Today was the Vancouver sun run! As previously advertised, I ran as a banana with Fair Trade Vancouver.

What an amazing event! By my estimation at least 30 banana-hours worth of running took place today. We were a slippery bunch, splitting our way through tens of thousands of runners.

With us to chase down banana-injustice was the poverty gorilla (guerilla?). Sometimes he nearly caught the bananas. By the end he no longer had any power over us (heat exhaustion?) – and WE chased the gorilla! The poverty gorilla was held at bay for another day by the power of fair trade! At the finish line we had non-stop interest from other runners, many of whom were keen to get a photo with the team.
