News Flash: The Easter Bunny is a Toronto Power Walker!

Who knew? We were assembled at High Park, ready to set out on a beautiful sunny Saturday, when we got a call — wait for a mystery guest. Minutes later a car pulled up and out came THE BUNNY – our very own Rosemarie Bunny, chauffeured by husband and photographer David (I never realized the bunny was married, did you?).

After hugs and photos, she had to leave to deliver her booty to deserving children leaving the rest of up inspired to walk on, 16K for those doing the Toronto Women’s Half and 20K for those doing the MORE. And then there was Helen who was completing 32K in preparation for her upcoming marathon. You rock, Helen.

Phyllis very kindly went ahead and met us at about the 9K mark with water, oranges and pretzels. Thanks Phyllis.


Members ‘Hat Tuesday’
Come out for intervals this Tuesday (see sidebar for details on training) and pick up your TPW hat, courtesy of our wonderful sponsor Harbord House. We’re planning to update our main blog photo with a shot of us in our new hats! Thank you Laurel, Barb and Sue for all your work making this happen.

Thursday evening group walks resume this week. The weather will be terrific, and it’s only 8k! Wear your new TPW hat!

Saturday, April 18
A reminder that this Saturday you have a choice of two locations. Those doing the Toronto Women’s Half can experience the course by meeting at Sunnybrook Park in parking lot #1 (see map) at 8:00 or you can meet Helen at our regular High Park location.

Please reserve the evening of June 2 for a group dinner at our sponsor, Harbord House. We will forgo intervals for that Tuesday and gather at 6:30 to just eat, drink, chat and celebrate what we have accomplished so far.
