Next stop, Nova Scotia.
K and I are set on running the Nova Scotia Marathon along the southern sea coast of that marvelous province on Sunday, July 27, my mom’s and K’s gramma’s eighty-second birthday. O boy! Is that an exciting proposition!
The 100-day mark measured out to include a recovery week into the first week of August begins Monday (April 28).
For K it will be her first 26.2 miler, although she has been running for many months now on a regular basis, often with her lovable blue pit Stella at her side. It fun to think of running with Thurb and K running with Stella. Soon, we will be all in the same ZIP code, but that, as they say, is another story.
So soon the stories from weeks of training will be documented here. Do yourself a favor and run, or jog, or walk along with us as we make our way to Barrington, Canada’s Lobster Capital, Nova Scotia in July. I am so psyched to say that K is a chip off the old block, while I’m feeling chips in the old knees.
It will be interesting to see how it all comes out. But I couldn’t be more proud and happy to have her very special company for this race. Are we thinking Boston this time? Hardly. Just joy. Pure and simple joy of running for your life, 26.2 miles of it, along the seashore of my native land with K.
