Better late than never: the Terry Fox Run, Abu Dhabi
It was quite something, seeing 15,000 people turn out along Abu Dhabi's Corniche for the Terry Fox Run last Friday. Wait, actually, the Friday before that. I donned some rollerblades for the event, and got a little choked up by the sight of all those Canadian flags. A group of Emiratis volunteered at the event, handing out water and directions along the 8.5km route.
Note: A move to my new staff apartment, the resulting lack of internet access, moving from being an sub to a reporter and a much-anticipated visit from my dad all add up to not very much blogging. But I will be back, for those of you who check here faithfully. Thanks for that, by the way.
