Day 13 – 9 km (total – 287.2 km)
Today’s run just didn’t feel right. The outside of my right knee was tender and it’s likely my IT band having issues. So Sarah picked me up and we drove the 40ish kilometers to Gander to take a couple of days off. On one hand it’s disheartening after the amount of training I’ve put in over the last year, but injuries were bound to happen over the next 9 months, so I’m trying not to get too worked up about it.
In all likelihood, I may have had to stop running anyway. When we arrived in Gander, it started snowing quite heavily and has been doing so all day. There is already about 15-20 cm of accumulation and it’s not over yet. So perhaps a couple of days rest is good timing.
it’s pretty cool to have students taking an interest and engaging in conversations of screen time and time outside with their teacher… thanks Mr. McCreesh!
There have been some great emails coming in off the website and it’s great seeing people connect with this project and its message as we make our way across the country. A friend out in BC teaches and has shown his class the website and what we’re doing. Some students have taken their own initiative to email us and see how we’re doing and wish us well. So even though BC seems like a world away right now, it’s pretty cool to have students taking an interest and engaging in conversations of screen time and time outside with their teacher… thanks Mr. McCreesh!
