March 20th, 2007

I woke up to the sound of rain pounding against my window at 4am. Luckily, when I got up at 6am, the rain had stopped! However, I couldn’t help but notice the trees really seemed to be tossing in the wind. As I started out on the Seawall, the wind was at my back and it was fairly enjoyable. But I was a bit worried about the last leg of my skate since I’d be heading straight into the gusts.
So around Science world and up past City TV I went. Once past Science World, The wind was in my face, but I was somewhat protected by the buildings. I really wasn’t until after I crossed the Burrard Bridge into downtown that the wind became a significant factor. As strong as the wind was, it made for a great work out! Other than snow, I think I’ve faced all off natures’ elements that I can expect when I come across the country!


I spoke to Princess Margaret Hospital and the University of Alberta yesterday. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to begin accepting donations later today or tomorrow! I’ll be sure to make an announcement on the main page as well as facebook and myspace so everyone knows when the form is ready!


Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I have a few people e-mail me yesterday asking if they can join me when I come blading through their city. Absolutely! I encourage EVERYONE to come out and blade, skate, run or bike with me when I’m in your area! The more people we can get involved, the more impact this 5 month journey will have! If you are wondering when I’ll be in your area, just send me an e-mail and I’ll try to give you a better estimate. Obviously I can’t guarantee the exact day, but I’ll give you an idea and you can keep an eye on the website as the date approaches.
