mexico, hawaii, or well maybe anywhere but here 🙂
I have never experienced humidity until going to Nova Scotia. We do get humid days in Alberta, but NOTHING like the day of the wedding. You can’t tell that my hair had been in tight ringlets just 2 hours before this picture. I’m just glad that the rain stopped for our friend’s wedding so they could hold it outside as planned!
That aint no garter
Obviously I knew Ryan would catch those. He has caught the garter at least half the weddings we have gone to so I knew he’d be all in for the ginch.
We had a great time in Nova Scotia, if you’ve thought about going there, just do it. now I’m home, settled and ready to get back to working out and blogging, check back tomorrow for my half marathon post!
