Thirsty Beaver and a Smile on My Face

“You are not the kind of person who sits around and talks about doing things. What’s the point? You’d rather be out there doing it, and leave the talking to someone else. No one ever achieved greatness by chatting about it. We salute high achievers with our Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale.”

The condensation is slowing beading down the side of the bottle, the malty flavour still lingering on my tongue. I’m closing out a near perfect weekend after just returning from a quick blast up and over Mount Doug, the beer to my left making the moment all the more enjoyable.

After a late night out with the boys on Friday, I paid my dues and then some the next morning as I was out for my biweekly trail run. Today though was all mine, and as I sped down Whittaker after summitting the mountain I couldn’t help but let the legs roll and notice a smile creep over my face.

Training:

Friday: day off (unscheduled)
Saturday: EZ 1:48:44
Sunday: hilly up-tempo 55:50
