Today, I was off to run with my friend Florin. I had met Florin on the Calgary pathways in early June and we've run together, now and then, ever since. Back in June, he was the proud father of a 7 day old baby girl. Alexandra is now six months old, which made me realise that I've been running way too long. I arrived at Florin's place at 8.00am and we headed east along the Bow. I hadn't been this far east since Winter arrived, but the pathways were in good shape.

At 9.00am I got a call from Reporter Kevin with CTV. Kevin has interviewed me five times through out the year and has been a great supporter. As Florin and I headed back to Eau Claire Market, Kevin would keep popping up and taking footage of us running. It's funny how whenever Florin and I saw Kevin we would start to run faster.

Florin has a PhD in Psychology. When I first met him, I asked him if he thought I was nuts. He said no. Today, I again asked him if he thought I was nuts. He said no. His opinion is very important to me because on Friday I will be talking to CNN. Back in December 2009, there newscaster, Tony Harris, did the "Are you Nuts!" interview with me. I'm looking forward to chatting with CNN on Friday and setting the record straight.

How come if ants are always so busy they always get time to show up at picnics?

Baby Alexandra, 6 months old, donated her $100 Christmas toy money to Right To Play. Good girl.
