Quebec City post 5

Went running today. Just 3 miles.  First time since I am here that I go 2 days in a row.  I had less pain so that is good.  It is very humid here and I forgot to bring water and that was NOT good.  I got dehydrated.  3 little miles....that is how bad it is here. Hot and holly humid!

I signed up for another race...because that is what one does while they are having groin pain.
The Awesome 80's Run!
I will run the 10k.  Cannot pass this.  It is in Pasadena and I love running there.  It looks like a lot of fun, I am a kid of the 80s.  The medal is in cassette tape shape ! 80s cover band entertainment!
My brother arrives tomorrow!  Looking forward to seeing him and my nieces!
We are having a party for Will's birthday at an indoor climbing place, should be interesting!
Last couple of days have been busy seeing friends.
I saw my close friends from High School last night for a gals only dinner.  That was nice, I never get to do that at home.  Bill was nice and he stayed home with the boys so I could speak just French and be with my girlfriends for a few hours.  We have been friends for 31 years!

Today I met Marie-Christine and her kids at a beautiful park.
Yep she is taller than me! 

Also today my cousin Genevieve arrived in town from Toronto!
She has 3 kids and they speak English so it is a perfect fit with my boys!!
The Cousins!!
I managed to loose 3 lbs since I have been here...who does that on vacation...someone with a terrible stomach that's who.
Happy Oh Canada Day to my Canadian friends!!!
Here in Quebec it is moving day!
Everyone who rents a place to live and wants to move does that on the 1st of July.  Yes It is nuts.

I've been really enjoying your Canadian posts... only just over a month until my turn :)
I've been to Montreal but never to QC, now that is definitely on our list to visit soon.
Enjoy the rest of your visit!

I'm so sorry the groin pain is continuing, but I am GLAD it isn't spoiling your time "out of exile" back in Canada. It seems from all the great pictures that you are seeing lots of loved ones and friends.

I wish I could lose three pounds on vacation, but I hear you on the terrible stomach. No fun.

You are sure having a great time! Running in humid weather is not fun. I hope your pain continues to get better. It is very hot here in California too. 81% at 8:30pm is not fun for a night run!

Sorry about your stomach. That's not fun at all.

I just saw an email about the 80's race and am thinking of signing up too. Looks fun!

I'm so glad you are posting from home, it's so fun to see you enjoying your home and your family and friends.

Glad you are having a great time with your friends.

Happy Oh Cananda day to our awesome northern neighbors. I had never heard of moving day before, that does sound like nuts.

Enjoy your visit.....and remember the rest of us poor souls who deal with that humidity crap all summer. Nice to see old friends....oui ?????

Glad you were able to reconnect with some old (and tall!) friends - that is wonderful!

You look like you are having a blast with your friends! I'm having a hard time getting in any runs on vacation. So great job getting in two days in a row!
