Happy Canada Day

Canada

All the way from Dublin, Ireland, I’m wishing my home and native land a

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

If you are one of my readers from outside the Great White North, today is the anniversary of our country becoming, well, a country. And we celebrate it with inordinate amounts of red and white cake, strawberries and, of course,  fireworks.

In 2001 we went a trip on Canada..Spirit Island..

If you don’t know anything about Canada (or just know our frequent use of the word “eh”, maple syrup and our affinity for toques), then let me tell you this: Canada is a beautiful and diverse country, both in its people and its countryside. I am blessed to call it home. Visit the country if you get a chance. And if you are Canadian, may I suggest traveling from coast to coast to coast? Get to know this wonderful land of ours. Maybe even pick up a few races in each city you see?

So Happy Canada Day and happy running!
