July 12 - Rain or Shine!

Stage 12
St. Andre, QC to St-Michel De B., QC.

In the early morning hours, the East Team began the run facing heavy winds. Even the normally calm St. Lawrence River looked more like the sea as waves rocked the shores when the runners struggled by. Fortunately, the winds died down as the day progressed and the runners emerged from their cover behind the run van.

The ruuners enjoyed the latter half the day as they passed by beautiful little houses along the shore at the feet of some smaller hills and cliffs. It was also quite interesting to see some very intricately carved sculputres that were scattered along the route.

Nearing the end of the day, the runners were once again at the weather’s mercy as it began to rain and thunder. But their spirits were not dampened as they completed their run to Saint Michel-de-Bellechasse, and looked forward to tomorrow’s journey across the St. Lawrence to the historic city of Qu├ębec.
