Running and now Rolling!!......

"A leader is a dealer in hope."
-Napoleon Bonaparte
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, please allow me to officially introduce Terry Robinson! Terry is an accomplished individual I met three years ago working in the Ontario Public Service (OPS).  He grew up in Dryden, Ontario, graduated from Lakehead University and, by the way, did I mention that he is a two-time Para-Olympian. Terry has made the sacrifice of leaving his job to wheelchair with me, while I run, from Ottawa to Winnipeg- 3 month and 3000 kms of dedication! Welcome Terry!
Today we started from the Centennial Flame and were joined by a group of employees from ServiceOntario.  The days run ended, 32kms later, in Richmond.  Nothing like an Ontario run day with a little heat and humidity!  Looks like there is more of that ahead!  In the evening, Ottawa councillor Maria McRae invited the team to her Ward 16 community BBQ (special thanks to Andrew DiCapua for the arrangements).  Good time, good food and great company!
The Dream Continues....And now rolls On!
