Where was I...

 Right so, it's been a while, but I am back to it. I haven't posted in almost 8 months, but... from here out... (I have said that before). I own my very own computer now so it should be easier for me to keep a more consistent stream of posts, but I'm not making any promises.

 So much has happened; Olympics. What can you really say about it, it was an extraordinary experience and obviously a highlight of my life. Things couldn't have went better and I accomplished all I wanted to, onward now to Rio! I partied hard for a little bit after the Games and got back to training in September. Foot Injury.

October 4th moved to Victoria for the winter (foot injury got better). Had a solid month of training with Quin Ferguson (my new Nate). Knee Injury. Home to Halifax for part of December, I trained with my club Halifast Athletics while I was home. Running and hanging out with the young athletes fired me up for training again. Christmas with my sister and her family in Calgary, all that needs to be said is my nephews are cute, Calgary is bitterly cold and I can think of a better "sport" to drop from the Olympics then wrestling.

Back to Victoria for January, this time with my coach Heather for a month of training along with the UVic Team. The Vikes were an awesome group to train with, they made me feel at home and comfortable from day one. The old knees were still acting up so we bailed on any indoor races and February 1st made the trip to Phoenix, where I have been since.

Training has been great since, I think my arthritic knees didn't like the damp Victoria climate. I am officially a snowbird. Quin and Nate are here so it's like I have two Nates. Flagstaff begins in 15 days.

So that's the 8 months. Nothing dramatic, run, eat, sleep, repeat.
