August Long Weekend Recap

With the Civic Holiday over, another summer long weekend has come and gone. Our long weekend was the perfect balance of fun and relaxation (with a dash of housework 😉 )

On Saturday, we drove to Montreal to watch the Impact vs. Toronto FC. I bought these tickets for my husband for his birthday back in May, so it was nice to finally get to go see the same. There’s a little pizza restaurant we discovered, probably 7 years ago now, and we go there every time we’re in Montreal. This time it was nice to share in the yummy pizza with Odin. I think he liked it:


Then we walked around downtown a bit – mandatory Ben and Jerry’s visit, and a Starbucks stop to add to my city mug collection – before heading over to the stadium for the game. When I bought the tickets, we were hoping to see Jermain Defoe and Julio Cesar in action – unfortunately, Defoe was out with an injury and Cesar was sent back to England during the World Cup. Nonetheless, we had tons of fun and Odin got right into the game:

Two years ago we went to an Impact game against the LA Galaxy (David Beckham was the main purpose of that trip) and the game was at Olympic Stadium. The game on the weekend was at Saputo Stadium, and I must say that there’s not a bad seat in that place. We were a handful of rows from the field, but I think we could have had a great view regardless of where our seats were.

On Sunday, we spent most of our time doing house and yard work. Our house is for sale, so we find ourselves cleaning much more than usual – thankfully we had Monday to finally relax a little! We also took a drive around a neighborhood that we hope to be moving to. Fingers crossed we will actually be able to sell our house, as I have been swooning over the house we have our eye on.

In my world, long weekends also equal squeezing in some additional long runs.


Odin slept in the jogging stroller for my 18km run, and the 15km run was solo. The 15km run was just a couple of seconds off of my target pace time for the Canada Army Run half marathon that I’m running in September. I still have a bit of training to do, but I’m feeling confident in my ability to achieve the time that I want to for that run.
