Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Day 8 of the games…

And I’ve spent the last 4 days recovering from the first 4 days. I just don’t have it in me to keep up the Olympic pace for 17 days straight. We’re half way through the games and I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface. Favorites so far include watching the Opening Ceremonies at Publish lounge, watching and celebrating moguls gold in Yaletown, the axe capoeira winter Roda on Granville St – felt like a summer day. Also enjoyed impromptu dancing courtesy of the DJ’s showcasing as a part of ‘Made in Vancouver Yaletown Festival’.

Plan on stepping it up again this weekend. Stealing a note from the guys from the buried life I’ve compiled a list of the things I want to do before the Olympics are done. If you haven’t seen the show, each week they try to check off something from their ‘100 things to do before we die’ list. Here’s my Olympic version:

Take advantage of my free Lululemon/YYoga pass. I was so excited to get this but haven’t gone once yet.

Spend the day and night exploring the pavilions and fun on Granville Island. Atlantic Canada, Swiss house, and I want to take the new temporary : ( train to Granville Island.

Check out Canada’s North Pavilion – I’ve heard it’s great!

Check out one of the JetSet Crew Parties. They’ve been doing a great job attracting athletes to Canvas lounge. Would be fun to celebrate with them.

Get to the Ozone and Heineken house in Richmond.

Ziptrek over Robson at BC pavilion (still think we should replace public transit with ziplines!!).

STOP buying Olympic wear! I already have way too much.

Perform in the closing ceremonies… it’s a small part but still should be fun : )

See Drum and Spirit of Uganda but I think I may have missed those shows.

Go see Julie Black at the Yaletown livecity.

Check out the livecity end of day fireworks ‘just like a waving flag’ show

Go see one of the athletic events live (got tickets for women’s figure skating short program).

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
