Recovering from Fun-couver

Sunday I set a new half marathon PR: 2:40:56. Sunday is LSD at the Mother's Day 10K and then the training for the Calgary Half shall begin.

I was forced to send a formal complaint to the BC Ministry of Health. Their complete ineptness is mind boggling. Due to some strange computer glitch, my BC Care Card was re-activated in 2006. I moved in Sept. 2002. So I thought I'd straightened it all out and now they've sent a collection agency after me. I called the agency last night and thought it was all kosher.

Phoned the general information line this morning and spoke to a lovely girl who pulled up the 2006 information and said, "Hmm...looks like we have everything we need to resolve this. I don't know why it wasn't done." So good. I get the name of the dude I was to send my complaint to and go out for lunch and the freaking collection agency calls AGAIN! Apparently threats of harassment don't even stop these people. I'm supposed to just accept the fact that the calls are automatically generated and live with the harassing calls for the 24 hours it will take to update my file. I DON'T THINK SO!

Nothing a little deep breathing on the yoga mat won't take care of.

Welcome to blogger land!
Kudos on the gardening plot, you might want to put tomotoes on your balcony in pots. They are temperamental things in our strange weather.
Now I want a salad...
