Sept 1 - Photo a Day - Me, Today

Today begins a month of photos, inspired by Chantelle, author of the blog, Fat Mum Slim....

Me, Today
OK, so this is really me the day before yesterday, but it's close! :)

I am not an athlete... In fact, I'm more of a slug than I'd like to be.

However, I am a health nut (yes, I freely admit that). 

Moving my body not only makes me feel fully alive, but it also overrides my feelings of hypocricy when I sit on the couch talking about staying healthy.
And truly, I love my bike.

This trail (very similar to the Burke-Gilman in the Seattle area) runs throughout the National Capital Region (Ottawa, ON and surrounding areas), and it is glorious! Thursday, I rode from Bells Corners to Merivale/Meadowlands -- about an hour each direction -- to share time and a couple of beers with my gf, and fellow writer, Dana. It was only my fifth ride this summer, so needless to say, when I got home (after a lovely stretch) I passed out. :o) And a heavenly sleep it was.

If you live in Ottawa, I'm always on the lookout for bike-riding (or dog-walking) partners. And I'll do my best not to crash like I did on Tuesday. (oops!)

Have a grand Saturday!
