Did I mention I am running a marathon?

So I have done several races this year so far, 2 half marathons, a 30K, a 10K and a 5K, all very close together with the half being last.  After having not too great of a run at the race I thought I did too many too close for me.  I took some time off … Continue reading

Tomorrow is race day

Tomorrow is the Chilly Half Marathon that I have been spending the winter training for.  Most of this has been on my treadmill as we have had an unusually frigidly cold and very long and snowy winter.  My goal was just to beat my time from the Scotia Half Marathon and it still is but … Continue reading
