I'm A Lucky Lady!

My weekend started early this time! 10:25 am I called it a day at work, packed up and flew the coop! Now I have 9 days to look forward to that will include a few hikes, a bike ride or two, a picnic, a crib tournament (Ms M, you better get ready), and maybe a run, I say maybe! I'll be heading back to work when the Calgary Stampede is in full swing! That means another week of no work! I love it!

Speaking of Stampede! How cool is this! It's my Calgary Marathon Medal! It's a western belt buckle that I put on a belt. With that, my blue jeans, cowboy hat and boots...I'm ready for Stampede!Thumbs up to Garmin! I have thoroughly enjoyed both my Forerunner 305 and my 60 CSX. I am definitely getting my money's worth out of both units. They provide a wealth of information and much enjoyment on the running paths and hiking trails. I spent some time this afternoon on-line with a Garmin Support Representative going through some functions and capabilities of the 60 CSX. In the process, I accidentally erased my $85.00 Preloaded Topo Canada West Card that I just bought in May. UHG! Thank you to Garmin! They are sending me a new one for free and once it arrives my 60 CSX Topo will be up and running again.

Speaking of running! Well, it hasn't been happening! Why you ask? Cause I just don't feel like it!

Tomorrow I get to do something I have been wanting to do for a few years! Hike Crypt Lake! Here we go, thumbs up again, this time to Adventure Designer for lining up all the ducks to make this one happen! It's a long drive to Waterton in Southern Alberta so I have to be out my front door by 4:30 am to meet the others. We will even cross the border into the United States for a very short portion at the far south side of the hike.

So, it's easy to see why I'm A Lucky Lady!


  1. Cool belt buckle; and you can brag about how you earned it. Enjoy your break.

  2. Enjoy your time off, isn't great not having any guilt when you don't run. Now that is what it is all about! : )


I'm always curious to know what your comment might be!
