I did it! This morning I ran a 14 km run in honor of the Coho salmon (yes, that's Vancouver!). It was an amazing run, with the most scenic views. I completed the run in 1.09:30 hours, 4.58 min per km and with that time I finished sixth in my gender/age ranking.
Wietze en Karin (boyfriend and friend) made a great banner and waited for me at the finish line, which was so nice to have them supporting me! After the run we ate some amazing salmon (the best I ever ate), and celebrated along with all the Vancouverites. I guess we're beginning to fit in here really well!
