Since I decided that I had too many owies to run 21.1K in Ottawa Race Weekend, I have set my sights on something much more achievable – a 2K relay race! The run is to raise money for the United Way via the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign.
I have set up a team with the people that I work with and we have been busy training over our lunch breaks. I work with non-running, but very fit people, and so I have been helping them train using the basics of the Couch to 5K program. Don’t tell them, but we have been skipping some workouts and speeding along because they are not actually starting from the couch.
We will be running on June 12 at noon at Tunney’s Pasture if you want to come and say “Hey!” The money raised goes towards the United Way, and I would be most grateful for any donations. You can donate here: http://www.unitedwerun.ca/
Thank you and Happy Trails!
