Well its all right, riding around in the breeze

August 8, 2007

I had a random drug test last night at my house.  Not sure if the CCES got the memo, but I’m not going to worlds.  The last time I had a drug test at home was right before Commonwealths and this one fell right before worlds.  The annoying part was that I was on an hour long run and had to take a (edit) pee 45 minutes into it.  When I got back home and saw the CCES guy I didn’t have to go at all.  Two litres of water later I was good to go!

CBC radio correspondent Mihira Lakshman was just over doing a little interview with me about Worlds.  He’s doing a piece on the World Championships that will air in the coming weeks and wanted my perspective on coming so close to AC’s standards. It should be pretty interesting as he interviewed a bunch of athletes at Nationals and Martin Goulet.  Mihira knows track well and I expect the piece will be well done, minus my blabbering.

I’ve started a blog on Flotrack as well.  The blog should come out tomorrow and I will have an introductory blog and a 2007 recap for new readers to get caught up with me.  After that this blog and Flotrack will have the same content.  I’m not sure what the layout on flotrack is yet but hopefully I’ll be able to upload pics there too.

If I was going to worlds I’d be able to adorn my blog with more photos like this.

    “Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze,
    but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.”

    Your post’s title reminded me of this movie quote.

    Reid,
    As I am sure you are aware, a portion of your reading auidence are female. As such, I feel it is reasonable for me to recommend you avoid use of such terms as “piss.” It’s gross. Furthermore, I read promise in your last entry of more gossip. Perhaps our ideas of what constitutes gossip diverge, however, please accept this as my formal request for more (if any) gossip.
    Thank-you.
