Canada Day 2014

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

This morning was the Canada D'Eh 5K in Amherstburg, Ontario. It was a nice morning.


We met up with Hubby's cousin before the start.


And there they go.


I was fortunate to meet up with a friend. Her husband is a runner. This was Susan's first 5K. The time went quickly as we walked and chatted.


My number and medal. When we registered, we could choose which Canadian we thought should be on the medal. This year's choice is Terry Fox.

"In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of his cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi), and ultimately cost him his life, his efforts resulted in a lasting, worldwide legacy."

The first place runner finished in 16:43. My walking time: 51:56. That is an improvement over my time in my first 5K one year ago. I am happy.

    Love the photos Judy. I'm surprised the water isn't cold after such a long, cold winter. No one swimming in Port Dover when we were there a week ago.

    I don't understand #6 either.

    #1 I read it but alas I do not get it. I never nap.

#2 I try hard to never be late. Punctuality was the name of the game.
Number 3 makes sense.

#4 I do not know what a sense of purpose is.

#5 is redundant.

#6Why take a placebo, if it does not help why pollute your body!.

#7 I see no point to walk up 20 hills, time wasted unless the scenery is Grandiose.

#8. I never think about a sense of belonging--I JUST BELONG!!!!.

#9 I am my own free spirit. No Church or Temple just my own self worth and my sense of my own. worth.

# 10 To myself be true and I will find honest and GOOD people to interact with.

HUGS and much love Pat in Maine.
Take care emoticon emoticon

Iron Hawk

Saturday, May 10, 2014

I took a break from Sparking for a few days. I am back now but trying to limit my Spark time.

This morning was the third annual Iron Hawk duathlon. There were people doing the Sprint Duathlon, Sprint Duathlon Relay, Do-A-Du, Do-A-Du Relay, or 5K Run. I was entered in the run. One of my sons and my daughter did the sprint duathlon. The weather conditions were ideal although Son and Daughter had to deal with head winds on part of their bike ride.

We are all happy with our results and we all had fun. It was good.

I finished first in my age category. I like to say that before I add that I was the only one in my age category. emoticon

    I can relate to coming in first. I walked a 5k when I was 70 and came in first.............in my age category lol.

The important thing is we are still active and enjoying life. Have a wonderful day.
