|A stunning monument for Neil Peart's Wife and Daughter|
Next up, we have the sad monument of a young mother (who was also a psychiatrist) who jumped in front of a subway train with her 6 Month Old baby in her arms. Here's the story.
And now for the ridiculous. Steve Stavro owned a grocery store and did very well for himself, eventually being able to afford to buy the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Team. Steve was Macedonian, and I guess he fancied himself as a modern day Alexander the Great. Here's his humble monument. Alexander the Great conquered the world, Mr. Stavros, not so much. But you can't take it with you, so why not?

So I leave the Cemetery after the roughly 8 K loop, then it's sprint past the Captain's house (slow down once out of view), over to the dry cleaners. past the fire hall, around the corner and hammer time for the last 500 meter sprint.
Total Distance-10.6K Lots of hills.I try and do this tempo run once or twice per week.
PB-45:22 last April, just before my Sporting Life 10K PB in May.
That's it for now, I could go on, but I've got to go for a run.
Next Up- The Beer & Beef Curling Bonspeil doesn't go so well.
