At the end of June 2018, I retired from a job I’d enjoyed for over twenty years and left a city I’d lived in since childhood to start a new life on Vancouver Island. Sidney, a town of about 12,000 folks, is about four and a half thousand kilometers west and several thousand light years away from Toronto. This blog is a way to share our transition and ongoing journey.

Sidney Seaside Run
At the start of the Sidney Seaside Run the weather looked a bit iffy but thankfully the rain held off. It was a very low keyed event with 217 participants, compared to 2600 entrants in the Spring Runoff 8k and 7500 in the Waterfront 10k I did in Toronto earlier this year.
I completed the 8k walk in a personal best time, with no ill effects or stiffness the next day. The course is fairly flat and well marshaled.
