Twas a busy weekend! After a private film showing on Saturday night, I doubted if we could wake up bright and early for the Terry Fox Run on a Sunday morning.
We left the house at 7:30 am for the 8 am run. We decided to just ride our bikes because I don’t think I can carry our 3 year old for 5 kilometers!
I knew we were late so we just decided to wait in front of the starting line because we knew we couldn’t get in because of our bikes.
And because it was late for a run, my 3 yo was screaming that it was too hot!
This was the head of the pack. Last year, we were somewhere in the middle on our bikes and it was really difficult. Because it’s not really a marathon, people were just walking slowly. And it was hard to traverse the crowd.
The lady in the purple cap is someone I saw all the time running along Crescent Mall. I admire her resolve to run every morning!
We let our eldest run the last leg of the race. He forgot to take his helmet off. 😛 On our bikes, we finished the whole thing in 20 minutes!
We dedicate our participation to my Dad who beat cancer twice, my brilliant classmate Kathy, and a friend’s father battling the big C.
Thanks, CanCham for organizing this event!
