Hey friends, if you are looking for a running vacation that is going to be TOTALLY wonderful, come join me for the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon on June 2. Have you ever been to Niagara Falls, Canada? Really, it is awesome–one of the great wonders of the world. I’m telling you about this now because you need to start planning your trip! This is an event where you can come by yourself and meet new friends, come with your girlfriends for a get-away weekend, or bring your whole family because there is so much great tourist stuff going on for the kids and your significant other who may or not run. Check out this ad–that’s me in typical form: with friends Michelle Kerr (in the blue shirt) and Stephanie Brooks, both from the St. Catharines Rowing Club, we’re in a neat place, with a great bottle of Chateau des Charmes, a 2009 Riesling, V.Q.A. which you get free when you sign up to run! And when was the last time you saw a toilet with flowers in a race ad?! Be sure you have a valid passport to go to Canada! If you’ve been putting this off, here is a great reason to get your passport; it’s a document that is very important to have in your life. Get going!
