Back in the game

Thank you so much for the outpouring of support on my last post. It seems like you guys are almost as excited as I am that I can run again, and that means the world to me.

Last night I laced up and headed out for my second run post-injury. Everything clicked immediately. I felt fantastic! I stuck to a comfortable pace right around 6:00/KM (I’m not even going to think about pushing the pace until I get my distances back up) and felt like I could keep going and going and… you get the idea.

I set out to run only slightly longer than Sunday’s 4K, but finished off at 7.1 (4.4mi). I could easily have kept on going, but Mom was expecting me for dinner. (Pancakes, anyone?)

Based on how I felt yesterday, I’m hoping to get a 10K in the books before the end of this weekend.

And speaking of 10K, I registered for the Sporting Life 10K yesterday.

Canada’s EASIEST and one of the fastest downhill 10k’s, it runs right down the middle of Canada’s most famous streetβ€”Yonge Street!

Whether you are a novice looking for the easiest course around to complete your first 10k or a seasoned veteran setting that new PB, this is the event for you! Sign up today and join 10,000+ fitness enthusiasts in the dash down Yonge Street.

I loved the energy and excitement of this event last year and I blew my own goal out of the water with a 49:10 finish. It’s a famously fast course and I am definitely looking for another PR. Any of my fellow Torontonians going to be there?
