  1. Thank you Angela for oranizing an event such as this. Imagine, Nanaimo's first and only marathon!
    I am sure that we can all attest to the efforts you (and your helpers) put into this race. I really appreciated the snacks you provided for us in between laps, the first-aid treatment for my blistered foot, and for the hot chocolate and blanket at the end of the run. I must say that the finisher's medal is by far the most meaningful in my collection. This race had wonderful overtones of grass-roots!

    I look forward to the 2010 edition of the run.

    p.s. thanks for cheering us on Beatrice!
