Going to Quebec City

I am going to Quebec City this Friday. On Sunday, I am running the Marathon! Should be fun (or bloody painful...). This will be my 2nd marathon so far this year, and I may also run another marathon in Regina 2 weeks later. I am expecting (hoping?) to run under 2:49 this time, but I have heard this course is fairly hilly and not fast. I guess I will find out the hard way whether that is true or not.

So I am wondering if anyone has any tips on what to do in Quebec City besides running a marathon? :)

There must be some good guitar stores around, and some good live music to catch in the city. I am looking forward to this trip a lot, as I've never ever been to this city, and I hear it is a very beautiful place. Last year I went to Montreal for a few days, and I really enjoyed spending some time there.

I love jazz, and I am sure there must be some good jazz music being played in Quebec City (although Montreal may be the "mecca" of jazz in Canada). I would LOVE to go to a blues jam or something. I've never done that while on holidays.

I am going home on Tuesday. If someone in the area would like to hook up and talk guitar or something, let me know. I'll be checking my email once in a while during my stay. I am staying at this place - Auberge Michel Doyon‎

I am going with 2 running pals, and I think we'll be interested in some sightseeing and tourist stuff as well as live music and beer. If you have any suggestions on attractions and things to do - let me know!

Wish me luck in the marathon. I am in really good shape right now, but I have never had much success in the marathon. I guess I would say I'm not much of a marathon runner, but I would like to try and prove myself wrong!
