In my job as a firefighter, I was fortunate to have helped save many people. But sadly lost many as well. Interesting fact is the most common last word most of them ever said to me was... "GOD".
On my journey around the world I stopped and saved countless more animals at the side of the road. I never passed by a hurt animal, sometimes they spent a few days travelling with me in the basket below. I remember each of them, likely because they were left at the side of the road helpless and dying, could not communicate their pain, and they somehow trusted I would not harm them, but care for them. They could never say a last word to me but if they could I knew what it likely would be. Hope you have never "figuratively" been left injured or dumped in life at the side of the road , because if you have, like me, then you know how an animal feels. God....never drive by Karma will follow!
Rainbow or lightning. Training time in Kitsilano pool again 2021 for the 2.4 mile swim. Free parking on Cornwall after 6, or in the rack with your bike. The five times weekly swims will reduce 5 minutes a month off your swim time.
Spending some quality Mothers Day time with mom below the Sylvia Hotel on her dedicated bench on Stanley Park Seawall. I miss you mom, but you're not missing anything down here lately!
Cycling a hundred kilometers is hard, but facing cancer is harder. The Tour de Cure presented by Wheaton Precious Metals is BC’s biggest cycling fundraiser, now with a new name.
Form a team in any community, start collecting donations and then hit the road on August 28th, 2021 to power cancer research throughout the province and save more lives.
Since Folk Fest is cancelled again, and Red Cross not going anywhere, my new one day a week volunteer job. Meals on two wheels. No close contact. Ride like the wind and never deliver a cold meal, or its on me! You leave a needy person or senior a meal at their door. Get exercise and help a good cause at the same time. My two favourite things. Makes one feel really good!
Ironman training swims will open for the training group again in less than 6 weeks in the best pool in Canada .
My world steepest street record in New Zealands Baldwin street stands. After another cyclists attempted the 35% grade, to beat my 3 minutes 49 seconds last week was unsuccessful. It is a brutal hill.
Seeing this cherry blossom in Kitsilano, is making my bike very excited about spring and the view from her new home
