I thought I’d take a break from talking about inspection issues and surprises and tell you about my latest Ottawa run, the Alterna Run. This event was staged to raise funds to fight men’s cancers. It was a cool day with the threat of rain. Fortunately, the rain held off until the end of the run.
This was one of the smaller events in Ottawa with a few hundred participants. So it had a bit of a collegial, friendly vibe. That was very nice. And the route, along the Rideau canal, was very attractive, very scenic.
There was the added treat of a pancake breakfast served to the runners at the end. And I had the pleasure of having my flap-jacks handed to me by my lovely wife, Amanda. She was one of the volunteers helping out.
So, with a respectable running time of 0:59:15.5, a delicious breakfast, and the satisfaction of helping a worthy cause, I’d say this was a very successful event for me.
