Duncan is registered to run the Kids Y Marathon at Ottawa Race Weekend. While he completed the mandatory mileage accumulation over the last few months, Duncan wanted to run one or two solo races beforehand. Enter the Smiths Falls Spring Fling Running Thing. The race offered a 2K category – the perfect distance for Duncan to run out of our sight!
Duncan’s recap of the 2K goes like this…
“I got to the race, and a really nice lady gave me my timing chip. She even helped put it on my leg. I had fun meeting new people while I ran, but I don’t remember any of their names. The trail was bumpy, kinda like the roads in Almonte. I jumped over two really big water puddles, they were muddy! I saw the bike people, and the volunteers. I ran really fast, and only took one walk break. I saw Joe from Zoom in his orange vest, then I saw Dad on one side yelling “Go Go Go”, and Pierce clapping. I ran fast over the timing mats. The girl took my chip, and gave me a BIG MONSTER medal!! I also got a Dairy Queen card for a free ice cream treat. Too bad it was not hot today, cause I would have eaten an ice cream sandwich. I had a blueberry bagel, a banana, and water. Pierce was really cold, Dad walked us back to the car to warm up, and wait for you and Mira.”
