Hamilton, ON Felix Wong

I went to Hamilton, Ontario to check out where my parents attended university and lived shortly after getting married, and also to visit a couple friends of my mom, including Mabel (who was her high school teacher in Hong Kong) and her son McKenzie.

Mabel and McKenzie generously let me stay overnight at their home. From there I snuck out early in the morning to run in the nearby Sulfur Springs 100, my first 100-mile ultra run.
