And now after 8 months, we have arrived at the taper. The hard work is done, and now it's time to marinate. Last week we ran our final pair of long runs (40k Thursday, followed by 20k Friday) of this training cycle. We spent a few days staying in Blue Mountain with the Hannas, and had the unique opportunity to run parts of the actual course a couple of times.
|Cooper on the Gondola. Leigh and I hiked a sweaty hike up the mountain while Cooper and Auntie Kara rode up, and then took the free ride down together.|

We found some other reminders of this awesome event during our stay. We spotted a lone Sears Great Canadian Run arrow sign zip tied to a stop sign on our 20k run, and 'this' on the upcoming events board!
Don't forget that you are ALL welcome to join us on race day. The course information is available here. Please join us to cheer, encourage, say hi, or run a few miles. Can't commit to a whole day, come on out to the finish line, and for the post race dinner and celebration. The finish line is incredible, and is followed by a banquet with a great free meal for all runners and supporters. We'd love to have you there to celebrate with us. Without you none of this would be possible!
