How about a little RUN down memory lane...

My hubby is from England (moved to Canada with his family in 1996) and he has always wanted to take me there to show me where he grew up. We've been planning the trip since before getting married in 2005 and it is finally happening next September (2009). We're even bringing my parents along for the ride!

We were surfing the 'net and discovered that there's a great race in hubby's hometown, and it's in September! The Bristol Half Marathon is "one of the UK’s leading road races" and "one of the largest and most popular half marathons in the country." It sounds like a beautiful route:

The Reebok Bristol Half Marathon will start and finish in Bristol’s historic Harbourside. The scenic, sea-level course will take runners around the old city, past the Harbourside, out and back along the Portway, through the stunning Avon Gorge, and pass twice under Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.




What better way to explore a little bit of hubby's heritage?
