    She has given so much of her time and effort and energy into Take Me Outside On Wednesday night I drove Sarah down to Toronto so that she could fly back to Halifax for personal reasons I met Sarah about a decade ago and I have rarely met a person that can be so giving caring and understanding There are so many memories wrapped up in this friendship concerts hiking trips road trips sailing on Koshlong enjoying the winter sun bbq ed sausages in Halifax True friendship isn t about being there when it s convenient it s about being there when it s not Anonymous The quote above resonates for me not many friends would give up almost half a year to do what she s done There are endless other things people would rather do than spend 4 months of winter in an RV This wasn t convenient for her But she did it anyway And it s hard to know how to say thank you I am forever grateful for this friendship it s ups and downs and everything in between There is more to be said but not in a blog This is simply to say thank you out loud The run continues I will be solo for awhile It will involve driving the RV ahead 25 km and hitchhiking back to my starting point to run back to the RV and repeating this in the afternoon And if today is any indication as to what s to come it should be an interesting few weeks 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

    than just making music like many other camps the social dimension was integral and fundamental to everything else that happened throughout the course of the day Hookups breakups and other such gossip moved quicker than my trombone slide ever could I digress playing music was what we were passionate about Creating molding and shaping that music outside over the lake was something pretty special There are certain combinations that just work Salt and pepper Avocadoes and lime My personal favourite popcorn and m m s But without a doubt music and the outdoors seems like the perfect combo at least to me Hearing live music at an outdoor venue can t be beat Just as much as our culture has been shaped by our connection to nature so too has it been shaped by our connection to music Being able to experience music outside whether creating it or listening to it has a unique ability to energize the soul It is a combination that I wish I could be exposed to more often simply for that reason So to all the music lovers out there enjoy a summer of sweet tones that find their way through the breeze to the core of your soul The quick lowdown on the running side of things Yesterday was a long day The legs are readjusting to the routine and still need a bit of time to get back and feel the way they did through Quebec Today is a day off being spent relaxing and getting some errands done 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 Blog Tuesday

    the torch relay prior to the Calgary Olympics in 1988 During his talk Harris called up three volunteer students who ran a distance that measured approximately 100 metres I have run that stretch 32 000 times already To get across Canada I have to run that distance another 43 000 times he said Harris explained that when the students returned to school in the fall he would still be running across the country The experience has made him value the outdoors that much more I know it s true for people that it s good to be outside he said Harris spoke about the rising rates of obesity and how studies show children spend many hours indoors playing video games and other activities Science tells us adults spend 93 per cent of our lives inside he said Science also tells us the more time you spend outside the better you ll do in school said Harris Following his presentation students had the opportunity to ask Harris questions about his cross country initiative Harris told the students he runs 42 kilometres every day and uses a ferry to cross large bodies of water Is it fun to run across Canada asked one student It s a lot of fun but also a lot of work Sometimes I get tired Harris said He told the students the most exciting part of the challenge was stopping into different schools and visiting with children To date Harris has visited about 65 schools and spoken to 17 000 students A map outlining his journey and his stops can be found on his website along with a daily blog tracking his progress Written by Angelica Blenich Article originally appeared in the Haliburton Echo on June 20 2011 From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday
