Welcome to the inaugural Run The Dream blog posting. Over the course of the next eight months this page will share with you the highs and the lows of the journey across Canada. I assure you I will not be quitting this dream. There may be days that seen endless, injuries to be managed and, at times, unfavourable weather conditions, but that is a reality of any journey. Lets Run The Dream together!
Today was an amazing day! It felt similar to any first day on the job. So much energy and not sure how to manage it. The morning was full of events in St. John's, NL. The dipping of the toe (which soaked my entire foot by accident), as well as photo-ops at the Terry Fox Monument and Mile 0 (with the mayor).
In terms of engagements, I'd like to thank the students of Memorial University (10:30am) as well as our main kick-off event participants at the Elaine Dobbin Centre for Autism (11am) for being great hosts.
At 12:30pm, I continued the run to Seal Cove with only one pit stop. A hair cut! Finished the 45 kms in 4 hrs 30 mins. A little too fast but we'll slow it down tomorrow! Goodnight.
