I’m heading home to Antigonish to

I’m heading home to Antigonish to participate in the Highland Games 5mile Road Race Friday.  Originally I was hoping to race it as part of a workout, but with this big race coming up on Aug 12 have to do what’s best for it, and that is a 90 minute tempo workout the day before. It’s been very hot in Guelph,  cooled down a bit this week so taking advantage and getting the workout in.  Seeing as how the Highland Games is 149 years old I know that I will be able to have the opportunity to participate again when I can really race it.  For those of you who are not “nishers” and don’t know about Antigonish Highland Games it lays claim to being the oldest Continuos Highland Games outside of Scotland. Its always been a good time and worth checking out if you are in the area. There are activities and events for pretty much everyone as well as a homecoming Ceilidh aka beer tent in the town park with a couple hundred of your closest friends (or soon to be friends)
Looking forward seeing everyone there…
