River of Ice

Chrismas Eve so it's time for a pre-turkey training run along the banks of the Bow. It's been pretty cold the last few days but the frost clinging to the trees has made for some spectacular scenes. The last two weeks have been pretty hectic, there's been good media interest with interviews with the Cochrane Times, Calgary Herald, City TV and Canadian Press. I managed to get some training in as well because they always want to video me running along the Cochrane Foothills Marathon course.

The "Virtual Map" (Cochrane to Boston and back) of my milage has been printed. The Rotary Club of Cochrane sponsored 50 maps and they will be going to the Schools I'll be running at through out the year. I have 9 schools signed up but I still need 31 more, if you know of a school that might be interested in having me run a marathon around their track or field then let me know.

People have started sponsoring the marathons and others have been great helping me along the way, several have helped with in-kind donations, covering some of the costs of Marathon Quest 250.  I've posted these individuals and businesses under "Sponsorship" on the website.

Finally have a great Christmas and New Year

 

Can you spot the Penguin?
