On Tuesday December 4, I attended my first â€œBlack and Medals dinnerâ€? at the Harbord House. Thirty-five Toronto Power Walkers celebrated ten years of pounding the pavement together. It was fun to look at everyoneâ€™s medals and listen to all the racing stories. I spoke about my 217 km walk from White Rock, B.C. to Seattle, Washington, with EverWalk, founded by marathon swimmer, Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll, head handler on the Cuba to Florida swim. (For info about future EPIC walks, visit EverWalk.com.) Thanks to Sue for organizing such a wonderful evening and to Phyllis for being the MC. And thank you to TPWs, for welcoming me into your fold.
This Saturday, there was a light dusting of snow on the trees and trail in the cemetery. It was a crisp -2C, but bright and sunny. Our intrepid group of 20 winter walkers did the 6.3 km circuit at a brisk pace. (Dianne and Rorie arrived an hour early and walked 12.6 km.)
Looking forward to the 40th Annual Robbie Burns 8km Road Race on January 27, 2019 in Burlington.
