We never know what we are going to find when we are out for a run.We were on a training run the other day battling the poor slushy footing and unplowed roads. The shoulders of the road hadn’t been plowed so we turned down a “dead end” road just to get away from some traffic. On this particular road if you look around you would think you were up north, the brush comes right to the edge of the road and there are only a couple of houses. Oh yea and there is Frosty, waiting for us at the Dead End sign, hiding behind the piles of snow left by the plow. Too funny, he was the last thing we expected to see. The rest of our run didn’t seem so bad after running into him!
In the afternoon, we donned our Running Free hoodies and headed over to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Reunion at Pickering College in Newmarket. We set up a display of shoes and talk to the participants about proper foot wear.
The Relay for Life is one of the cancer society’s major fundraisers. In Newmarket the event will be held on Friday, June 19 at Pickering College. It is an evening event with lots of entertainment, food and an opportunity to walk or run 5, 10, 15, 21k to support cancer research. The event this past Saturday was an opportunity to past participants to sign up for this year’s event.
In 2014 there were 128,735 participants whose hard work raised 42.2 million. We all know that isn’t enough because they are doing it again! You can sign up on line as an individual or get your friends and family together and enter as a team here > Relay for Life
Of course there is a Blister Sister team and anyone can join us!
