Closing down Wapiti Music Festival is Sherman Downey and our last Wapiti feature. Today is the day where we all cram into the Annex duck pond park and listen to some awesome tunes, eat awesome street food and hula hoop like it’s 1999. See you out there, Fernie!

Wapiti Music Festival Schedule Released

Wapiti Music Festival - Schedule - Fernie Music In The Park

The schedule is alive!
Now’s the time to make your own Wapiti schedule (mostly for those who have kids that still nap). Rod and I will be tag teaming here and there so the kids can get a break, eat properly, nap and we’ll be at the festival for the bands we don’t want to miss.
I also like to take a picture of the schedule and use it as my ‘lock screen’ for easy access. Brilliant.
Tonight, Hark Raving Sirens and The Steadies are playing at the The Arts Station for a free downtown concert. There’s so much to enjoy this weekend because on Sunday the Bibbity Boppity Boo Children’s Festival and market is at Rotary Park. A great time for all – especially if you like balloons and bubbles.

Confessions Of A Lazy Person : I’m Still Running

Annex Park Trails Ponds and Dog Park in Fernie BC

I haven’t mentioned my running in a while and I was even asked recently if I am still running. I am! I haven’t stopped, other than that one time we went away for 11 days. Other than that, I’m still running every other day and I love it and hate it at the same time. Here’s why:

1. I’m not a beautiful runner. I see runners out there yogging away and looking so majestic at the same time. I’m huffing and puffing and my saliva is just bursting out of my mouth involuntarily and I’d rather not see anyone when I feel like my lungs are about to collapse or my calves are about to burst. Do I need a be a beautiful runner? No. I don’t. Does it stop me from going out and running anyways? No. It’s just something I observed.

2. I am ill prepared for the heat. I still don’t have proper shorts for running during a heatwave and last night I discovered why people, generally, don’t run in jean shorts. My inner thighs were chaffing like mad! By the time I was done my 20 minute run I had to tear those shorts off and let my legs breathe. I’ll still do it again because I also felt a little like a rock star runner and I didn’t mind it. Fashion over function, right? Maybe I’ll wear high heels, too.

3. It’s hard work. It’s a good thing I don’t run longer than 30 minutes (and that includes my warm up and cool down) or else I would probably not do it anymore. It’s a quick exercise but it also requires stretching and showering and all the other stuff that comes with increasing your heart rate. Ugh.

4. The after glow. One of two things that keep me going is the glow in my face after a run…I mean, once the redness in my face has faded a bit…then there’s this really nice healthy glow. I like that.

5. I feel good. It feels great to make your body work a bit harder and to see how you’ve progressed. I can ALMOST run all the way around the annex park loop. That’s amazing considering I could barely run for 60 seconds when I started. I’m patting my back right now.
