Kilometre 4,000!!....

"There are three types of people in this world- Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened.  We all have a choice.  You can decide which type of person you want to be!"
                           -Mary Kay Ash (Thank you Tom Jackman for the quote!)
The Run The Dream route travels along the Highway 17 (the Trans Canada Highway) and Terry and I will be running and rolling this highway, with the exception of a few side roads all the way from Sudbury to Winnipeg (approx. 1,500 kms).  On Friday night, around 6:15pm, the 4,000 km milestone, since St. John's, NL was achieved in Espanola, ON.  An ironic story- Our accommodation for the evening, Goodman's Motel, intersection of Highway 17 and 6 is the same motel Terry Fox stayed in as he ran through!  

FYI- I just happened to find this large sword in the parking lot and thought it required a photo-op.
Also, just wanted to say thank you to the Greater Sudbury Police Force for the escort out of Sudbury the other day.  Funny story-  As we were being escorted out of town, a women in a pick-up truck left her tailgate down and two gas cans fell out onto the road.  The officers attempted to flag her down but she sped off.  Only the name "Bob" was on the gas can, so on behalf of Run The Dream, I'd like to thank "Bob" for donating the 30 litres of gas and the officers for physically filling our tanks.
Another road crew change- Special thanks to my brother Justin for spending two weeks on the road escorting Terry and I (from Newmarket to Espanola).  We welcome Barry and Meghan Tatchell, from Mississauga, for the week to Sault Ste.Marie!

The Dream Continues.....And Rolls On!
