A countdown of sorts and A marathon record holder

It's 99 days to Christmas.  How do I know? I have seen the 100 days to go to the World Juniors held in Vancouver and Victoria B.C.  Can not wait.  

A World record fell in the mens marathon yesterday in Berlin, Germany.  Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya set the record of 2:01:39 beaking A record by 78 seconds.  The record has yet to be ratified though.

End of August? Aaak

Good grief its the end of August already.  I don't know were it went.  CFL season is ramping up with the Labor Day games this weekend, loads of baseball, I met an Olympian, lots of hot days and bit of rainy cool days. Feels like fall is hear too.  Leaves are turning color.  September is going to get good.

So I met an Olympian.

This past Thursday was burgers to beat MS day at A&W.  For every teen burgers sold, 2 bucks went to MS research.  Met Christine Sinclair (two time bronze medalist in soccer - 2012 and 2016).  Her mom has MS.  Also met Patrycia.  She is Also battling MS and the hardesy working and tireless fundraiser. Got a pic of the both

of them.
