The Run Before the Storm - Atlantic Vet College 5K at Brackley Beach


"A beautiful out and back course from the Brackley Beach parking lot towards Robinson's Island."

It was cloudy and 4 degrees and no wind.

The calm before the storm. Hurricane Noel is coming to Atlantic Canada tonight.

The out and back course on Gulf Shore Parkway.

Lots of dogs and lots of vet college students.

He came in 7th out of 59 runners include walkers and time of 20:22.

Lawrence Brown came first and Marcos came second they both from vet college.
