Canadian PF Happy Hour – Second Edition

I had an incredible weekend – I won an iPad3 on a contest I entered ages ago and despite not having ran 10k in over a year in Vancouver and I managed over 53 minutes (not bad for an old guy)!

It was the Esquimalt Navy 10k and I was shocked as to how good shape some of our military is.

I love seeing all sorts of people running – my wife and daughter were even cheering me on!

    1. Thanks!

      I was shocked when passing the finish line – there were not many people compared to other races I have ran so I didn’t know if I was doing well or not (I never carry a watch when running).

  1. Thanks for the mention Steve. That does sound like an awesome weekend. It’s not everyday that you win an ipad3. Congrats! Sounds like you did well in the race too.
