Summary: Cool day, animals hiding, giraffe on medal.
Brush with greatness: We thought the guy from Blue Rodeo was there, but it wasn't him. Does that count?
The next weekend we ran the inaugural Audi Best Buddies 10k, which had to be my favourite race so far and taught me to sign up quick for races that have high-end cars in their names. It started and ended at Shops of Don Mills, which is a new outdoor chi-chi-la-la plaza in suburban Toronto. There was a chance to win an Audi SUV for 6 months, followed by an Audi convertible for the next 6 months. I was sure I would win the raffle. They also said they would have celebrities, which I glossed over quickly as I still had free cars on my mind. The day was wet and cold and the 10k went in and out of Sunnybrook Park (very nice) with lots of hills (not very nice). I finished in 1:07:xx (another PR).

Summary: Didn't win a car, excellent medal, silver blanket (for a 10k?) and snacks, learned importance of hillwork.
Brush with greatness: Too many to mention again (see above photo op).
