Poutine, crepes and a half marathon

Hubby and I, along with another couple, will be spending a weekend in Montreal in April for the half marathon.

We love Montreal, our friends love Montreal, we’re always looking for new race experiences and we get a great discount on a two-bedroom suite because hubby spends so much time in Montreal for work. So here we are!

No doubt many a poutine and crepe will be consumed as we take to the streets for three days of antics, running a little 21K along the way.

This race is part of the Canada Running Series and they are currently offering discounts for registering for 2-4 events. Time to start working on that 2010 race calendar.


On the workout front, tonight is H.O.T. (and I think I’ve recruited a friend from my running group!), tomorrow is 10K, Thursday is 6K with a buddy at lunch and Spin after work (then seeing New Moon!!!), Friday off and weekend long run distances TBD.

I’ve successfully lost 7 lbs since kicking off Project: Lean Mean Running Machine and I feel fantastic. All of my work pants are officially too big. I’ve been hoarding some gift cards so a shopping spree will be in order soon.

Don’t forget to sign up for the HBBC!
