Illustration Friday,

It is a fairly straight forward interpretation of the theme but I thought that it was a fun drawing. And once again I am all over the map with my media; one week digital, one week traditional.

I am also a recreational runner. I have run 4 Half Marathons and one full marathon (3:25) so I am familiar with all that sort of thing.

But there is a man who lives just west of Toronto, Ed Whitlock is his name, and he was the first person over 70 years of age to run a sub 3 hour marathon. And for those non runners out there, that is FAST!
