Best racing quote ever! Lifelong running advocate Dan Cumming tells his story about racing with Canadian Track & Field legend, Harry Jerome:
“…on that day I was dead even with Harry Jerome… right until the starter fired the gun!”
The 9-foot bronze statue of Harry Jerome seen in this video can be found gracing the south east shores of Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC.

How Canadian Are You, Eh?
The Canada Day weekend is ahead of us, but before you bust out the 2-4, why not take a minute to test your national knowledge? Anthony recently discovered How Canadian Are You, Eh?, an official iPhone app with a fun, easy quiz from the Department of Citizenship and Immigration. They’ve also created an Android and Blackberry version, as well as posting the quiz online and on Facebook, so just about anyone can put their Canadian history skills to the test.
This app is harder than it looks – don’t be surprised if you’re stumped by some of the questions. Once you’re finished, share your score on Facebook and Twitter… even if your score doesn’t accurately reflect your true patriot love.
Happy Canada Day!
