Running company in Amherst !
As you can see at the pictures from todays run I was lucky to have company by the local running club in Amherst. I can guarantee that if there is one thing that can pick me up here where the km's and continents are piling up heavily in the legs - then its to share the run ! I think the joy of running is equal, no matter if you are running 3km, 35km or 35 000km and it boosted my own inspiration to share stories and experienses with the other runners today :-)
After the run my supportdriver, Alex from Usa, took me back to our host, Alfred, who gave us a very detailed tour of Amherst city.
It has about 9500 inhabitants and was settled by europeans by 1764, but had already by then been part of the native indian settlements and curiously the city has changed name several times; "Micmac" and later "Les Planches". During the industrilization it experised fast growth, became an important ship-building point and becoming a railroad stop boosted the developments. But according to statistics it reached it biggest population in the 1920'ties and early 60'ties with slight decline since then.
But Alfred made sure we got an impression beyond the statistics and historical dates: We got a look at the many new industries that has started up and not least a visit down by the coastline - situated at Fundy Bay it has some of the worlds largest differences between high and low tide (as you maybe can see from the pictures) !
It has been a Great stay w. Alfred and his family and equally a Joy to once again have compay on my run. THANK YOU :-))
