What did it Cost…What’s it Worth?

July 8, 2012

Hey everyone. It’s me again – just having some fun as always. You’ve all seen or heard “those” ads before so I thought I’d do my own little version.

(…and remember…To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.)

OK – A few days ago it was 36 degrees Celsius here in crazy old Toronto. That’s fairly hot on this side of the world! The humidity was off the scale; so, what to do on such a muggy day? Put on a back pack and run of course!

Off I went, 8 kg backpack strapped on snuggly, running almost 5 km to the gym for a one hour, brutal Muay Thai workout and then running back again. What I found at the end of my run was, well – you’ll see.

Away we go - 

 Fancy Schmancy new runners… $89.99 …on sale of course!

Money saved goes to new socks fund!

Muay Thai and other workout gear…a little more than $200.00

A few years away from the UFC still!

Membership at the best MMA training gym in Toronto? More that $ 1000.00 per year.

Palace of pain.

Discovering a kids wading pool after a 10 km run wearing an 8kg back pack?

Ab-so-lute-ly PRICELESS!

Fresh! And cold!

Feels soooo good!

ahhhhh – that was nice!

…and remember – Do what you can to save the Earth. It’s the only planet we know of that has chocolate!

Live well – stay young ( at heart anyway!)

and smile – even through the pain
