Last Sunday after 13 weeks of training a group, of "fitter than they were before" Islanders participated in the Vancouver Sun Run. With more than 49,000 competitors, the Sun Run is one of the largest 10km road races in North America. Being a part of something so large felt amazing. The weather was fantastic, the scenery along the course was great and the city hills felt like nothing compared to Bowen's. Everyone crossed the finish line in one piece! (The Cocoa West team even made it in the top third.) Many thanks to everyone who made it so much fun and especially to the leaders of the Sun Run training clinic who fearlessly led the way since January for a whopping 35 runners, sharing their knowledge, inspiration and enthusiasm and making it all happen. 2012 anybody? In the photo are some of the Bowen runners who took part.
