A lot of Running this past weekend

Ran to Work
in my
2010 Reggae Marathon T
Whew!  I need a day off after this past weekend.  It was packed with running and it was all good.

First up was Run to Work Friday.  It was a 12 km run mostly downhill from home to the office in downtown Toronto.  I took all my clothes to the office Thursday and traveled light on Friday morning:  debit card, Driver's License and Subway pass.  The Subway pass was 'just in case' but thankfully I didn't have to use it and subject passengers to my 'Runner's Scent'.  The running itself was uneventful.  I was incredibly slow but I got er dun!  I'm feeling pretty good for my first race this year the Sporting Life 10 K on May 12.
At Runner's Mark
Reggae Marathon Info Session

On Saturday morning I didn't run.  It seems I have finally figured out that rest is an important part of staying fit and healthy so I did a whole bunch of pushups.  Working on the core!  I know I have a six-pack under that layer of middle-age stomach fat.  I did get to talk running however as the guest of the Runner's Mark group who are planning their return to Reggae Marathon this December.  Saturday at 12 noon was their Reggae Marathon information session.  Ingrid, Carl and Wendy and their group enjoyed themselves in Negril last December and are looking forward to even more fun this December.  

Sunday morning I headed to the local high school track for some speed work.  Honestly this is not my favourite form of running but after a tough workout I feel great.  Physically tired of course but mentally satisfied.  The afternoon was spent as usual with Tia watching another James Bond movie.  Casino Royal...again.  Tia sees Daniel Craig as eye candy!  Plus it was a reward for me after all that running.

Until next time...


I'm raising funds for the Heart & Stroke Foundation in 2013.  My goal is to raise $2,000 by December 31.  My planned races in 2013 include:

  1. The Sporting Life 10K, May 12
  2. The Toronto Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront 1/2 Marathon, October 20
  3. The Reggae Marathon, December 7.
