Dead Jor La!

Yesterday was the Becel Heart & Stroke Ride For Heart for which I had to wake up at 6am in order to make it to the Exhibition Place by 8am. My dad didn't think that the DVP would be closed so early in the morning so we were in for a surprise when we were forced onto the 401 to head east. We ended up going all the way downtown via Victoria Park and then along Queen Street, which took forever. Christian and I biked from his house to the Ex and met up with Charles, Liang and Mark. We started riding at around 9:20... at first it was so cool to ride along the Gardiner and admiring the Toronto skyline, then fatigue hit going uphill on the DVP and seeing all the bland scenery. From the Exhibition Place across the Gardiner, up the DVP to York Mills and all the way back to the Ex, we finished at around 12:20. 50km!! I can't believe I finished it alive... I was only planning on doing the 25km considering I never bike. We had lunch at the Ex and hung out until 2:30, then Charles, Chris and I set towards the Harbourfront in search for ice cream that I was craving during the race. Biking after the 50k was so brutal- my knees were throbbing, my bum was sore and I could have fallen asleep while on my bike. But alas, we made it to Queen's Quay Terminal to have super yummy homemade ice cream (I had Mom's Apple Pie) :D And as if I hadn't tortured my body enough, we biked all the way to campus to eat at Einstein's. Then it was back to Chris' place to bash my bike in the shed, never to bring it out to see the light again. Haha ok, maybe it'll be a few weeks before I touch it again... after my bum says its alright.
