Bit of a strange day today. I arrived at the Shouldice Pool, expecting to meet runner Michael but no sign of him. I ran east along the Calgary pathways and at the 4km mark was stopped by a runner coming the other way. He said that Micheal had stopped him and asked if he had seen Marathon Martin. I pushed on and at the 6km mark was stopped by two women. They said that runner Michael had told them that if they saw Marathon Martin to tell him that he would be at the Running Room. I arrived at 9.30am at Eau Claire Market and there was Michael. Don joined us and we did a short out and back before returning to Shouldice Pool. I was meeting a group from Spray Lake Sawmills and I had to get back to Cochrane.

Christmas was great and I received some wonderful gifts. My three favourites were a Buff with Llama's on it, a box of Walkers Shortbread from Scotland (all gone!!) and a coffee cup. It was a very special coffee cup Sue found. There's a shop in Banff called Cows and it sells all things Cowy. Sayings on the T-shirts include "Cowy Potter", "The Mootrix" and "Cowatar". Brilliant. Sue found the "Dunder Moofflin: Paper Cowpany" coffee cup. This is a one of a kind.
