Hello Calgary!! (for the first time)....

All the warm weather has disappeared and replaced with snow.  This picture was taken about 30 kms east of Calgary.  Yesterday, you could see the Calgary Skyline and the Rocky Mountains. Today, I couldn't see it until I reached the Bow River (about 6kms from the City Centre).
It was a wet 41 km run but remarkably the New Balance 768's held up to the slushy road conditions and I never had to change my socks!

Running in Alberta will be unique situation for the Dream.  In the prairies, I was averaging around 50 kms a day.  Most of our events in Calgary will not be happening until later next.  In the meantime, I am headed to the BC/AB border tomorrow and will be running towards Calgary again, arriving at City Hall next Wednesday at 11am.
Special thanks to the Calgary Police Force for the first of two escorts into town!  Time to head to into the Rocky Mountains.

FYI- For those following the U.S. politics. I was investigating what the policy stance was by Barack Obama, the next President of the United States, regarding Autism Spectrum Disorders. Interestingly, it is the only specific issue, relating to a disability, they have a separate PDF document on to address the topic.

The Dream Continues....
