We hope you are all staying safe and keeping your physical distance from others. This is definitely the better word choice as social distancing implies we don't socialise, in any form, with others. We need to stay connected with one another more than ever to get through these days of isolation. Your Kanata parkrun core team are keeping in touch with each other through WhatsApp and FB.
For those of you wanting to stay connected with parkrun, there are a couple of options. There's the Big parkrun Quiz on Fridays. Details are on the parkrun.ca or the parkrun Facebook site.
We're certainly missing our parkrun at Kanata and definitely missing post-run coffee.
So yesterday (Saturday) we held our first virtual 'post-run' coffee on Zoom. It was interesting as we had a couple of bombers but I'd set up a waiting room so we were quickly able to get rid of them once it became clear who they were. We had eight people join in and hope to have more next week.
We plan on doing this every Saturday at 0930hrs using a secure ZOOM link. If you'd like to join us, send us a FB message and we'll send the link and password to you.
parkrun Kanata extends a big thank you those who are still out there working in the grocery stores, health facilities, pharmacies and to those providing municipal services so that we all can stay healthy. Keep smiling everyone and stay connected!
