Such a great city - I loved Ottawa. Even though it was cold and dreary I still had the chance to run along the Rideau River and the Canal. The shops were wonderful and there were too many choices for restaurants.

I loved the Byward Market - fresh veggies and great shops.

Kim and Sarah took us to the Manx Pub on Elgin St. The tulips were still in bloom.

Here is a pic of a great kitchen wares store that I loved.

Saturday Run

Saturdays run went really well - A nice change from the windy weather. I was smarter and just wore a t-shirt so I didn't feel too warm. Good thing it was an early morning run too as the day got progressively dreary, but was lovely at 7:00am. 3,72miles (5.98k), 52min25sec with 4x 1 minute walks in between. Later, while at work at Eddie Bauer, I had a customer who was a marathon runner who didn't start running until his late 50's. He has run all the trails of the Cabot Trail including up Cape Smokey. Totally inspiring.
Once I feel comfortable with the 5k, I hope to start shaving the time a bit.

Long Time between Posting

I can't believe all these months have slipped away without a post. Trevor left for course in March and took my camera with him - that's just an excuse though. Now that I am down to one job I really should have the time to keep up-to-date and so I shall try.
One thing that has changed is that I am taking a learn to run class. Quite fun actually and I had a good run through Shubie park this morning. 55mins 23sec and 3.96 miles that's 6.37 km. Not bad and I probably walked about 7 minutes sporadically throughout. It was warmer this morning than I thought it would be and I was a bit overdressed for it. I am hoping to run in the Lunenburg Heritage 5k run this June 14. Woo Hoo! These runs are always something I've imagined people in another world did, not something I've ever considered. I still have lot's of work to do, but our run instructor assures us we will be ready.
