Today was the 15th anniversary Terry Fox Run for Cancer in Abu Dhabi. Oddly enough, it was better organized than the Abu Dhabi International Half-Marathon. Because the start was pretty close to where we live, I decided to make my family go. I mostly wanted to get my kids used to being involved in events like this. My son had been hearing about this event and what led up to it at school. I wasn't sure if we were going to do it so I didn't register with his school, instead, just showing up ten minutes before. It was mostly just a walk and the kids had to stop a lot. We only made it a quarter of the way before we saw a park that the kids wanted to play at. That was fine with us. We had a bit of playtime at the park before having lunch at Pizza Hut and going home.
