I love holidays in December and yes, I love Christmas music. I know.... an atheist that loves Christmas music. Sue me. Here's a list of some of my favourite Christmas/Holiday music. These are my must listen to songs every year.
Do They Know It’s Christmas Time - Band Aid
Twelve Days of Christmas - Bob & Doug McKenzie

Didn’t really have bad nerves for this race, I usually do. I got a good sleep on the Friday night and woke up around 9am on Saturday. Had my coffee & bagel in the morning & my mother picked me up around 11am, then we were off to Brampton to pick up Irina & her son.

I just finished a 2:45 training run and I'm quite pleased with my distance. I was able to run over 28km in that time. It got me thinking about my marathon training times from 2011 & 2010. I decided to take a look.

Woke up around 5:20. Had a banana, threw on contacts, grabbed my gear & met my friends Irina & Zindine at Tim Hortons at 6am. Ordered an extra small coffee, cinnamon raisin bagel & some peanut butter packets. Drank 1/4 of the coffee (that's typical for me the day of the race), couldn't finish the bagel, left about a bite size left.

1 week until the Ironman 70.3 Muskoka race! It’s almost here. It’s been a fantastic summer for training. Weather has been good most days & I haven’t missed any of my workouts due to the weather.

4:00 wake up, hit the snooze button once, but didn't feel too bad. Started the water for the coffee. Did number 1 a few times and a number 2 (yes, I talk about this in the report. Live with it.). Also had a few sips of water before my mom came to get me. No problems getting into the vehicle (I wasn't sure how this would go since we have some "construction" going on outside the house & I was forced to use the side door for the bike. I was a little worried there would be problems, but it was all good). Traffic was light getting there and there was no issues.

Tried to get to bed early, probably got to bed just after 10:30pm. Didn't take long for me to fall asleep though, but of course I was up at 12:30, 1:30 to go to the bathroom. At 4:30 I woke up again, but just laid there until I fell back asleep. Woke up around 5:30 and left the hotel around 6:15 & went to Tim Hortons. Got to Binbrook with lots of time to fiddle around. I found my bib # & then racked the bike. I got my mom to take the bag back to the car & realized with only 10 minutes to go that I left my goggles, socks & Pam in it. Ugh, next time just keep it close.

Woke up at 6:08 & dressed in my running clothes, went to get coffee at Tim Horton's but they were closed. :( Came back home & got gear together & sipped on some water & ate 1/2 a banana.
My mom ended up showing up 10 min too early & I ended up forgetting sun lotion. Oops.
Stopped at a TH to get a small coffee & bagel. Ate 1/2 the bagel & drank 1/2 the coffee. Got dropped off close to the start so didn't walk as far as I was expecting.

My department that I work in has a monthly meeting and one individual must show a photo (which they must be in or have taken) or discuss their favourite movie or book. I chose to show a very old photo of myself.
This was me in December 2002. I was about 175lbs in this photo and had lost about 5 lbs from my peak. The 2nd photo is from last years first triathlon. Amazing what exercise can do.
