december in san francisco

a lot has happened in this past month. our flying act has been cut out of the show temporarily as things get fixed. we're all a little sad and missing it very much, techs and artists alike.
we've learned a new track! we're now running rig 3!!! but alas, without a flying act there is little rigging in the track. . but i do get to toss a big bottle of bug spray at an artist!

we've signed up for a marathon in march and have started our training for it. farthest we've run so far is 6miles. . . pretty impressive. to test ourselves this past sunday we just ran a 5k race! we finished in 30mins. . 5 min less than our personal best.

winter, here in san francisco is amazing. warm. ok, not super sunny hawaii warm, but still not below zero cold! the temparature has yet to get less than 3 degrees out here which is wonderful! it may not be shorts weather (although a few days have been close!) but we've not needed our winter booties

christmas was warm, sunny and no snow! we had a great day. slept in, ate chocolate and skyped our boyfriend. we made him chase around the house looking for post its until he found he his present. a macbook pro! he was super suprised and happy. and we got a game for our ds that has a ton of games!! sooo sooo many games on one disk! and then we had a friend come over and play video games all day long! a 14hr marathon of games!!

our boyfriend has just left for korea to teach english. he's enjoying it alright despite jet lag and the chaoticness of their lack of organizing. . . lol

and thats about it! we're running daily and getting ready for our marathon! can't wait!!
2010 is just around the corner and we'll hit a year with cirque! time for a fancy jacket!

san francisco

so we just had our first annual leave with cirque
we got a week off to do as we please so we took this opportunity to drive all over ontario to visit
family we've not seen in a long time and to introduce our boyfriend to them!

we went to waterloo, collingwood, owen sound, ottawa, bayfield and london. we had a fantastic week off.

then we boarded a plane, went thru customs, had a brief stop in vegas (layover) and ended up in sunny and slightly windy san francisco!

we've only been here a day but we already love it!!! we've discovered whole foods, got ourselves a new cell phone and taken long walks around the neighborhood. we're close to site and the rest of downtown.

the weather here is quite nice. still jacket worthy but nice.

in the next few days we'll pull out our jogging shoes and start running! although we are close to work, we'll do a detour to add distance as we prepare for our marathon!!! we've got 3 months to train before we reach san jose and the marathon in napa valley.

here we are.. . getting cozy with gersh

bbq on the rooftop of our residence in toronto
