The run I was planning on participating in was postponed. The route we were going to be taking is full of fire trucks right now. Thank you fire fighters.

Anyway, I did run in my running class last night. The first 5K of a 4 mile run was at 31:04.

In the end, the choice you make makes you.

Ok-I ran 5k(I think) it was a "fun run" through a local running store. I forgot to time it. It was very hot and I had trouble with my breathing so I ended up walking a lot. The only thing I know is that it took less than 45 min. I hope this counts. Have a GREAT 4th.

I would like to lose 10 pounds by memorial day.

I'm in, I'm in! I love these virtual runs - as a single mom, it's hard for me to get out there and run in real races so these ones work well for me.

I like your idea, Turbomel, can I join you and run for everyone who does not live with the freedom we do?

hello Friends!

I could have swore I created a virtual 5K in honour of our fathers. I can't find the thread and tomorrow is Father's Day so I'm moving on to July.

On July 1, 2008
Canada will celebrate it's 141st year since Confederation.
Before 1982 Canada Day had been known as Dominion Day, First of July, Confederation Day, and July the First.

Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. The BNA Act proclaimed "one Dominion under the name of Canada," hence the original title of the holiday, "Dominion Day." Dominion Day was officially renamed "Canada Day" by an Act of Parliament on October 27, 1982. This change reflected the policy of successive governments to down play Canada's colonial origins.

July 4th our neighbours to the South celebrate Independence Day (commonly known as the Fourth of July) is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States, but is often also viewed as simply a summer festival, apart from its patriotic overtones.

Let's get out there and honour our freedom and run like it's no body's business!

I'm going to run in honour of those who do not get to live in a free nation. May we all have that privilage someday.

Melanie * Proud Canadian*
