Besides my usual bike commute to work, I put in nearly two hours today taking residents for rides on this. It's a duet bike, made in Holland. The chair disconnects from the rear cycle part so I can pick up and deiver residents right from their rooms. 7sp Nexus IGH. For short rides I go around our courtyard (it's pretty big), long rides along various pathways around the facility (11acres) and longer still rides to and around a nearby lake.

I feel pretty blessed to be able to do it. The experience for the residents is a real pleasure to be part of

Got some money for selling a bike part and got Socks six cans of her favorite cat food (gravy man, she digs it), fed myself at a couple-three little stop along the way and checked out the thrift stores for Christmas ideas then stopped at the grocery store next door and bought a can of green beans (my favorite) and went home with two cents for an opinion.

That takes me all the way across the west side of town, over five miles round trip and away from the freeway.

Took a trip downtown (8 miles round trip) and decided to do a little sight seeing. Some of the paths that you obviously cannot drive on and being able to mobe as fast or as slow as I wanted to enjoy the city. Snagged a nice Nitro cold brew from a local skate shop and got offered to drop in on their mini-ramp (im too old). Was able to breathe in some fresh air and take a handful of cool iPhone pics of my ride along the river.

Sunday -- I ran the local Fun Run ... only 5 km but it was my fastest 5 km.

Temp started at about 10C and cooled off to about 8C with a "feels like" temp around 3C.


Fun Run Results:
Total Distance: 5.25km
Time: 36:11
Overall Place: 160/278
Gender Place: 66/153
Division Place: 8/20 ... division is age group + gender.

And I wasn't in the oldest age group, there were people in the 70-79 age group running/walking as well.

It rained, fairly heavily at times, while I was waiting to start, so a bunch of us were huddled in the building where they handed out the numbers. Then the sun came out and I jogged down to the start. The sun stayed out throughout the run and I discovered I was actually overdressed. Even though it was quite chilly, running + sunshine makes me very warm.

The last bit of the run was along a beach, on the sand, so that slowed me down a little bit ... but it was all right. And I was looking up along the edge to see Rowan, and there he was!

I've walked/ran 1021.91 km so far!

Lots of it has been utility walking ... but some has been training or for fun. Especially the running.

And this evening, Rowan and I did what a lot of people in our neighbourhood do ... we walked to the little local grocery store to pick up a few things.

It was nice to do that again ... and in daylight!! LOVE DST!!!
