We walked the half-marathon in Ottawa today with B.'s father, who's had a good deal of bad luck when it comes to the health cards he's been dealt but who remains, at 83, an extraordinary walker.  In his youth, he regularly performed epic feats of walking and swimming, and he continues to walk several hours a day, weather permitting.  It was my conviction that if just a few things fell into place we could have a really lovely day out there, and that was exactly what happened!  There is something very special about spending the day doing some sort of endurance event with family and friends - it is like nothing else.  I don't have a picture, but will post one if I can get a good one from the race site.
