Director Needed for The Secret Marathon
from Martin Parnell,
Plans are well
under way for The Secret Marathon 3k to
be held on March 6th 2019.
This year we have grown
from 10 Running Room locations to 18.
Unfortunately due to Grade
9 workload Autumn has had to remove herself
from being Race Director for Sudbury.
So I have a request,
would someone in the Rocks pick up the baton
FYI, this is the new Race
Director package for the event: Link to
Thanks for your consideration.
All the best,

Sometimes the most
pleasant things just happen...
Wonderful reminder yesterday riding
the bus from downtown of how much I enjoy and
respond to old people...probably some more than
Impromptu conversation all the
way to the south end library with an 80 year old
Finn? (based on accent) woman. It started at the
bus terminal when she asked me how much I paid
for my snowshoes (I was carrying Anne's and had
mine strapped to my pack from walking into town
yesterday morning). It continued as we sat facing
each other across the back aisle. What an incredible
old soul...intrepid, inspiring, full of life.
I loved her instantly. She had two walking poles
because, as she offered, she had to stop running
a little while ago because of knee problems and
she had to stop cross country skiing recently
because of shoulder problems. She was now reminiscing
and re-thinking about taking up snowshoeing again.
We talked about getting outside and the value
of exercise and the vigour that fresh cold air
brings...BTW she still loves shoveling and she,
like myself, highly recommend it over so called
"labour saving" pollution spewing tools
such as snowblowers.
In the end I helped her off the
bus, though she didn't really need my help. She
thanked me for the assistance and the conversation
and I rode away missing her...24 hours later I
still do and it makes me consider that maybe I
should be doing something about it...
Not exactly sure what though...
She is the template of how I want
to live and be until the very end of my days...perhaps
she was a gray haired angel (for lack of a better
more accessible description)?
