It was a good morning for a race - it stopped raining as I was driving down, then picked up again on kilometre 9 along with the wind, but we did it! Those poor folks running the full marathon though. Anyway, me and my mum did the 10km in just over 2 hours. Not bad for someone who’s slacked off on her training.

For those not familiar with BC, here’s Boundary Bay.



We started on the left hand side of the map, east side of Tsawwassen ((/təˈwɑːsən/; from North Straits Salish: [səˈwɑːsən] or [tsəˈwɑːsən], meaning "facing the ocean")), where that little dip in the shoreline is, then curved north and east around the bay. For the Americans in the audience, Point Roberts is an American exclave like Alaska and a few points in Minnesota.

Some picture from the 10K shamble race:

Birds flying in formation overhead. Also, at the 5km turn around, I heard someone firing a shotgun at the passing birds. In a Canadian provincial park. Like, what the hell is that even.




The start of the race and the top of my head - the dude on the bike was medical, I think.



here is the sun shining through a gap in the clouds over the bay
