'Bent and Mrs. Tiny start running the Transgrancanaria Marathon at 4 a.m. Ontario time on Friday. You can track their progress by searching for their names at the link below. Spain has claimed 'Bent for some reason so you won't find him listed as a Canadian runner.
Charlotte starts the Transgrancanaria 125K on Friday at 6 p.m. Ontario time. I start the Advanced 82K Saturday at 2 a.m. and Funderstormin' starts the 30K Saturday at 3 a.m.
We had a chance to reach the finish line this morning but we're all hoping to make a second visit.
We spent the afternoon wandering around the capital city - Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Christopher Columbus visited the governor's house before making one of the largest navigation errors in history on his way to "Asia".
Who would have guessed the name "Canary Islands" comes from the Latin "Canis" for "dog"?

'Bent, Mrs. Tiny, Char, Funderstormin' and I traveled north from Maspalomas, Gran Canaria toward the centre of the island. The narrow mountain road twisted, turned, climbed, descended and climbed, protected by a very necessary guardrail. Dozens of extremely brave cyclists rode around the blind curves; a few of them sped past cars on their descents. The scenery was spectacular. I haven't traveled around Hawaii but I've heard some of the landscape is similar.
We climbed almost 1800 m, passing through several vegetation zones. We got chilly in the fog on our hike to Roque Nublo. ("Nublo" = "Cloudy" in Spanish and it was accurate.) We stopped in the charming village of Fataga on the way back and supported some local shops.
