There were two events of note in Vancouver on Sunday - the Vancouver Sun Fun Run in the morning and the Vancouver Canucks game in the evening.
THE VANCOUVER SUN FUN RUN APRIL 19, 2009
The Sun Run has over 55,000 participants and is one of the largest mass runs in the world - the weather was almost ideal - fairly cool yet dry - living within a block of the route I gathered the camera and took these images from a couple of vantage points near my condo - the race attracts all kinds of people - runners - walkers, people with strollers, in costume - etc. It takes a long time for the run to past any given point - while I didn't see any of my friends in the race I did see one of the Marathon Bike escorts working the first aid details and found out later that another one ran the race with his helmet cam and has posted it to his blog at:http://bulletproofcourier.blogspot.com
THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS VS ST LOUIS GAME THREE
The other event was the Canucks - while it was an away game the interest in the bars and pubs was as usual very high and the 3-2 close fought victory gives them a 3 - 0 lead in the series with the next game scheduled for Tuesday right around the time that I will be out cycling - might just have to use the record feature on my DVR.
