Craft Council AGM Weekend

The Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador's AGM is almost over for another year. We have one final meeting and lunch at at the Anna Templeton Centre this morning. There have been a couple long days, but the food is always plentiful and good and everyone gets along so the meetings aren't hard to participate in.

The Studio tours on Friday were fantastic. We had perfect weather and every stop was a highlight. Llamas at Linda Lewis'. Lori bought a big pot from Steve Thorne at Pothead Pottery. We had a massive lunch at Cara and Pam's in Upper Island Cove. Their house is bright and whimsical -- its kind of like a giant pop-up book and Pam built an incredible multi-tiered deck in the time that Lori and I have been trying to get a contractor to come and give us a quote on ours. Dennis Minty's property and studio were serene.

The actual AGM was fairly quick on Sunday morning and we were out before 1:00. It was a long run day on the Tely10 training schedule so I did 10km for the first time in 5 years. My legs feel like jelly and I was in bed and nauseous for the rest of the evening, but at least I finished. Every Sunday is a long run day for the next two months and this week taught me not to stay up drinking scotch on Saturday night and then go out for a hangover KFC dinner two hours before the Sunday run.

  1. Hey Tim,
    Could you post the blogspots that your regional members have, as mentioned in your report on Friday night?

  2. Yes, good idea -- Wednesday's post will include those links and a couple more food related blogs that friends have started recently.

  3. Tim, you know that those long runs are supposed to be slower, right? Most of us run LSD (long, slow distance) weekly, but we slow it down by about 30 seconds per km, or thereabouts. Make sure you stay hydrated!

  4. Good points -- I should figure out a way to stay hydrated for the long runs -- I'd probably feel less wobbly.

  5. I love my fuel belt (got it at the Running Room). It was a bit pricey, but worth it. Actually, it's John's, but I've been "borrowing" it.

    Where do you run?
