Walks - Saturday Sept 23 - Wednesday Sept. 27

Pirates of the Shore

Join us on Saturday at 8:00 am at Tim's for a distance of your choosing. Enjoy these last walks of summer - soon we'll be complaining about the cold and snow.

Those training for the Scotia half plan to meet at 7:00 am in order to get out before the heat of the day. Sign in on the blog so people know if you plan to start at 7:00 and do the distance or start at 8:00 am.

Distances required this week for training are as follows:
Scotia half is 18 km - hence the early start.
Las Vegas half is 12 km.
New York & Scotia full are walking 34 km on Friday (brutal given the heat).

Other walks:
Sunday walks at 8:30 am from the Running Room on Queen St.
Monday night, at 7:00 pm, from Loblaws
Wednesday night, at 6:30 pm from Occasions.

A few of our walking buddies are ailing - others injured - we wish you well and we miss you. Join us again as soon as you are able.

Some are travelling; some are walking the Camino (and doing really well); to all, be safe; be well. Can't wait to hear about your adventures.

Best of luck to Rainer, Frances and her daughter for their Cavan Race. Please feel fre to join them as there is always room and the butter tarts are said to be delicious.

And lastly, best of luck to Olwyn and Susan who will be competing in a Dragon Boat regatta on Saturday which marks the end of their season.

Love the photos of the Halifax race - great time was had by all - worth considering for next year.

Loving the long lazy summer days

Join us Saturday at Tim's at 8:00 am for a distance of your choosing - getting out is good; going further than you planned is better.

Those training:
1. Scotia half- 16K is on the schedule for this weekend with 10 and 8 during the week. 
2. NYC - Susan and Libby will attempt 34 km or a long distance - whichever comes sooner - on Saturday.

Some folks walk Sunday morning from the Running Room at 8:30 am.

Mid week walks are Monday evenings at Loblaws (7:00 pm) and Wednesday at Occasions (6:30 pm)

Best of luck to the Good Times in the Maritimes racers this weekend. Enjoy all that Halifax has to offer along with the race!

Reminder- Rainer's favorite Cavan "butter tart" race is next weekend...let Libby know if you have registered or are interested. The Shore Things often support this fun local race.

And, lastly, we hope that our Camino walkers are doing well - Kim, Ruth and Jan - enjoy.
