A little update and a good cause to check out

Hi. Well it has been an interesting few days here in Ottawa with a Spring blast of winter to remind us we all live in Canada...So running outside took a break and eating Cheetos and drinking beer became the new training tool. No it doesn't work!! Darn.

Anyway in a couple of days I will be running the Kanata to Orleans route which will be around 50km's. Since I plan on using the Nathan Vapor Wrap I will hold off to do the product review after that run. I will then post it over on my other blog www.peterlariviere.blogspot.ca and add a link here.

So then am I just adding this post as filler....well not really. I also want to tell you about a home in Havana, that houses physically and developmentally challenged people. This is a video that will tell you more about the home:

The gathering of funds for this project is being spearheaded by CanBiCuba (http://www.canbicuba.com/) and you can get in touch with them if you think you would like to help. And while you are on the site have a look at some of the cycle touring offerings. Joanne and I are really considering taking part. I just have to figure out how I can run and bike during a tour like this!!!!

I will be adding a post soon on a proposed route, or at least the start and finish points with some target locations along the way.And I will update you on my attempts to learn Spanish - It is not pretty but then my English isn't great either and it is my first language!!!!

So that is all for now.
