From That to This in Two Years Flat


Two years ago today, I asked you to help a brother out.  Here's my entry from that day.

Help a Brother Out
Published August 19, 2005 @ 08:42 in Gord Downie's Hallelujah
Help Wanted

Gord Downie covered Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the film "Saint Ralph".  I recently wrote about this tune and I've been searching / begging / praying for an MP3 of it ever since.

If anyone out there can help a brother out, I'd appreciate it and return the favour.  My email address is posted on the contact page.  I love the song, I love Downie and I've heard great things.  Yet, it's nowhere to be found!
Much appreciated.

By that point I had only been hunting for Gord Downie's "Hallelujah" for a few weeks and I was falsely optimistic someone on the Hip community would throw this dog a bone.  It wasn't until February of this year I scored the non-existent soundtrack.  I had my "Hallelujah", and I knew it was time for my own personal hallelujah, so I started running.

I hadn't run since the 4x100m relay in primary school but I knew I had to run a marathon.  I signed up for five Running Room clinics, beginning with the Learn to Run and concluding with the Marathon Clinic, and I'm currently in the 10k Clinic.  Yesterday I ran 8k and this morning 6k and I'm loving it.

Wednesday's update will show I've been running for 24 weeks, but it all started two years ago.
