Terry Fox Run

Monday, September 20, 2004
It was the Terry Fox run this past weekend. My friends and I ran the 8km and finished it in 45mins. I thought we did very well. Especially since one of my friends came down with viral labyrinthitis a week ago and her balance was still off-kilter on Sunday. She either has extraordinary will power and determination (true), or it must be the steriods she has been taking. It didn't feel like 8km though - more like 6 or 7km, but hey, who's counting?

The run marked a certain tentative return to normality for me. Things are still the same in some ways, but it looks like things will carry on. I am still praying.
