After a long and arduous race to Vancouver it is time to relax for a day or two. However my Dad is still riding and my Mom is still organizing so that leaves me to do the relaxing.
My Dad helped me out this morning. I wanted to go for a run to relax my tense sitting muscles from all the hours in the RV. He accompanied me on his bike.
Vancouver is diverse. We ran/rode through many different areas. We made it to water and followed the harbour for a little bit. And then I ran up hill all the way back to the hotel--wasn't sure if I'd make it.
It was really striking to see the mountains and the water right next to each other... as if they were one, spreading along the floor and up into the sky.
There is a lot of construction going on, possibly to get the city ready for the Olympics. As noble a cause as the Olympics are, it was a pain to dodge the pylons and construction tape. Especially for my Dad on his bike.
We knew where we were most of the time. The map only came out once and we made it back safely.
