I guess it was in University that I started counting May as part of "summer".... and at some point I added September because of its good weather...
With this highly debatable accounting (and a decent tolerance for rain) "Summer" consists of:
I know that all of you Southern Californians may not need to inventory your weekends this way - for they are all sunny and beautiful... but for us Canadians the sun is our friend for only a few months each year.
These weekends go so fast... I am already stressed about misusing them!
So far, and this is all subject to change, MY 22 weekends will feature:
- 3 triathlons
- 3 running races
- 3 cycling events
- 5 out-of-town events
- 4 events within a 2 hour drive
I also want to fit in:
- 1 or 2 camping with the kids
- 1 or 2 races with the kids (5 Peaks)
- All or most of Mattias' baseball games and Otters swim meets
- Lots of swimming with Aia so she can go into Otters next fall/winter
It's going to be busy!
What about your 22? What have you got on tap?
On a side note.... Summer makes me think about driving to races in my van, camping with kids and enjoying the weather. Please enjoy some van shots from last summer. P.S. I know I am a nerd about my van - can't help it...
Though I love my van, I can't help but dream about ones like this:
