Bluenose Marathon Weekend 2013

We have emerged from Bluenose Marathon Weekend, smiling and happy! It began on Saturday morning with the Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run, a 4.2 K kids’ race. Mark planned to run it with Gabrielle…

So they met up with the other Sacred Heart School of Halifax runners for a rally…

…and no finish line pictures because Gabrielle took off and her father spent 45 minutes searching for her. She ran with a friend, completed the race in just over 20 minutes, and managed to get herself to the pre-determined meeting place inside the Metro Center, but scared the pants off Mark in the process. Needless to say, a safety lecture followed!

And then it was Sunday. It was 2 degrees Celsius when we got up, but it warmed up and turned into a beautiful day for a run. Mark, Kurt and David started out first, running the Half Marathon. They were followed by Lisa, Barb, Madison, Margaret and Madeline in the 10K. We’re proud of the girls – they were three of the 40 Under-15 Females to take on the 10K. We all crossed the finish line within our goal. Hooray!!!

We’re super-proud of all the runners who took part in the Bluenose. And we love running family style!!

Yours in running,
