Tuesday morning I woke up to my phone ringing at 4:50 am, with work telling me I needed to fly to Moncton, NB in order to work a flight the next day. I had to get all dressed up in my uniform just to sit in a seat allllll the way to Moncton. When I got there, I was definitely in need of some activity! I changed went down to the hotel gym right away. Luckily, there were a few TVs in there, so I biked and ran my way through the women's boarder cross and watched Canada get the first ever gold medal in that sport! I had so much fun and actually cheered in the packed gym when we won! Other people were watching too, so it wasn't too out of place. I watched some more Olympics that night, and then fell asleep with the TV on!
Yesterday I had the entire day in Toronto, so I spent it at Matt's parents house. I had such a nice time seeing them (since it had been August since the last time I saw them) and his brothers. I had almost every minute scheduled and didn't get to watch the hockey game, but I got some updates via text message and we caught a few minutes of it on TV when we were picking up his brother from hockey practice. I also went to an AMAZING gluten free restaurant with his mum and grandma. The food was out of this world delicious. The bread was light and fluffy (not usually something that goes hand in hand with gluten free), and they had a great variety of food. I wish we had a restaurant like that here! I got to fill them in on all things wedding and we chatted about the shower coming up in April. good times. When I finally got back to my hotel I caught the last 5 minutes of the hockey, and our two medals in bobsleigh! What a great day for Canada. I'm just so proud of our athletes.
I've got a run scheduled for today, but my head is currently pounding, so I'll pop some advil and see what happens. Running and headaches don't really mix too well, so I'll have to wait and see if it goes away.
I wish the time would go by slower; I'm not ready for the Olympics to be over!!
