I was putting together a nice, relaxing route through the trails in Pacific Spirit Park when I got the invitation to bring the marathon clinic to the Denman Running Room this weekend for waffles. Waffles? Waffles! It seems the local representative for a shoe company which *doesn’t* have a long and storied history involving a waffle iron will be cooking up waffles and I am not one to resist the lure of free food so I revised the route to include a detour to the West End for a mid-run Waffle Break!
