When I started running I used to wonder who everyone was waving at as they passed (I never got "the wave" when I was walking... maybe a smile...or was that a grimace I saw?)

I'm doing the Winnipeg one (my second Res Run) - it's a great way to get you out of bed on New Year's Day...(even if I decide to crawl back in once I'm finished) :) .

Besides, the post race goodies were awesome last year!! (Tim Horton's coffee and Tall Grass Prairie(?) cin buns!)
