Almost no running last week. Or almost nothing: 45 miles. With almost no elevation. I spent the week in Montreal and had the opportunity to run over the Jacques Cartier bridge. Amazing view of the city.
I mostly worked on new projects (more on that later), drive my Prius for more than 1000 miles in less than a week.
On Saturday, I participated to a Gingerbread house contest. As some of us are very competitive, there was no way our team (Cabin Fever) would lose it. So, we put a lot of efforts and eventually won the contest. Of course, with the new Star Wars movie coming up, we included Han Solo and a Wookie.
The temperatures here in Pennsylvania are incredible and it would have been a crime for not going out on Sunday. I put my ass on the Laurel Highland Hiking trail to go from mile 0 to 8 with a total elevation of 4354 ft. Two years ago, it took me 4:10 to complete it. It took me 3:13 yesterday. Seems there is some improvement over time.
Life is like a game: you try to do your best and never know what will happen next. You have to be ready to lose everything without regret but also have unexpected good news. This is what makes it so exciting.
