Bon Voyage – 48:39Friday - April 27th, 2007
A picture from our Team track night with Coach Carter
It’s been a busy day - Team Gobi received some exciting news we were awarded some grant money from the VIRS which Scooter accepted at a press conference at UVic this afternoon, we were also given some entries into the TC10km that is happening this Sunday (we’ll use it as a Team training run and see if we can get some more people tuned into what we’re doing), I got in a late afternoon run out to the Breakwater, our EAS stuff arrived today (Woohoo for protein powder!!!) and then tonight T and I joined the gang at Sauce for a ‘Bon Voyage’ dinner for Michelle and Nick who are taking off to Vietnam for a year to teach English. It was kind of a whirlwind afternoon and evening.
Was visiting the Gobi March 2006 site earlier and ran across this amazing video: Dune Diving
Was also visiting Dean Karnaze’s blog site this afternoon and saw that he has been nominated for one of TIME magazines Top 100 Most Influential People of the Year.
He posted this on his blog;
"While running is a solo sport, I have always felt that I belong to a larger community of likeminded individuals. As kindred spirits, we runners have always banned together and offered help and support to our brethren. Today, I am asking for your support.
If you feel so inclined, I am asking for your vote. I know making the TIME Top 100 is a long shot, but who knows, if we get enough support maybe we can make it a reality.
