Andre DeGrasse and Usain Bolt joke as
they cross the finish line in the 200m semi.
The 200m final is tomorrow evening
He lives about 500m from the race finish line.
He's looking very robust! He also mentioned that he is predicting
a very long and snowy winter in 2017 that will delight cross-country
skiers near and far.
"For about a month this summer, I was
sampling groundwater along the Niagara Escarpment. Being
away from home was tough, but working with some keen young
people made it lots of fun despite my homesickness. Going
into our field season, none of my summer students were runners.
I knew that I needed to get them interested in running if
I was to keep my training up while away from my normal routine.
One student, Sophie, really got into it and even let me
convince her to run the Shore to Shore race in Wiarton on
the August long weekend. This was the 64th anniversary of
the race, and their experience running it is demonstrated
in how well it was organized. The 13km race starts in Oliphant
beach on Lake Huron and ends in Wiarton, at the Georgian
Bay shore. The best part of the race, by far, was the finish
line, which is a straight 500m shot downhill that's lined
with cheering spectators. I'd recommend this race to anyone
in the area on the August long weekend! Sophie and I had
