March 25th, 2007

Yesterday was a busy day.

 

I started the morning with an hour-long massage (sounds nice, but it was more therapeutic than relaxing). I just had my legs and hips worked on. Kara (Heights Massage Therapy) gave me some great stretches for my lower body.

 

The rain let up later in the afternoon so I was able to get a lot more skating in than I originally planned. I warmed up with my usual morning loop around False Creek. When I got back to my apartment I decided to continue along the water into Stanley Park. I wasn’t raining at this point, but the path was still wet and a bit slippery.

 

I went past the Lost Lagoon and through the Park on Causeway. By the time I had gone over the Lions Gate into North/West Van and back home again, I had covered roughly 30 km. I know I’ll be covering a lot more than this on a typical day, but 30 k isn’t bad considering everything else I had to do during the day.

 

After a quick dinner, Crystal and I headed up to the Buffalo Club. Halfway through the set, my buddies in the band, Like A Storm, called me up on stage and presented me with a check for $100 towards my cause! This was great exposure. There was between 300-400 people in the audience. I was also able to collect a few other cash donations from people at the bar.

 

The gig was fantastic, too. The guys played 6 new songs and really had the bar rockin. After they were done, there was a special guest appearance by the 80’s band Loverboy! All-in-all it was a great night.
