Hello beautiful people! Welcome to another blog post on my website. This week's post is so special to me because I had a ton of friends visit Toronto from Costa Rica to take part in the 2017 Toronto Scotiabank Marathon, and it was fantastic having them here! On the morning of the marathon, the supporters including myself and some friends from Costa Rica gathered downtown to support our runner friends.
Nathan Phillips Square was buzzing with excitement! Apart from the runners, there were many friends and family members and friends of the runners came to support their loved ones at the race. Our team of runners and supporters wore custom blue shirts to signify we were "Team Costa Rica" ready to represent in my new home city of Toronto!
