Updates (again)

Seeing as I’ve been negligent once again with the blog, I’m writing another update post.

The exam: I passed! Yay!

Running: I ran the Kitchener Downtown Mudpuppy Chase (10K) at the beginning of the month and also the Ottawa Half Marathon last weekend. The weather was nice and sunny for both races – barely a cloud in sight!

Vacation! - Ryan and I took a week off work between Victoria Day weekend and Ottawa Race weekend. We went to Ottawa the first weekend for the end of the Tulip Festival, went to Alexandria Bay, NY for a few days where we stayed in a hotel room with a direct view of Boldt Castle on Heart Island.

We spent plenty of time admiring the river view while enjoying some beverages on our balcony. We spent one warm, sunny day on a Thousand Islands boat tour and exploring the castle and we got to eat our dinners on patios right on the water (dock and floating restaurant). It was great to get away for a while.
