Happy Canada D’eh! – 5K

Celebrating our Country

What an amazing and patriotic Canada Day we had!!

John and I ran the Canada D’eh 5K finishing with not a great time but we had a blast doing it, sometimes that counts more than time. 🙂

The Start/Finish line is outside the main gates of Historic Fort Malden.

Fort Malden, formally known as Fort Amherstburg

It was built in 1795 by Britain in order to ensure the security of British North America against any potential threat of American Invasion.

Visitors can step back in time and get a glimpse of what military life was like almost 200 years ago.

The Fort played an important role in both the War of 1812 and the Rebellion of 1837. The site, located along the Detroit River, includes original earthworks, restored barracks and an interactive museum.

With the support of our Daughter, Rebecca, we had a pretty good day celebrating our country and earning some pretty sweet bling!

We received a t-shirt and a kick butt medal!! It was a maple leaf with Wayne Gretzky on the front, can’t get more Canadian than that!

As if all of that wasn’t Canadian Enough… Along the route we ran into Bob and Doug McKenzie handing out timbits, and were offered a butter tart and Maple cookie at the finish line!

What a great family fun day!
