Defeat Depression Day!!!

Move for Mental Health

So while my running tweeples and peoples were racing or attacking their long runs today, my daughter and I went to the local Defeat Depression Event 🙂

This is a 1/3/5km run or walk.  Since I am gimpy, we walked.

This event means alot to me, having the “fraternal twins” of mental illness (anxiety and depression). 

The weather was 50/50, the threat of showers hanging over, but what a great group of people to walk around Downtown Halifax with! 

Earlier this week I cycled with the man in my life.  Well he ran, I cycled 😉 

We went around the beautiful Lake Banook in Dartmouth.  It has a run/bike train around it which is great.  It is also the home of many canoe clubs.  They also have the Dragon Boat Festival here every year!

I caught this beautiful shot once we hit the other side of the Lake.  It felt great to be out and speedy…even if it was on two wheels.  lol

I finally see the ortho specialist Wednesday morning and I can’t wait!!  I am surgical, of that I am certain.  So it’s just a matter of when and where.  I’ll go anywhere in this Province to get it done!

Hoping to get out to the Public Gardens later for some relaxation and maybe some awesome pics 🙂

Tonight is the regular #RunAtChat on Twitter.  Awesome runners and fun chats.  A good way to end a Sunday Night.

Until next time….
