Dear running clubs of which I am a member. . .(I have blind copied all of you in case it is not OK with you that I share your e-mail address with others): None of you specifically recognizes completion of the Canadian provinces and territories (at least beyond the 2nd time, with the exception of the 50&DC Club); nevertheless, I thought I’d at least call today’s achievement to your attention in case you deemed it worthy of your newsletter. Today, with the completion of the “Legs for Literacy” marathon in Moncton, New Brunswick (Canada), I finished my 4th time around the 13 Canadian Provinces and Territories (including 4 marathons run in Nunavut Territory after it was created in 1999). One person has done this twice (Eugene DeFronzo) and another could be viewed as doing it twice (Don Kern) although he is counting a Nanisivik marathon run in the Northwest Territory on Baffin Island as Nunavut – later, that island was ceded to Nunavut and is now part of its territory. No one else has done the Canadian 13 more than once. I’ve also pasted in the link to the Canadian Broadcasting Company published story on the new world record – they also have a video but I’ve not yet discovered that link. And I’ve attached an extraction from my running workbook that shows the race names, places, and dates of all four marathons I ran in each of the provinces and territories. (I have chosen not to include 3 other Canadian marathons I ran that were started in one place but either finished in or included a portion of the route in a different province, as rules change over time and some might not choose to count those 3, now or later.) http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/nb-legs-for-literacy-1.3817425 Incidentally, my wife Jeanne, who is a member of some of your clubs, today completed the half-marathon here to finish her half-marathons in all 13 provinces and territories. We’ve dug pretty hard but have not found any cases of any other USA woman having accomplished that (although some, like Cheri Pompeo, have done the 13 for full marathons).
