Where did the time go? I had planned to write this recap but now almost three weeks have past and I’m finally getting to it- that’s what happens when you have a busy husband and a baby. Anyways first you can read about our Montreal stay and the RnR Montreal Expo Recap.
When we first planned to head up to Montreal for the race the plan was for all of us to go to the starting line with Neil and then we would take the Metro up to the finish line. Well once we arrived there we decided that it would be better for Neil to just head to the start by himself and in the end that was the best idea since the Metro was filled to the brim with runners.
At around 9:30 Edith, my parents and I walked up to Mont Royal Metro to meet up with my friend Allie who planned to watch the race with us. Once we located each other we headed over to the finish line to wait for Neil and watch the race. I lucked out the E slept in the Ergo for the first hour and then she wanted out but for the second hour she just hung out in my arms mesmerized by the runners. Unfortunately due to the large number of runners it took Neil forever to finally get across the start line and by the time he reached us (we were at around kilometer 19) E was ready to eat so I didn’t really get to see Neil run and E didn’t get the chance to cheer on her daddy.
I was really impressed with how many people came out to watch the race and cheer everyone on. This was a new experience for me since the only races that I have been to have been local 5 and 10k’s which is pretty much just runners and a few family members and the VCM which had some people watching/cheering but it was nothing like this race.
