A sense of wonder is a pretty cool thing to see in kids.  And although I have been exposed to seeing this sense of wonder typically unravel outside, I saw wide-eyed kids exploring the natural environment inside.  I spent most of yesterday at Science North in Sudbury.  It’s an amazing centre with a butterfly exhibit, ecosystems of Ontario, a technology section and many other cool things...

I can't thank you enough for your notes of encouragement. Today was the first day in a week and a half where I actually ran the whole day.  And although some blisters are grossing me out, they didn't affect me getting in the marathon today. Happy boy!!

Well, I guess no one said this would all be fun and games!
I’m not going to lie… I feel in rough shape.
My left leg is having some issues, which has caused me to have to walk/run a bit in the last few days.  My new(ish) shoes have felt good for running but they don’t seem to enjoy the walking part of it… I have wicked blisters on the back of my heels.  I have choice words for the slope of the TCH in this part of Ontario.  My right foot can’t plant itself flatly.  As a result (in my opinion!), I have a nice little blister on my baby toe.

Being able to sit with Koona and enjoy the sun while looking out over Lake Nipissing made the run earlier today almost seem forgettable!  Something about big open water…

Hitchhiking can be an interesting phenomenon.  I think I may have some good stories by the end of this if I continue meeting the people I’m meeting!  In the last few days, I’ve met a propane serviceman who told me his life story in 5 minutes and then proceeded to give me a 15 minute sermon on the doctrines of the Christian church.  I’ve met a hobby farmer, a mechanic, a mining engineer from Iran, and a weed dealer.  Yep, should be an interesting few weeks! ...
