Thanksgiving weekend was one to remember! The weather was amazing - hot and sunny. People were out in force enjoying the weather. Logan, Emily and I went to Canterbury Hills in Ancaster for a hike (Sara was doing a massage course in Toronto - pretty agonizing considering the weather and the fact she was indoors!). The trails had a couple of beautiful waterfalls - here's Logan posing at the biggest one, very cool.
We went exploring and followed the trail deep into the forest. We only covered a few kilometres but it looks like a cool place to do a trail run in the future.
Logan did a couple of tris this summer - the final one in the later part of September at Lakeside. John Salt and the Multisport series do a fantastic job with the kids and the focus is on participation and fun. The kids really enjoyed themselves and it was apparent nobody cared what place they came in - they were definitely there to have some fun!
At Lakeside pre-race they always take a picture of all the kids together. Logan's on the far left, second row with all the other 8 and 9 year olds (Logan turns 8 at the end of October and did fine with the older kids). Check out how many kids were in his wave! The swim was 100m long, followed by a 2.5km bike and finally a 800m run.
Here he is coming down the home stretch. The girl on the right is a local kid who happily ran back and forth to support the participants - a great atmosphere all around.
