a cell phones a celly

December 19, 2007

Just got done an hour long run on the roads with very little pain.  I have to thank Margot Mountjoy, Brenda Scott-Thomas, Marcel Meresz and Lance Dawson for getting me back up and running.  We have a great medical support team for the National Endurance Centre here in Guelph.  I’m hoping by the end of the week I’ll be fully functional and start doing some tempo soon.  The treadmill is easier on the ankle than uneven surfaces (ie. snow) so I’ve used the tready and bike for the past few days. 

On Sunday night I was shovelling snow and clearing out the driveways of my neighbours after the plow came by.  As I was about to go back inside I realized my cell phone had fallen out of my front pocket of my sweatshirt.  I looked back at the road and the behemoth piles of snow and thought I’d be buying a new cell phone Monday morning.  My roommates were out shovelling too, so one of them was designated to calling my phone over and over again in hopes of hearing a ring.  I went over to the main pile that I worked on and was taking off an inch of snow at a time and putting it on the road… my other roommates we working on other piles.  Finally Sean heard a ring and dug into the pile and found it… big relief.  If you saw how wide these mounds of snow were you’d be impressed… instead you’re probably regretting having read this paragraph.

    Nice vid. I’ve been on the lookout for “Real Legends Never Die” this year.. hopefully in 2008.

    Last year I had a race at the Armory in Harlem and I did my warm-down run to 139th and back.
