Ferda and I both had Friday off, which was really nice. We slept in, watched some tv and the movie Eagle Eye which I really liked. Also did some groceries and chores before I had to leave home around 6pm.
I participated the Cancer Society's Relay for Life which started at 7pm Friday night and went throughout the night until 7am Saturday morning. It was a very successful event. According to the website, more than $600,000 was raised in the three Ottawa events (Nepean, Stittsville, Orleans). Our team of six decided we should run the full 12 hours, and we did. Of the near 300 teams there, we placed 3rd in overall laps completed which was quite impressive. Somewhere around 325 laps. My share would likely be about 20 kms ran.
After the event was over, I went home and showered and grabbed my ultimate gear and headed to the CHEO BBQ ultimate tournament. Luckily our team had a bye for the first game so I could grab about an hours worth of sleep before playing. Our team did ok considering we were playing in the comp division. However, by the third game my knees were giving out and I had to call it quits. I just could no longer keep up with my mark and aggressive cuts just hurt too much. It was a really nice sunny day though and I'm glad I went. Ferda was there too volunteering throughout the day so she got to watch a number of our games. When I got home around 3 or 4pm I crashed pretty hard for the remainder of the night.
Sunday had me downtown for union business (for which I'm still the treasurer) for 9-3; we got a lot of stuff accomplished so it was a good day. We also had a nice lunch at Baton Rouge. The rest of Sunday evening had me at home, chilling out with Ferds.
My knees are feeling much better now, which is good because I will have an ulti game again tonight (providing the weather holds out). Not too excited to be back at work this morning, but I suppose I don't really have a choice. Peace out internet.
