Join me in thanking Bob and Helen for hosting Our Great Gathering last weekend. It was a wonderful evening with good friends and good food. And, a special thanks to all who contribute to making the Shorethings function - many contribute and we all benefit. Lastly, thanks for coming out and making it a lovely evening.
Join us on Saturday at Tim's at 8:00 am. The distance is whatever suits you - the training is done now for the 2017 year so most of us are happy just to get out and move.
Sunday morning walkers gather at the Running Room on Queen St. at 8:30 am.
Mid week evening walks are Monday (Loblaws) and Wednesday (Occasions) - both nights at 6:30 pm. Be sure to sign in on the blog so that others know what your plans are.
Day time walks are organized by Nishe - let us know if you want to be added to the distribution email list for the day and time.
Announcements & Comments from Libby: It was wonderful to see all the medals displayed at our year end party! Congrats to all (there were many) who raced last year.
A special congratulations to Susan- our intrepid blog master who completed 2017 MILES in 2017. What a great achievement and splashy medal. Any takers to join Susan next for next year- 2018 miles in 2018?
Just a few more reminders for consideration next year:
Ruth, Susan and Libby did the Uxbridge Run for the Diamond. It was a great race with a walking division. Distances of 5, 10 and half marathon- close to home, on a trail and fabulous lunch!!. April 15, 2018. There is actually a draw for a real diamond! lease consider signing up. uxbrigehalfmarathon.ca
Rainer as always recommends Bermuda Triangle in January and Cleveland Rock & Roll in May. Races supporting walkers are always welcome.
Eileen and Eva regaled us with the fabulous bling gained at the Maritime Race Weekend in Halifax in September. A chance to dress up and gain great medals!
Trish and the gang loved Las Vegas Rock and Roll!. A warm race in November
Whatever you passion, consider signing up for a race or two for 2018! Check out races on the blog.
Eileen took some great photos at the Gathering; I'll post several in the weeks ahead.
And one more - just because there are so many good ones...
