“There is a season for everything, a time for every purpose under heaven”
This was a quote that my JC teacher wrote to me and one that I can look to for the wisdom. It is a biblical quote but I didn’t know it at that time. I was dating someone I shouldn’t have dated and trying to piece his life together while he as crumbling mine.
Fast forward 7 years to today, I am building my future with someone who is worth my time and season. Both of us have our own story of those before who weren’t at the right time nor the right season. I’m glad we met Joseph!
Can’t help but think that God had a hand in this.
Calling me an athlete is a little hyperbolic but yay for badge. Managed to get to the end of the route for the loop back but my pace is nowhere face enough to pass the IPPT. A lot could be down to my walking pace but if I take bigger strides, I could risk shin splits. RunKeeper stats after the fold. That’s end of week #2.
So it’s been about one and a half week since I’ve been back and I thought it’s as good a time as any to start jogging. I’m not sure if I’m gotten heavier (note to self: sort this out) or I’ve just not been using ’em ankles in a while but half way through my route, my ankles start to hurt like sons of mothers.
Thinking it’s unwise to risk snapping my ankles, I walked a fair bit back before covering the last sixth of the journey in a jog. The ankles definitely need some strengthening but at least it is not the usual shin splints, so this is definitely a good start.
Caught Premium Rush (among others) on the flight back, it’s like a love letter to this whole bike courier community. I find it kinda intriguing since I cycled in Montreal but I doubt I’d ever cycle like that.
Similarly, Wreck-It Ralph is this love letter to the whole gaming community. The awesome girlfriend fed me and brought me to catch the show. I wonder if Tiny Tina from Borderlands 2 would serve the same effect if she’s not quite over the top but more like Vanellope in Ralph. Then again Anthony Birch is way more talented than I ever was at age 24, so props to him still.
The weather is behaving in the most absurdly crazy sort of way.
