So of course i couldnt just sit there and ‘walk’ the sun run. i ran about 5km with john then he picked up the pace – since i knew he could totally rock it and get a great time – leaving his poor sick wife in his dust :p he ended up coming in under and hour and i was just over. i wasnt my best time but seeing as how i’ve got this sickness going on i think it’s excusable. it was all in all a GREAT morning. we met up inside BC Place at a pre-determined meetup spot and checked out times in the paper this morning. we even caught some coverage on Shaw last night and strained to spot ourselves coming through the finish. next year, we’ve decided to wear Iowa/Hawkeye colours – then we can’t be missed.
This weekend was full of Sun and we got great use out of the city. The concert Friday night was awesome. I’ll have some Mates of State pics up later. They’re so freakin talented and the music is really great – can’t believe there’s only two of them up on stage – AND they’re totally DIY, setting up everything and taking it down. The only bad part about the night was that the show ran long so the club let in the regular friday night ‘club crowd’ at 10pm (even though the show wasn’t over til 1030) so you had horrible bopper/drunk/immature granville street club goer kids coming in and watching the end of the concert we were all really enjoying. i was elbowed and i swear a dude was clapping (in mocking fashion) so close to my head … i was about to drop kick him.
We discovered a few more shows of interest are coming up as well. The Secret Machines will be playing Richards on Richards AND the International Noise Conspiracy will be playing the Plaza club – I think it would be pretty funny if the club pulled the same stunt during the INOC show… mmm bopper clubber kids + socialist rock … hilarity ensues.
