The Rideau Canal
Yesterday we took part in a unique Ottawa activity--skating on the Rideau Canal. If I have one thing to say it's that I'm so glad that Brent is a good skater. We had the kids with us plus a friend. I can skate but not great and we had two non-skaters with us, that being Nathan and Shelby's friend. Shelby would just go off by herself and Brent would have to skate way down the canal to find her. She was having a great time. This is a really cool experience to skate outside on a huge ice rink with hundreds of people. It really is amazing to see all the people.
Running since 1995, Kusam Klimb Trail Race (PR 5:22 in 2009), Marathon (PR 4:23 at Royal Victoria Marathon), 7 Half Marathons (PR 1:48), countless 10Ks (PR 48:15), 8K and 5K races both on the road and trail. I've participated in the Island Road Relay on Vancouver Island (1996 & 1998), Haney to Harrison 100K Road Relay (1995 - 2004) and raced each of the 8 stages, the Thetis Lake 20K Relay and the Great Lake Walk at Cowichan Lake in 2007.
