At least I didn't fall down today. I guess the training wheels I attached to the "Clown" Nike's must have helped. Another day of possible: rain. hail, sun, cloud, snow, sleet, thunder, lightning, or sand storm. I was feeling pretty blah as I staggered out the door and plodded the first km down to the river. Soon, the muscles started to warm up and I was in my stride, headed towards Crawford Ranch. The loop to the ranch was 13km so I wanted to go 17km on my second loop to hit 30km by lunch time. Sue had warned me that I shouldn't mess with "The Alsatian" but that was the way I headed. At 8.5km on the second loop I was still 1/2 km from Fosters. We would meet again, but not today.

After leaving Michael and the gang in Scranton, Pennsyvania, Avatar Marathon Martin made his way to the honeymoon capital of Canada, Niagara Falls. He took a trip on the Maid of the Mist and met many tourist from around the world. They were handing out blue rain ponchos for the trip, but luckily Marathon Martin is laminated so he didn't need one. In the afternoon he visted the wedding chapel where Pam and Jim got married. Avatar Marathon Martin isn't married himself. He would just like to meet a nice laminated girl who had similar interests to him: Ultrarunning, old Dr. Who episodes and Nickelback. Here's hoping!
