I'm sitting here sweating....

Almost five days without internet access - screech!  It is scary how I depend on it.  My friend Donna only has internet on her phone.  Yesterday I quickly scanned emails on her office computer for 15 minutes but no time to blog. 

I am now at the University of Ottawa dorms - no air conditioning...and there is a heat wave...need I say more.  The sweat is dripping off me.  Sometimes cheaping out is a false economy if you can't sleep due to the heat...especially as I am due to walk a half marathon on Sunday....and forget finding a hotel room in this city...

Today Donna and I went to the Expo where I spent a bit of cash...new t-shirt, socks (I have a fetish but these were so cute with little Canadian flags on them..).  I got my race package but alas the marathon t-shirt does not fit me - too tight despite being a size large.  Sigh...they assume we are all tiny runners.  So I guess the goal is to lose 15 lbs at least by September so I can wear it to the next half marathon I do....

On the bright side I was able to get an ethernet card but had to give them my ID to keep to have it....so have internet access in my room. 

Tomorrow morning is the 3 km fun run then I plan to take in the Museum of Nature in the afternoon and the pasta party in the evening. 

I will recap my week in the next post.
