We are having a string of very good days for running. It's been starting off a little cool, -6C to -2C, but then warms up to +5C to +10C. In fact, the forecast for next Wednesday is +20C. That is a little warm. Today, I parked across from Shouldice Pool and made good time to the Good Earth Cafe. At 9.30am I had arranged to meet Lawyer Don. Don is a partner at Scott Hall, Barristers and Solicitors and he had run with me on the 200th marathon. There are 75 people in the firm and he sent an email to all of them to see if they would support Matrathon Quest 250 / Right To Play. Also, he's also running a full marathon with me next Wednesday and is looking for sponsors. Some people say they'll help, he's doing it.

Avatar Marathon Martin ran his 200th marathon in Malta, Montana. The town was so named after an official from Great Northern Railways spun a globe and let his finger stop on where ever. It happened to be the island of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea. Marathon Martin is a well respected paleontologist and has been involved in digs in Ireland, Namibia and Drumheller. After the marathon, he visited the Phillips County Museum, site of a number of amazing finds. There he spent time with Elvis the brachylophosaurus, so called because he has a "pristine pelvis". The other brachylophosaurs at the museum were Roberta, Peanut and Leonardo.
