A 10K that I was not supposed to run ! Nadia, Kiren, Lala & myself decided to drive to Montreal from Kingston on race day. I was registered for the half and the other 3 for 10K. However, Lala got us late in the morning and when we got into Montreal, we took a wrong turn and got late for the race. So since the only race left was the 10K I decided to run with them. In the end it turned out to be quite a fun affair. Most of the race we just walked throwing water on each other and chatting away. No wonder we were the last four people to finish the race. After the race we went to China Town for lunch and then drove back to Kingston. All in all, a fun trip. It was nice running with family for a change!
