brief runs in Montreal

November saw us on a brief visit to Canada to see our daughter. We stayed at a lovely Auberge Les Passants du Sans Soucy in old Montreal. The couple of early morning runs i had were just a couple of miles on the trans Canada trail which passes along the waterfront just a street away. A wonderful time to visit Montreal, Quebec, Toronto and Niagara.

Border League 'debut'

On the 12th November I became a 'real club runner'! This was a Border League 10k race at Caernarfon. A surprisingly good day without too much wind or rain - which would have been interesting right on the coast. The start and finish were near the Caernarfon Castle. Highlights of the event- LOTS of Buckley Runners, all runners in club shirts; oh and a 10k time only 10 seconds slower than Flintshire 10k - that was ok and room for improvement.
