Rocky Mountain Running...

"History proves that there is no challenge too great for a world that stands as one."
                              -Barack Obama
Hello from Rocky Mountains!  Last Wednesday, Alex and I drove out to the AB/BC border to run the final 200 kms, in Alberta, west to east, towards Calgary, in anticipation of our events in Calgary from Nov 12th-14th.
Last Thursday, the run went from the border to Castle Mountain (35kms) and on Friday, from Castle Mountain to Canmore (51kms).  Friday, was a full day, which started with running from 8:30-10:30am, a meeting with Banff Councillor Leslie Taylor, then off to Banff Elementary School for a visit with the kids before heading back out onto the road to finish the daily distance.  As usual, all the kids at the Banff Elementary had great questions and comments!
Hard to imagine how fast time has gone.  Today, by the end of day, will be km 7,000!

The Dream Continues....
