Running around, staying out all night, taking it all instead of taking one bite

November 14, 2011

That may have been my unhealthiest weekend in memory, and since I didn’t drink too much I can safely use the word memory.  In terms of hours slept, quality of food, and some beers (or is the plural form just “beer”?) I was not living like an elite athlete.   I did run 28km on Saturday morning so I wasn’t completely wasting space…

The reason for the road trip to Quebec City was to watch the Guelph Gryphons go for their 6th and 7th straight CIS XC team titles.  They did not disappoint as the Women won their 7th title in a row and had 7 All-Canadians (top 14)!  The men scored 20 points, which is the lowest point total since the 1960’s.  Gen Lalonde and Andrew Nixon also won the individual titles for the Gryphs.  Needless to say there was good reason to celebrate that night.

We rented a mini-van and started the trip with Taylor Milne, Chris Winter, Rachel Cliff, Rachel Aubry and Kim Richardson.  On the drive to Quebec we stopped for gas and I saw Molson Dry cans with the #1 fingers printed on them.  For some reason when you’re on a road trip and you see stuff for sale in gas station stores they seem way more awesome.  Anyways, I’m glad I bought two because they deservedly went to Nixon and Gen.

It’s a good thing CIS is in London next year because that is one heck of a drive to Quebec City.

    You are always welcome to have a pit stop in Ottawa to break up the drive.
