|Ho, ho ... I forget the last line...|
In a turn to the surreal, I discovered by turns that I was standing beside the Mayor of Burlington and my Ward Councellor for the part of the city in which I live. I was ok with that, as I voted for both men. In a moment of pride, the Mayor recognized my name a face and said "Oh, right, you're from the rugby club!", and then shook my hand.
I'm pretty sure I pooped my Santa suit at that moment.
We chatted for a bit, Rick telling some funny jokes and people around us made reference to this funny video from Rick Mercer:
I made a mental note to watch it later. It took me a while to find it, but man .... that Rick Mercer. I chatted with my Ward Councellor for a while. A kid fell down in front of me and I helped him up, and so lost a bit of pace there, too. Meh, I was just glad to get out on a run - I haven't done much of that as of late. I'll get to it this week coming up.
After the race, I got to the Dickens for steak and eggs. Oh, man that was good. Then got home, played with my kids and did some rolling and stretching in my gym. That, my friends was a full day.
|I didn't see the Mayor, do YOU see him? He's there, somewhere...|
Got this done four rounds with my two year old chasing me around:
20 bw squats (sorry, I can't trust him with me lifting a bar in the same room yet)
20 feet up push ups
15 hanging knee tucks
10 TRX body rows.
Not a lot of equipment, a relatively high safety factor and a great deal of chasing my son around between sets and reps.
After that, went to my brother's house warming party. Nice place. I pointed to this blog to help him set up a true Man Cave.... :)
