|Julia’s BIB: Check!|
Once we got to Hamilton there were a tonne of runners EVERYWHERE. And you can tell all of the ones in their cars with their “26.2” stickers from One More Mile. It was fun spotting out all the runners from Toronto to Hamilton. But then finding parking or anywhere to stop was next to impossible so we shoved Julia out of the car and rolled out to find parking.
On our way to the finish line we had to find a bathroom. As a race participant you see porta potties EVERYWHERE. And I like a picture of them. This time it was just a sign pointing to the floor. Is that where the fans go?!

After dropping our belongings in the car we headed to the finish line and started cheering with our cowbell app! Who knew that was what everyone did in the stands?!
We got to see the excitement of the first 30K runner run through the finish with a 1:37:14 time. It was so exciting! He ended up being the first Canadian to win the 30K Around the Bay since 1996.
And being so excited to see the winner, you should have seen me waiting for Julia! After 2 hours of standing at the prime finish line spot, Ken and I were getting pretty antsy to see her blast past us. We were camera ready and pumped as soon as she gave us the phone call to tell us that she was at the 27KM mark.
After all the excitement we found Julia with her medal and I insisted on taking her picture before she ate all the food in her goodie bag.
On the car ride home I ended up winning a coffee on my roll-up the rim! In the words of Charlie Sheen, “I’M WINNING!”
