Football hangover

Posted in sports

It was so weird being north of the 49′ parallel this year instead of being stateside for American Thanksgiving, though I do have to say being home to and be able to watch the Vainer Cup and Grey Cup (Canada Football League) which was held in Vancouver this year was amazing. Not because our local team won the game but just being able to watch more of the game then what seeing 3 seconds of one of the US channels mentioning that the Grey Cup was happening and only showing the mounties carrying in instead of who was playing and or the score. Bleh.

It’s been a week since the game and people are still buzzing about it. :hyper2:

Bobsleigh Talent Camp

Posted in Dragon Boat, Fitness, sports Tagged , ,

Richmond Oval

The last time I ventured to the Oval was for a paddling clinic before the 2010 Olympics and on Sunday I was given a chance to take part in a BC bobsleigh/skeleton talent camp.

Right around the mid paddling season point, I came up with this goal/fitness challenge of taking part in a talent camp, if I made it sweet if not I was able to make it that far. The original goal was to enter one next year but after a few bobsledders I know egged me on to do it this year. Do have to say that it was a great learning curve and now I know what I need to work which would also help with my paddling.

It was really nice to be part of a small group of 8 (12 people signed up though) people instead of a huge group of 30+, this way you aren’t waiting around to long. Being the only female who took part did suck as I wasn’t really able to gauge myself against my own gender and all the guys having true track backgrounds which also didn’t help but at least they didn’t laugh at me.

Now the waiting game begins as I wait for my results.

How was your long weekend?
