Today, it was back to the Calgary pathways. Going to Yellowknife and then  Las Vegas, it's been a while since I ran along the Bow. I found my usual parking spot at Shouldice pool and headed east towards Eau Claire Market. Along the way, I met Runner Ken. He has been following my progress and he told me about a run he had done with Chris McDougall, author of "Born to Run". Apparently Chris had come to Calgary in September and they had done a little barefoot running. I said cheers to Ken and continued on my way.

To the east of Eau Claire is the new "River Walk". I've run this path several times but so far hadn't tried the new washrooms. There are two Super High Tech Toilets (SHTTs). To get in, you touch the light sensor and the door swishes open. A voice welcomes you and music is played for the duration of your stay. I think a famous voice and song would enhance the experience. My choice would be Darth Vader and "Taking care of business" by Bachman Turner Overdrive. Do you have a voice and song you'd like to see used? Send me your suggestions and I'll post the top 3 in a future blog.

On Saturday Dec.4th Mainstreet Pharmacy in Cochrane held a "Right To Play Day". All proceeds from the sale of goods were donated to the charity. Kelly Kimmett has been a great supporter of Marathon Quest 250. He sponsors all my pain medication, muscle relaxants, band aids, sun block and foot cream. When all the numbers were added up they had raised $2,440 for the kids. Great stuff.
