May was a rare month for me. I had two long weekends, I do not recall the last time that happened. I was able to get away for a golf weekend with friends. It was nice to relax and catch up, as work has been very busy lately. You can tell summer is officially on it’s way, as Ancaster is booming with runners, walkers and cyclists. This town has a great atmosphere in the summer. One of the big reasons I moved here was for how active the community is. It is nice to see people get out and stay healthy. Remember some activity is better then no activity. Start small and build as you go, I promise you will enjoy the change!
Summer also brings about some great sporting events. Being a huge soccer fan, I am looking forward to the start of the European Championships. I am an English supporter all the way! This may in fact lose me some newsletter readers but it is a chance I have to take. I do think they are in tough against a number of top flying countries including Spain, Germany and the Netherlands to name a few.
Lastly, if anyone is looking to train this summer I am searching for people to run with. I will also be developing some interesting work outs involving hills and weight vests as I prepare for tough mudder in August. If this torture sounds like something you would enjoy, shoot me an email and we can arrange something.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH – Chickpea Salad
2 Cans of Chickpeas
Handful of Fresh Basil
Handful of Grape Heirloom Tomatoes
4 swirls Olive Oil
2 tsps of lemon Juice
2-3 swirls Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
Preparation: Drain and rinse chickpeas. Chop everything else up in a bowl. Dress and serve! The longer is sits the better it tastes. Chickpeas are packed with protein power, 13 grams per can! A great post workout snack for meat eaters, vegans (no cheese) or vegetarians. I cannot take credit for this. Thanks to my colleague Alexis for passing this on!Email This Post
