These are a few of my Favorite Things

Advertisements

I’ve ben digging this blog that gives tips on Blogs..how to attract traffic, and what to post….

I’m ignoring most of it…this is a blog not a business…..this is just where I clear my head, and perhaps focus?

One suggestion is to create a list of favorite things….I could do that?

I’m guessing the suggestion means, products…I guess I could do that?…..

But my favorite things arn’t necessarily products…..well, maybe….but more about things, places, right?…..

I’m guesing not a sound of music thing…and maybe, listing favorite things may help give me focus on right?

’cause there’s a ton of things I like..and not like……things I like to do?…….

So what is my favorite thing, like, ever?…..This is going to take some thinking?

  1. How about walking along English Bay with a Americano, after breakfast at the Sylvia Hotel
2. My fave route from the Kinsmen Sport Centre….I haven’t done this for a while, but the trail between the Kinsmen and Emily Murphy Park, up Groat Road, up Victoria Park Road/100th ave to just past a car parkade, wherever that is, down that road to the Glenora Stairs and back to the Kinsmen…Haven’t done that for a while, but an easy 6K-ish….a relaxing run…and usually means the rest of the day’s gonna go good…possibly with a swim right after

3. swimming at the Kinsmen, or Hemingway Pool……our two 50 meter pool….the change rooms at Hemingway are crap, but I love the pool..the design is amazing, and its so cool either in the evening, or first thing in the morning as the sun rises…..it’s also home to the Coronation Triathlon…..and the KInsmen, because it always feels like home…it’s an active and inspiring place..

4. I know a lot of people hate the Running Room, but the St. Albert Running Room has become my home for 8 years….I feel comfortable inside those doors, and on the trails and paths outside those doors…..I like think we’re different from every other RRoom,we’re like that tiny corner store….we not huge, we’re small, and I have thought of putting up a hammock in the stock room….it’s not perfect, but it’s so relaxed, and a social hub, not a store..

5. My Bikes….they’re all getting on in years, but the Marin, the Cannondale and the Felt….they all make me feel 18 again……..nothing feels as good as a bike, ever…..they don’t have to be new or the latest or greatest…..but no mater the distance, they just feel soooooo good………and even just spinning, my comfort zone

6. Grande Cache……yeah, I haven’t been for a while, but, yeah, kind of like Jasper or Vancouver..whenever I drive into town, it feels just right…..I even like the drive up to GC…….Kelly’s Bathtub, Gregg Lake….yeah, GC isn’t as fancy as the Crows Nest Pass, or a lot of other places, but yeah……Death Race country

7. My crew(s) …yep, the old Callingwood Crew…and those that call St. Albert home…..and all the connections……friends….acquaintances….

8. Brooks…..yeah, kind of stupid, I don’t have a ‘these are the best ever’ shoe, but everything made by Brooks just seems to work the best….shoes, gear and tights!…Yeah tights, I will not wear something called running pants, I like stuff, even at my advanced age, that feels like a second skin…at least below the waist.

The shoes…the Ghost, Levitate, Adrenaline, Glycerin, Cascadia..thay all just fit well….sure I love my On Cloud Swifts, the various Hokas I’ve owned…..and it looks like I’ll be testing out something from Saucony soon…..but as a brand, Brooks..their track team, the Beasts…their environmentally friendly head office in Seattle, their recycled cardboard boxes…..I guess I just like the company…….so, yeah Brooks, one of those favorite things….

9. Coke and Snickers……yeah, I know, not healthfood, but my fave snack, comfort food, and well…….yeah, the best snack bar ever, and, well, the real thing, Coke is it….

10. the Beatles…..

lists are kinda stupid, but there it is…….I guess a kind of an all about me thing….chow
