We finally have some media attention building. Our first interview since getting to the Rock, was by a sports writer named Matt for a local newspaper in Gander. He was very cool to deal with, and he even promised us good weather after the long weekend, because it was tradition for the island.
We have continued slowly but surely towards the West, and have found ourselves in the Grand Falls-Windsor area. On Tuesday, we drove ahead to this city and had a small media event. We met Roger (a city councellor & VOCM radio interviewer), a CBC Radio representative came out to ask us a few questions and a local newspaper journalist came out as well.
We were also joined by the local Canadian Cancer Society representatives, which was super cool of them. Francine brought her daughter Emily out who had made a sign for us which was so cute. It is great to have a support network building out here!!
Physically, the foot is back on track and feeling great! However, in my recovery, I changed my gait a little too much and am now dealing with the outcome of overcompensation. My IT Band on the same leg is giving me some pain whenever the Quads contract (which is pretty often when you are talking about running). It will get better though, at least I can keep moving in a forward direction with this pain, unlike the foot issue.
We are half way through the province now and I am getting excited to get closer to the Ferry. I love this province, but let's get serious, we have a goal here!!
I hope everyone back home is enjoying our journey, through our pictures and videos.
