Fun. Grounding. Too short.
Those are the words Sebastien Sasseville uses to describe what it’s like to be back home in Quebec.
He’s reuniting with friends, family and home-cookin’.
I asked him what it’s like to finally have meals made by mom.
“Filling. Like combo bolus filling.”
Sebastien began his run across the country in February, starting the journey in St. John’s Newfoundland. Two weeks ago he crossed the border into Quebec and this Sunday, he’s scheduled to be in Montreal.
MTL should mark 2,500km completed, that’s 1/3 of his trek. Roughly 200 people are expected to join the Outrun Diabetes frontman for a 5km run to celebrate the occasion. More info on the run below.
Here are some Instagram photos of Sebastien’s time in Quebec. All photos courtesy of Outrun Diabetes.
