What is with our weather?  It's so nice out these days.  I feel like we are in for a terrible surprise soon (in the form of a blizzard) but I'll take it while it's here!

Life is great here, with the exception of me working ALL THE TIME.  I know normal people are used to having only two days off a week, but I am not.  I've been working like a dog trying to make some cash, and I feel like a zombie.

My saving grace is that my next three pairings have Maui overnights.  I'll get a little rest and relaxation on the beach.  I'm also hoping to get some nice hot runs in around the island.  I just need to make sure I don't get lost.  I have the worst sense of direction and I've tried to run in Maui before and turned around because I was scared I wouldn't find my way back to the hotel.  Funny side note, I also signed up for some free yoga on the beach last year in Maui, and the man running it actually did something close to tai chi, and he was batshit crazy while telling us all about the history of china.  He kept saying "now I bet you're all wondering what I'm talking about and what I'm doing" and we would look at each other and I'm sure we were all thinking "we're actually wondering why this isn't yoga and who the hell you are".  Funny stuff.

Have a great week, and wish me luck.

once your schedule calms down a little, we should do a coffee (at my new favourite place, perhaps?!).

and i nearly laughed out loud reading that your yoga teacher was 'bat shit crazy' - hilarious!

I think you may have gotten your answer this morning...snow!! Gotta love Calgary!

By the way, I have to apologize for never getting back to you about spin classes. We spin at Crestmont Community Center on Tuesday nights. People start arriving at 6 pm and we are spinning by 6:30. You can most definitely drop in, just check out for info and so you can contact my coach regarding drop in. We won't be spinning the last Tuesday in March though.

Also check out Tri It's website as they have some drop in bike classes too.

Hope that helps!
