Repost from 2020 I think...Day 9: Now I'm really tired.

I played this tournament again last weekend and it was again very fun, and very cold. But the team I played on won the whole tournament, finishing up with a nail biter down to the last second win by one goal.

Good morning Challengers. You may remember that I played in an outdoor hockey tournament this weekend at Dufferin Grove. There was a game Friday night and two games on Saturday. The really fun part was that I woke up with a cold on Saturday morning, and wasn't feeling much like playing hockey. Actually I felt like hiding under my duvet on the couch and watching Netflix. 
But then I remembered a little figure skater that Thom took skating lessons with last year telling the kids, "If you don't train when you don't feel well, how will you learn to compete when you don't feel well.?!"
Taking that to heart, a had a couple of Advils, dressed extra warm, and laced up. 
And I'm glad I did, because it was a really fun day, and I'm looking forward to spending most of tomorrow in my pajamas.
Until tomorrow
Have an outdoorsy day.

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
