Speaking of running, Saskatoon plays host to approximately 14 Running Events throughout the year. They range from the Full Marathon to qualify for the New York Marathon to a 3KM Walk to raise funds for a charity. And yes, one of the main events occur in the winter and it’s called the “Brainfreeze Run”.

Located directly across from my condo residence is the Radisson Hotel. Twice a year, window washers brave the weather to perform their job. These fellows, who obviously have no fear of heights, are approximately 20 stories high.
