i didn't do one last year, but i've decided to train again for this. nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment when you finish that race, at least for me -- almost similar to the natural high that i feel after a really good performance. it's certainly a big commitment, and it will be worth it, but sometimes when you're doing the training, it doesn't feel like it (especially when it's raining out). but i guess that's why the two disciplines are similar. it's all about the work that you put into it, the process and the time it takes to prepare yourself so that you can truly experience that feeling that only comes once in a while.

today was a beautiful day to be out there running along the seawall.

oh and on my way, i saw 'ben' again, walking around, with headphones on. does anyone know why he's in vancouver?
