Keep Running!!

Well, tonight ... I found out an easy to keep keep the feet moving quickly, when out for a training run.

Tonight was a 10km run. I started out well, good form and speed. The run felt good.

About 8km in to the run, I felt my sugars dropping. I walked, at a few candies...and knew I was fine to keep running. My mind just wanted to walk. Such a nice evening walking along the oceanside. No traffic, no people....flat road....until I looked behind me, and saw a huge cloud of mosquitos!! There must have been about 20 on my back, and a cloud quickly forming behind me! Yup....there is my sure fire way to keep on running!!

Seems it has been rather damp lately, lots of rain in Nova Scotia! Those little buggers got me home in record time!

Hi Drea

My name is Grant Daisley and I am working with a team to coordinate an event called Cyclebetes: the biggest relay in the world. It began with a promise that a father made to his 12 year old daughter. Vancouver businessman Kyle Balagno promised his daughter Taylor he would do everything in his power to help find a cure for her juvenile (type one) diabetes before her 18th birthday. He had 6 years. That commitment spawned Team H2V, a 5 man team who cycled across Canada at break neck speed in September 2007. They made the epic ride in just 8 days, set a Guinness World Record and raised one million dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The journey of Team H2V was remarkable and inspiring to all Canadians. The simple goal that fueled the team was the desire to do….something that hadn’t been done…..something extrodinary.
Cyclebetes is the legacy of Team H2V - built on themes of community, responsibility, leadership and promise and is broken down into four elements where all age groups can get involved and become Champions. Based out of Vancouver, our biggest challange has been connecting with people across Canada. If you would like more information please reach me at or checkout our group on facebook.

Thank you for your time,
