Hi Alex (Runman),

My name is Peter and I found your blog when I was looking for information about the PEI marathon. I really enjoyed reading it and I hope that I will have a chance to meet you sometime. I am from Fredericton but my family has a cottage in Keppoch so we are over to PEI on a regular basis. I will be in PEI to do the Half Marathon as a partner/guide for a blind lady who is participating.

I am not nearly as fast a runner as you but I sure enjoy the sport. best wishes.

Hi Peter,

Thanx for the point to Alex's blog. Alex & I work registration for the PEI Marathon so you'll likely meet us when you & Myra pick up your race kits. I think you'll find it a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday, this is a very well organized marathon and the feedback from off-Islanders, especially those who have been to a lot of marathons in different places, has always been really positive. If either of you have questions beforehand about the Marathon or Island that I can answer I'd be more than happy to.

Alex's PEI Marathon experiences, photos etc. are at,

See you in October!
