Still Running

Posted on Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 by Nathan Weinstock

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 toottawa-cancer-run-10k-2013 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.
