Since last week was a recovery week I only had a 15 km run scheduled. The fact that building I used to work in was being imploded made it easy to pick out a route because I was curious to see how it would happen.
I had planned to take one of my daughters with me for the run but everyone was asleep as I got ready to leave the house. Knowing my oldest would be disappointed if she found out I went without her I went to see if Incould wake her and she jumped up as soon as I asked her if she still wanted to go see my old office building blown up.
Unfortunately I did not leave myself enough time to get to the site from my house before the implosion took place and I found myself running at my marathon pace to try and get there on time. We were about 1 km away from the site when we heard the building come down. However, we continued so we could check out the aftermath.
On the way home a pair of ducks swimming in the Rideau Canal provided us with a little more excitement. As you can see, despite the rain Sunday morning was an entertaining adventure.
