The Day Befor Marathon Day - Friends, Fun, Food, and more volunteer work

Today was about.....

more registration.....

Meeting new folks, like
Myra, and her guide Peter and his wife Jill.

They are here as part of Myra's Marathon.
"I grew up with vision loss, and as a result I have come to know CNIB quite intimately. From the time I became a client at the age of four to my present involvement as a volunteer, I can attest to CNIB's commitment to individuals affected by vision loss. CNIB has made a profound difference in my life and in the lives of so many others.

To celebrate my upcoming 65th birthday, I want to give back to the organization that has meant so much to me. Since I am an enthusiastic long-distance power walker, a marathon-related project to raise funds for the CNIB Library seemed a natural fit!"
Having completed the Newfoundland Provincial Marathon & the Marathon By The Sea in Saint John, New Brunswick, Myra is on PEI to complete the 3rd of her scheduled 13 Canadian Marathons. Her complete schedule is HERE.

Seeing old friends and wishing them well......

Best Luck to everyone in Stan's running groups (including Stanley!) and all the PEI Roadrunners!

Having some foolish fun with special friends

like Dianne Pye

And of course, carbing up at the Pasta Party
