Running around and stuff

On one of my way too infrequent runs around the Seawall, I saw people congregating, stretching, and jogging about before Dragonboat practicing would begin at the east end of False Creek near the Telus World of Science — all to get good and strong and fast for the Dragonboat Festival in mid-June. I might attend this year but have never done so before as a spectator. Dragonboaters are fun, generally fit, fairly good-looking people. ;-)

Around the bend a short distance away, in a parking lot east of B.C. Place, runners, bikers, and parents walking with small kids were treated to an unusual sight of the VPD Motorcycle Drill Team tentatively practicing some of their tricks. I wonder if this is a regular thing, Tuesdays around 5:30….?

In addition to the usual dogs happily socializing in the various off-/leashed areas, these two sights provided welcome additional distraction. If only every run were so fun….
