It went just fine... Thanks for asking.

I woke up about 5:30 this morning and the headache was still there so I figured I'd be calling David to cancel our run together. No such luck. When my alarm went off at 7:00, the headache was gone so I dragged my sorry butt out of bed, put on warm running gear and headed for David's house near Mahone Bay.

And was I ever glad I did!  Though grey and overcast, it was a beautiful, still morning on the South Shore and I thoroughly enjoyed running the 17 kms to Bachman's Beach and back talking companionably with David the whole way.

He enjoyed it too, I think - particularly since he's scheduled to run a half marathon next month and was pleasantly surprised to discover he could run 17kms with relative ease.

Of course, I only had by BB camera with me so wasn't able to get any really good pictures - though I was still quite happy with the images I managed to capture before heading home.

Incidentally, since this is supposed to be a running blog, I plan to more diligent about reporting the details of my training in the future - not least because it will help keep me accountable as I prepare for the races I hope to run in the coming year - including, the Moncton Hypothermic Half Marathon in February, a full marathon in Halifax or Fredericton in May, and the Cape to Cabot 20km race in St. John's in October.

Total runs this week - 4
Total distance - 40 kms
Longest run - 17.1 kms

Happy running, friends!


  1. Sounds like you had a great run, Janice! And what an awesome day to be outside. We did Liverpool and it was fabulous - no snow anywhere!!! Great pics, too - love the third one, nice reflection!!

  2. Thanks, Janet. Glad to hear your run went well too!

  3. Nice run! Though I thought it was much further than 17 K from Mahone Bay to Hirtles.

    1. Ha! Good catch, Keith. It is indeed much farther to Hirtle's Beach. In fact, our run was to Bachman's Beach. I've made the correction. :-)

  4. Janice, do you use a running app or a garmin to track your mileage?
