Here are a couple of pictures from the summer trip Tressa and I took to California. The first one is of us on a Disneyland ride and the second is of the gorillas we saw at the zoo.
I am entering the half-marathon event in a few weeks in the Saskatoon Mogathon. This will be my first race at this distance. Over the last couple of weeks I have been doing my long runs with my friend Vince - who has ran some marathons - which has been a welcome way to livin up what can otherwise be a long, boring run.
I am happy to say that two nights ago I completed the 21.1km (13.1 mile) distance for the first time. Though it was a slow time - over 2:35 - it was great to accomplish the feat.
Here is one of my favourite songs over the summer. "Come to Light" by the Arkells. Enjoy.
I recently purchased a Google Chromebook. Chromebooks are different from traditional computers because they run on the Chrome Operating System (OS) and the central focus is the browser. Internet connectivity is thus quite important. Another distinction is that installing native apps (local programs) is not possible ( by default ). The hard drive and amount of memory are also much smaller then computers that do focus on native applications.
Tonight Boston and Montreal square off in the decisive game of their quarterfinal series. It has been a hard fought contest and Montreal has looked very good. Either team can win and should go on to the cup final. What it will come down to are a few key things...

TV On The Radio - Will Do ()
Really good song off of TV on the Radio's new album Nine Types of Light. I love the lyrics
...Your love makes a fool of you
You can't seem to understand
Our heart doesn't play by rules
And love has it's own demands
But I'll be there to take care of you
If ever you should decide
But you don't want to waste your life
In the middle of a lovesick lullaby
Anytime will do
Anytime will do...
