Sally and Tia finished their first 5 km walk for the Heart & Stroke Foundation

That is one happy walker!

At the end of 5 km's last Saturday in Richmond in her first walking event, the Strides for Stroke walk in Richmond Hill, Sally couldn't have been happier.  Tia and I had a blast as well.

A few minutes before at the 4 km walk she asked the question, "Are we there yet?"  I assured her yes and that once she crossed the finish line she would want to do it again...

OK, maybe not this year.  But we have other fund raising activities planned for the rest of this year for our fundraising for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario. 

Sally didn't walk alone.  Tia and I walked with her.  As you can see though she had a birds eye view of the proceedings.  A real princess that one.

Just before the sky opened up on our way back to the car.  Yes, the rain held off for the entire event.  If she could speak..."Hurry up you two, I'm tired....I want to go home"

Thank you for the donations.  We enjoyed the Strides for Stroke walk and plan to do it again next year.  Maybe we will even run it.

Donations still being accepted for the Heart & Stroke Foundation at our secure donation site:  DONTE TO HEART & STROKE HERE

Until next time...

    I saw the pix of Sally at the 4KM & thought of her comments after she saw me playing around at the 5 mile mark of the Jamaica 10K. She said...why did you stop? If you had kept running you would have gotten the trophy for your age group!
    My answer: when you are 63 years old, been running for 33 years, in Jamaica doing a run, somehow another trophy just isn't why you are there!! Now she knows what I was talking about.
    You must've been in the USA we call the race/walk a 5K or 10K, then we mark the miles!? :-)
    Then you Canadians say Marathon which is 26.2 miles, and mark the Ks
    Go figure!!??
