May 4th, 2014 — The Vancouver Marathon was held today under rainy conditions. Spectators on the Camosun Hill cheered on the serious runners such as Gibson’s Kimberley Doerksen, below, who won the women’s class and finished 10th overall, as well as the not so serious such as James Gardener from Tofino who finished 3rd in the over 50 class running barefoot and Nana Nakayama from Tokyo who ran with a wig. At least I hope it’s a wig.
