Some Last Calgary Oddities

Before my midnight flight I was able to walk around downtown Calgary for a couple hours and enjoyed spotting some beautiful art placed here and there. Even the airport had some oddities, like the orange horse near security.

Fitness Boxing

By Wednesday evening Calgary had cooled off a lot, so instead of running I decided to try out Fitness Boxing, a rhythm-focused exercise game for Nintendo Switch.

Confederation Park Tunnel

My run took me through Calgary's Confederation Park and a tunnel that goes through it. The tunnel is lined on either side by stunning murals.

Dinner at Clay Oven

My coworkers and I decided to eat at Clay Oven for our first meal in Calgary and were very impressed by the experience. A highlight for me was that the menu clearly labels all the dishes that can be made vegan. I had Vegetable Biryani and Chapati and was very satisfied.

Run 2019.06.17

After being on planes all day, I was in need of a long run, so I decided to do the Zombies, Run! New Adventure Search for the Pacific: 10K, part of two Lewis and Clark missions that have been released. The mission was well produced and captured the group's journey to the pacific with a fair bit of sensitivity.

Murray A. Lightburn – Changed My Ways

Murray A. Lightburn's Hear Me Out is a warm, intimate and profound album and "Changes My Ways" is one of the brightest tracks on it. This video gives it a new character with absurd costume changes.

It had clouded over when I was heading home, but I enjoyed a solid run along what has become my typical route.

Run 2019.06.12

During the Zombies, Run! mission a reference was made to The Prisoner again, with a Rover popping up. This season's story has been an improvement over the last and the Easter eggs like this one have been rewarding.

Goatless Cheeze from Real Fake Meats

Saturday I stopped in at Real Fake Meats for the first time and took home their goatless cheeze. It was a perfect match for the flavour and texture I remember of actual goat cheese.

Run 2019.06.11

I ran nearly the same route as Monday but was dashing ahead of clouds on a longer Zombies, Run! mission, so I ended up going a bit further today.

Run 2019.06.10

It has been such a great string of days, and I'm definitely feeling like running is back to part of every day.

Araz Demha’s Moments of Relief

Araz Demha's new album Moments of Relief is a moving, beautiful work. It's presented as "Hopeful songs for sad people. Marching songs for the zombie apocalypse." and that's apt. There's a sadness in the songs, but they are uplifting and surprising.

Run 2019.06.09

I could get used to running on sunny days. It feels so good to be able to be out in a t-shirt and shorts and not feel the icy chill of the Nova Scotian wind.

Run 2019.06.08

There's finally a string of great weather in Halifax. It was rewarding to run though downtown, though traffic lights are always a nuisance.
