Launching my LiveSTRONG year


Had a wonderful ride today: 4ok out along jericho and locarno beaches, up the hill past spanish banks, through UBC to SW Marine Drive and back.  A solitary ride that had me smiling almost the whole time despite the chill.

I’m now almost 2 years post chemo and have resolved to make this my “LiveSTRONG” year.  For me, this means that whatever I am doing, to do it with enthusiasm.  To dedicate myself to being better than ever.  To supporting Team Give’r to raise over $50,000 for Cancer Research.  We had a great day, preparing our meals and enjoying eachother’s company.  I made a savoury Miso Noodle Soup.  Myrna made a great Potato fry-up for breakfast and a fun chicken thigh thing from what we had in the fridge.

I’m enthusiastic about this year.  I’ll track my progress towards the big goal of dropping 25 pounds in 6 months and delivering a personal best for the 10k at the Turkey trot.
