Achilles St. Patrick’s Day 1K Kids, 5K & 10K Races, Toronto, ON

Gord and I had signed up to do the 5km walk in the Achilles St. Patrick’s Day 1K Kids, 5K & 10K Races ... it was to start and end outside the Steam Whistle Brewing at The Roundhouse this morning.

Because of COVID-19, it was cancelled.  We were able to pick up our race kits on Friday and yesterday ... I got ours yesterday.

Everyone was encouraged to do the run/walk on our own ... so that's what Gord and I did this morning.  I wore my festive socks ... they're comfy!

It was a beautiful day for a walk ... sunny with a bit of a chill.  We walked to Garrison Crossing and crossed over the Fort York.

We walked through Coronation Park.

Then we walked the trails in Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail (I love this park!).

We got to the 5km point at the bridge in Trillium Park.

We earned our medals!

As we were leaving the park, a fox crossed our path!

We cut through Exhibition Place and came across three police officers on horseback.

By the time we got home again, I had walked 7.4km.

Such is life these days of massive cancellations. Good too see you got your walk in. What a beautiful day. Well done.
