Yesterday my friend Moira and I ran 15 km legs of a 30 km race in a two person relay. We both ran similar times i.e. about 1:45 for Moira and 1:47 for me with about a 3 minute time to move the timing chip from her shoe to mine. We were not concerned about speed but did come in ahead of quite a few runners that were younger that us. Now we are training for Moira to do a half marathon later this spring and both of us are signing up for a half marathon in the fall.

The American Woodcocks have been twittering and buzzing since last Saturday evening. They were early arriving last year on March 10th so hearing them on the 3rd was rather amazing. However, I had heard that they were in the Hamilton/Dundas area already last week so I was expecting them.
The Robins started singing on Tuesday, Mar. 6th. I forgot to write down when I first heard them last year but the year before it was on the 15th.
Killdeer have been heard in the Hamilton area but I am still listening with no results. I am also listening for Song Sparrows.
Meanwhile, our donkey sings every morning.
