Sunday May 30th, 2010 is the 46th anniversary of the Calgary Marathon. A few thousand people will be going for their own Everest, whether its the Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10km, 5km or 1km race. I won't be running but will be volunteering at the "finish line" where I will see the smiles, the hugs and hear words that will evoke emotion!
One similarity I never expected, would be weather related! While the amounts are vastly different between Everest and here, nevertheless, it is snow! These are not the weather conditions you would expect or hope for, for the end of May in Calgary on a big race day.
I wish the best for everyone tomorrow as you live out your passion and conquer your summit! I look forward to being at the "finish line" to celebrate with you!
