Since I started keeping track of my biking, I have ridden 1432 km.
I finished the virtual Camino de Santiago in Spain.
Then I biked the Great Ocean Road in Australia, then the Alps to Ocean in New Zealand.
Now I am doing the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia.
At the same time, I am walking the Ring of Kerry in Ireland.
The app is really good for keeping track of everything.
I will have to take a couple photos of my medals when I hang them up!
So, the last 10 years or so, I have wanted to do the Camino de Santiago. Not walking though. I would rather bike it.
Time, money and fitness level at the moment would prevent me from doing it but I saw The Conqueror Event Series and thought I would try the Camino virtually.
So, today I sign up.
I downloaded the apps and I am ready to start tomorrow.
If you are interested: it is HERE.
There are other Challenges: Hadrian's Wall, Inca Trail, English Channel, Alps to Ocean, Great Ocean Road, Grand Canyon, Length of the UK, Route 66, The Appalachian Trail.
It looks like I picked one of the longer ones!
I start in virtual Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.
June 28 was my 54th birthday. It was a good day. I got a wonderful card and video from my daughter.
My Guy bought me a bearded dragon. I have wanted one for a while now.
I went to see Crash Test Dummies in January! This time, I went by self. Nothing like sitting enjoying the music!
On August 18, my cousin, my daughter and myself went to see P!nk in Toronto.
It was a GREAT concert.
This was originally scheduled for May but was postponed because of a throat infection. It was well worth the wait.
It was awesome.
Thank you P!nk for a wonderful show!!
My dad died less than a week before I turned 13.
40 years ago.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him. He was truly a nice person. I try to make him proud every day. Some days that is harder than others.
On Dec 25, my daughter turned 24.
We had a good Christmas Day, although I was busy cooking for 16 people!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!!!
Today was a BUSY day!
I did errands and grocery shopping early in the morning. Then I spent the better part of the day in the kitchen- cooking. I made homemade dog food (ground beef, peppers, spinach, broccoli and a few blueberries) and liver dog treats. That went into our brand new freezer!
I cut up a huge amount of vegetables for the week: celery, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, peppers. I roasted potatoes and cauliflower and made two loaves of meatloaf- which I put into containers for the freezer for a few dinners over the week.
