    7 months doing what she s doing is incredible This run simply wouldn t be happening without her And second it is Rob who is the true inspiration in these student s lives He is the one interacting with them on a daily basis and encouraging them to be outside and active These letters and pictures have put me on top of the world today and for that I am thankful But more so I am ecstatic that there are so many people out there like Rob who care so much about getting children and youth outside It truly makes me feel like a difference is being made Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image Click to open image 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

    why people were riding her tail when she was trying to pull over there was her answer She dropped me off early this afternoon to start running and drove to New Glasgow to see if she could get it fixed Hiding from the wind while waiting for my pick up Sarah s perspective after driving around to 4 different places she found a dealership that had the time and could deal with it She sat all afternoon waiting for the RV to be fixed Seems the wiring had been altered and it took them about 3 hours to find the problem and fix it Well almost fix it My perspective By 10 k my legs didn t want to go any further By 20 k I was eagerly awaiting a text from Sarah to tell me she was on her way By 25 k I was cold hungry and my body did not want to go any further At 30 k I took an exit and hid under a tractor trailor until Sarah was done at the dealer Tomorrow is a day off woohoo We re back at the dealership for 8 am to get the final touches done Currently the signals are working but we re driving around with the hazards on because the brake lights aren t working The rest of the day will be spent running errands and trying to stay warm New Glasgow has a YMCA so we re contemplating a day pass so we can shower as the last one was at the terminal of the ferry in Newfoundland 9 days ago We just launched the TMO Challenge on our website If you re involved with the education system in any way and would be willing to pass the link around we d love to

    ever since Today as we ran together we swapped stories and he shared how his students have really latched on to this run in a way he didn t expect He is one of those teachers every student should have a heart of gold and a passion for education that exemplifies what it means to truly facilitate a student s learning experience He joined me for about 14 km in the morning and it didn t take long to feel like we were kindred spirits What other guys in their 30 s both love curling and owned a 1970 VW Jennifer is a mother of three two of whom I met today Jennifer recently turned 40 and decided to commit to 40 philanthropic acts events in honour of her 40th year You can check out some of the things she has already done at her blog She ran with me for about 9 k this afternoon and we had a good chance to chat about some of the things we re both passionate about She did well for staying engaged in conversation as trucks and cars whizzed by us it s not the most calming experience running the TCH It didn t take long to sense the good energy coming from Jen I would imagine most people around her feel it too a true gift to share Fleur and Blythe ran with Rob and I for a bit through Antigonish and it felt great to feel like we were running as a team After a brief pit stop at Timmie s we showed the girls the RV and introduced them to Sammy and Koona We gave our best tour of the RV we could and they were polite enough to tell us it didn t even smell that bad Jen

    we try to convey how many hours are spent in front of screens by youth their age With elementary students 45 hours a week can be sometimes hard to comprehend So in attempting to draw a parallel I simply ask them to raise their hands if they like McDonalds A sea of arms spring into the air I then ask them if they think it would be healthy to eat McDonald s for breakfast lunch and dinner everyday Even though they love their nuggets they know it s not healthy and they agree And so I try to draw the comparison that eating processed food 3 times a day is like spending 7 hours a day in front of screens it s just not healthy Crossing the Causeway Officially back on Mainland We live in a digital age and it s naïve to think that will ever change There are so many great things that have come from technology but as with a lot of things in life moderation is the key That s not to sound preachy but the weight of the teeter totter is being dominated by one end In general we know that eating fast food every meal isn t healthy We know that too much alcohol can be unhealthy We know that the occasional lottery ticket is fine but spending every night playing Texas hold em might pose a problem Hopefully we can see that screen time isn t a bad thing in and of itself it could just use more balance with how much time we re spending doing other things like being outside No snow on the shoulders MUST be spring This morning I ran 10 km with my fancy red ski jacket It was wear red day at Ferris View Elementary a school
