    of doing this Can I actually do this What good will come of this I have little desire to draw too many comparisons but being out on the TCH for 5 6 hours every day I can attest to the fact that you live in your head And you ask a lot of questions to yourself over the course of running that daily marathon As I ran up to the monument I was overwhelmed I felt humbled to be in the spirit of this great Canadian I felt privileged to share my moment of arrival with my dad And I felt inspired Terry Fox has inspired millions of Canadians Every student learns his story in school and there are likely thousands and thousands of projects posters and written pieces of work dedicated to what he did for our country Although he has become one of the most prominent Canadians in our history and is often called a hero Terry Fox was a quiet hero On the monument it even alludes to him not knowing what all the attention and fuss was for Terry Fox challenges us not just students but every one of us He challenges us to make a difference to have something you believe in strongly and live that belief There may be questions along the way perhaps even moments of doubt And those are the moments we can think of his determination and perseverance in moving forward He inspires us to embody the spirit with which he ran across this country in living out our own convictions He inspires us to become heroes within the communities we live in From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6

    smoke up front The issues with the RV have been many and although I have grown attached to it and wanted it to make it to the west coast a decision was made to leave it and get another vehicle Today my dad and I found another RV and although it is equally as old as the Citation it is in good shape and hoping that it can make it with ease to BC I have so many thoughts and so little time to share tonight as I m sitting in a Chapters using wireless and the store is closing soon I am so thankful to have my dad on board for a bit It will be such a nice treat to give my thumb a rest from hitchhiking But more than that I am excited to share this time with him It has been over 15 years since we will have spent this kind of concentrated time together I m making fun of him already for his cooking abilities when we were younger he would cook dinner once a week for our family but it was either pancakes or muffins for dinner So he has a learning curve over the next couple of weeks I think he s up for the challenge The 83 Glendale We head back east tomorrow morning and I will begin the 3 day run back into Thunder Bay I am anticipating the Terry Fox Memorial that I ll likely hit on Thursday I have enjoyed the weekend and have seen some old friends who live in the city so it s been good to take a break and regroup More to come but for now back to the road From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day

  • Day 185-188 – 142.8 km (total – 4313.2 km) | Take Me Outside
    I have likely crossed paths with over 70 cyclists going across the country Jean and his buggy no support crew One of my favourite moments though came yesterday afternoon Just before I finished the day s run I saw someone walking eastward technically south semantics As I approached I saw his name on his buggy it was Jean Beliveau Jean Beliveau has been walking around the world for the last 11 years He started in Montreal in 2000 and has walked over 75 000 km promoting peace for children www wwwalk org He is on his last stretch of this epic journey back in his home country after a decade of walking various countries on different continents I ll admit it felt a little surreal to be standing next to this man on the TCH near White Lake in Northern Ontario His humility and humour made him seem like just another person on the road And in many ways he is He has garnered world wide attention for his efforts and has done well with media attention But out in the vast remoteness of Northern Ontario he was just another guy trying to do something he believes in In fact the majority of us who are making our way across the country in some form are doing it because of convictions we have My friend Otto s partner Jen who found me on the TCH and said hi At the end of a 20 minute conversation with Jean on the TCH I extended my arm to shake hands He obliged but then asked if he could give me a hug Here was a man who has walked the world for 11 years and has met thousands of individuals He walks between 30 and 40 km a day which is grueling

    have felt very disconnected from friends and family This stretch between Sault Ste Marie and Thunder Bay is proving to be one of the more challenging parts of this run Although it s the TCH and it s summer there is not a lot of traffic Yesterday took three and a half hours to get a ride back to the RV after running 44 km The days have been long and most of them hot But the payoff has been running along Superior The views are amazing and I have been able to stay in a couple of provincial parks ending my long days with a nice swim in Superior My friend Ginny Hudson who worked at Wanakita currently works as a naturalist at Lake Superior Provincial Park She drove by me on Saturday as I was trying to hitch a ride and ended up helping me out with getting to my starting point Tobin Day is a friend of a friend who I had not met before but on Monday a car pulled over on the TCH and minutes later Tobin was out in her running gear and joined me for about 5k There are so many stories that I will eventually share To be honest the mental fatigue is wearing on me and I am determined to get to Thunder Bay as quickly as possible I am thankful for the emails that I am beginning to read Thank you for the continued support and I will update again the next time I find some free wifi From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6 km total 7524 5 km Sunday 23 October 2011 00 00 Lake Superior Video
