Celebrate 2,000 km of running and nearly 3 months of one extreme adventure. How? With a whip cream pie to the face.
Sebastien Sasseville (above photo, centre) is the face of Outrun Diabetes, a solo 7,500km run across Canada to raise awareness about diabetes and to inspire others to live life to the fullest.
Outrun Diabetes logistics man Patrick St-Martin (above, left) got fancy, dressed up with a bow-tie along a lonely stretch of highway, to surprise Sebastien on his milestone.
Here’s a video of how it all went down.
Note: This video is in French and even if you don’t understand, it’s important to watch to the end.
Last week Sebastien Sasseville entered his home province, Quebec. You better believe he’s been partying as friends, family and fans welcome him back.
So what do you do when you’re on home turf?
For starters, cheer for the Habs while tackling the kilometres.
And eat carbs. Really. Good. Carbs.
Have lunch with mom at home
And name the RV. Drum roll please…..the name of the Outrun Diabetes RV is….Charlotte!
Shawn Shepheard got all the latest updates with Sebastien. Here’s the last video.
