in the span of a lifetime....



There seems to be too many things to do 
and far too many sights too see....

in the span of a lifetime.




Had a wonderful (but it seems very short) visit to the USA with my girl.....
now I just came back home to grab my bike.

I'm off to the sunny Okanagan {in the next~door province of British Columbia}....a 10 hour drive away for my first ever Aquathon and another Olympic Distance Triathlon.

Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend, 
and you enjoy the wonderfulness of 
~the moments within a lifetime.~

Dawn, you are sure squeezing as much into your life as a dozen other "normal" people would. But, it is the only life you are going to get, so do everything you want while you can. Enjoy!

Dawn, you enjoy yourself as well, it seems you are working very hard this summer.

Welcome home and have a fantastic trip to BC, go kick some a_ _! You're amazing my friend, I'm looking forward to more fantastic shots from our neighbors.

There must be something in our Alberta air this year... I'm trying to get about 5 years worth of work squeezed into two short months, something like you're doing on that end... hmmm I wonder if they've added something to our water? lol

Allison said...

Good for you! Enjoy your weekend, Dawn!

Alan said...

That's why planes were invented, to allow us to see more places in less time. Isn't it silly to think that some people have an irrational fear of them:-)

I don't even know what an aquathon is , but I'm sure you'll achieve a PB. I don't know why, I can just feel it:-)

Out on the prairie said...

You are on the run,literally. It will be fun to hear how all of it goes.

Julie said...

No kidding. Whenever I think of all the places in the world I want to see, I also think - there are so many places still to see in the USA...how will I find the time???? I better come into some serious cash and soon...this might turn into a 24 hour a day job...exploring ALL of God's green Earth. I'm willing to take on the challenge, though ;-)

Farm Girl said...

You have had a really busy summer. I can't wait to hear about an aquathon. I have never heard of one of those.

As a citizen of a tiny little country I find it hard to get my head round the size of a country like Canada. Safe journey on your trip!

Well, pleased you're back and back to blogging too... I'm not sure what an Aquathon is, but it looks like this triathlon lark has you hooked! Good luck with the race...

bon bon said...

yes, wouldn't be great to just be able to travel the world, taking it all in? knowing you, you'd be running or swimming it though. i'd have drive along side you in an rv. ;o)

Mike said...

You are right. Life is too short to see and learn about all the amazing things out there.

Good luck at your races!
