It has been a while and we have covered some serious ground since the last update! Today's run took us just past Truro, NS. We are heading East on highway 104 towards Pictou where we will catch the Caribou Ferry across to P.E.I. on Friday, June 24 (Happy Birthday Dad!). I have run 24 consecutive marathons as of today and 35 marathons since starting!
We have been so lucky to have had so many generous folks provide us with accommodations over the last month. Check them out here!
For this province, The Run to Live has traveled West on highway 105 from North Sydney to the Canso Causeway where we linked up with highway 104 West. From there, we made it as far as Antigonish and traveled South on highway 7 towards Halifax/Dartmouth. After making it as far as those cities, we started North on highway 102 towards Truro where we are staying for tonight!!
We had an incredible stay with The Stonehouse's in Dartmouth a few days ago. They are incredible people and went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of. They fed us, provided showers, washed our clothes, drove us around to do errands and sent us away with a full fridge!! We cannot thank them enough.
A couple days before Dartmouth, the time came to say goodbye to one of our team members, who headed back to Toronto from Halifax Airport. Keith was an enormous help over the first month and a half and his commitment to our goals was incredible. Thank you to Keith for your help and taking the time away from your life to make this venture successful.
We have had a great time in this province, but we are looking forward to having province number 2 behind us in just a couple of days.
Scott and TRTL
