I did a talk about triathlon on Saturday and ChiRunning on Sunday, following the likes of Tommy Europe and Royce Gracie. There was a steady flow of folks around the booth the entire weekend and had a good following for both talks. Some of the folks even laughed at my jokes. What more can you ask for?
For the show, I partnered with the good folks at Aerobics First. Not only did they provide great company for the booth all weekend long, they also provided some cool shoes for folks to try and lots of expertise. A huge thank you to Luke and Dawn!
One of the many things I loved about is that most folks nod and say hi when you cross them on the street, in a hall or they come by your booth. It’s a small thing but it’s nice.
I also enjoyed a slower pace of life. No one seems to be in a hurry. And they loved to chat just for the sake of chatting. That was nice as well.
I got to reconnect with some old friends and saw a lot of Mount Allison graduates. So many old connections, so little time! Good thing I’m heading back shortly…
For the folks in Ottawa, Mike Stashin and I will be doing an indoors ChiRunning development session in late February. This session will be around two hours long but otherwise very similar to our free Monday night sessions that we used to hold at Mooney’s Bay for the past two years.
There will be a $20 charge to cover admission and all the proceeds will be given to a worthy local cause. Stay tuned for all the details!
