better save the women and children first

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Why do you need so save the women and ask?

Well, it's tall ships weekend in BC and that means pirates. Not a lot of pirates, but just enough. Actually the town is crawling with people, way too many people. My work this weekend will consist of 80 hours of work squeezed into 50 hours of time squeezed into 4 days. On top of that- I'm running the Pirates on the Run 5k tomorrow morning at 8 AM. This will be more of a jog. Racing it doesn't fit my long term goals or fit the weekend.

Which leads into this- I'm starting to feel my inner VAN HALEN (see title). See, I don't need some 132 beats a minute pop dance tune for working out. Right now I'll take some old school rock with lots of V-8 power and some David Lee Roth attitude.

Rock on my fellow Sparkers!!

Oh, BTW- if you don't like Van Halen- I suggest you try Thunderstruck by AC/DC.

    Hope that the pirates leave soon and life returns to normal. Looking forward to hearing about your race. Agree with Andrea - Back in Black!

    Panama is my favorite. But you may want to go with AC/DC's Back in Black for the Pirate run!

Here's to hoping your timbers don't shiver. Have fun!!
