Farewell to Nova Scotia...

So I couldn't sleep last night.  The alarm was set to go off at 6am to finish off the run from Annapolis Royal to Digby, but the sun and I rose up at 5:30 instead.  Special thanks to Carly for waking up and driving/escorting me along the route at that hour.  I make no promises that it'll be the last time.
We finished at 10:30am, but I wanted to leave the last 100 metres for 7 year old Kate Harrington, who drove over an hour, from Yarmouth, with some of her family members.  Kate arrived around lunchtime.  Her mom, Ann, was explaining to me about the need for an Autism Service Dog which costs about $18,000 and is not covered by any health plan.  We all went to lunch in Digby and Kate had done a lollipop fundraiser for Run The Dream, which raised over $30!  Young entrepreneur in the making!  She also did her homework and knew my obsession with Dr. Pepper, hence I now have 12 more cans of it!

So, it has been 48 running days, over 1600 kms run and now a third province done. Special thanks to the Digby Pines Resort for accommodating Run The Dream for our last night in Nova Scotia.  And to their entire friendly staff!  

Got to go catch my 4:30 ferry to Saint John. Thank you Nova Scotia!

The Dream Continues.....
