Another busy Thursday for me – but also another Thinking Out Loud Thursday, linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.
#1 National Capital XC Champs today!
Wish my team luck as we run in the NCSSAA XC Champs today – we will see if we make it to OFSAA. Our Senior Girls team is predicted to win 2nd place which means a ticket on the OFSAA Bus. We are going to the Collingwood area this year. Cross your fingers!
#2 NOVA SCOTIA ON MONDAY!!!!
Now that my flight details have been figured out – I can tell you why I’m going to Nova Scotia on Monday. I’m a Careers studies teacher – so I teach students all about post secondary school options, how to search for jobs and general discovery about who they are. I bring in the Canadian Forces each semester to show students another option for after high school. A few weeks ago, I was emailed asking if I wanted to travel to CFB Greenwood for a tour of the base and exposure to careers in the military with a focus on the Air Force. Of course I said yes! This is completely up my alley and I’m sure excited for my trip. I’m leaving Monday morning and will be in Nova Scotia until Thursday. We are staying on base and they have lots of activities planned for us. It should be very informative but also fun! Can’t Wait!
#3 Sandbanks Cottage
I never posted about the cottage we went to for Thanksgiving – BUT we stayed at a cottage owned by Sandbanks Provincial Park. It was a nice, small cottage right on the water. The cottage was way smaller than the one we went to at Balsam Lake, but the view/location could not be beat. It was also way better to be closer to a town that had a bit of everything. The cottage had one main room, a loft area with two single beds and a futon. The other place had 4 bedrooms which was a bit better for sleeping. The kitchen was basic with a small oven. It was stocked and had everything you could need. The dishwasher though sucked and made more of a mess on the dishes than actually cleaning the dishes.
#4 Ottawa Race Weekend!
I am going to do a completely separate post next week about my intentions for the 2016 racing season, but two races have already been decided: STWM and Ottawa Race Weekend. Ottawa Race Weekend will be a bit more fun this time around because I’ve been asked to be a part of Team Awesome. Very similar to being a STWM Digital Champion, I will help promote the race and detail my training. I kind of already do that anyways (I LOVE Ottawa Race Weekend!), but look forward to being part of the team and hopefully making some new running friends. I have decided to run the Half Marathon on Race Weekend. I am thinking I could smash the 2:00 barrier. I have lots to work on though, but that is for another post. However, if you want to be part of Team Awesome – stay tuned….there will be an opportunity to join!
#5 Target Online Store
So apparently we can buy Target in Canada again – online. They made a Canadian store on their website and now you can get your Target fix. However….
Part of the fun of having Target in Canada was actually GOING TO THE STORE. I miss Target – it was so close to my house, it was fun to browse through and despite what people think, it actually had good deals.
#6 please happen!
There are heavy rumours that Gilmore Girls might make some new episodes for Netflix! Apparently they will be about 3-4 episodes that are longer. Please happen! The only thing….no Richard Gilmore 🙁
Anywhoo – That is it for today. Time to get my Cross Country on!
