Frank in Quebec

Here’s a snap of Stephen ‘Frank’ Spencer running in Quebec. This is where his journey back to health began, with a challenge from his daughter Sophie to run a 5k with her.

Having roped in his other daughter Isabel here is another taken at a 5k in Shawnigan, which Wikipedia informs me is “… a city located on the Saint-Maurice River in the Mauricie area in Quebec, Canada.”

There doesn’t look to be a very big entry for this one!:)
