On The Road Again....

Tomorrow, at 12PM NST, Run The Dream continues....  As expected, my body is in an adaptation phase and the rest early on will pay dividends later.

Although I am far from home right now it is great to know that Run The Dream is making a difference.  Special thank you to the Honourable Senator, Jim Munson, for acknowledging this run, in the Senate, as part of the World Autism Awareness Day celebrations.  It gave me goosebumps being mentioned in the same sentence as Terry Fox.

For those wondering what has been happening over the last few days, well, where do I start?Kevin Cassan, high school friend and university roommate, has come aboard;  Joseph Wilson, my personal trainer, has voluntarily flown in for a few days to observe and re-work my run program;  and Alex has now taken over the role of 'left side of my brain'.  She has kept me on a regimented recovery schedule!  Eat, Sleep and Stretch!

Time for bed...25 kilometres through Terra Nova National Park tomorrow...Maybe I'll see my first Moose!

Jonathan: It will be good to see you running again. Take your time, Canada is a big country. "Moose" A Newfoundland speed bump. They are beautiful animals. Get a picture if you can. Just to update you on Eric. Yesterday he attended the Special Olympics swim meet in Carbonear. He finished both his 25m and, yes, the 50m swim. We are so proud of him. Have a great day.
