They were counting down for the run in the Scottish Shop!
Then the marathon, Sunday morning from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We hustled out of bed for an anticipated 6:30 pass-by. They had entrants from all over. I believe this first man came from Africa, so rumour has it in town! He was sprightly, definitely a pro!
I'm still getting to know my new lens, and 6 a.m. isn't the time to learn it, so I apologize for some out of focus people, and in focus background foliage! The deerflies were terrible, and we both have bites. Other than that it was a wonderful morning. The afternoon might include a nap.
Butch and Cassidy were out and about, angry that I'd locked the cat door in the garage. They were in the house at 2 a.m., Annabelle chased them out, but they left their disgruntlement behind. (Here they were at 2 a.m. in video.) First through, was Kenya's Gilbert Kiptoo. What an amazing runner!
Perth Kilt Run Marathon: 42km (26.3 miles), beginning at Rideau Ferry.
