Monday can bite me…..and race results

The results from yesterdays race were posted last night. According to the official stats I finished at 53:14 with a pace of 5:20 per km or 8:34 per mile. I finished 9 out of 28 in my age group and 58 out of 183 overall. Not many people ran the 10k compared to the 5k, which had 1500 runners.

Did I do that??

So when I left you last I had spent a couple hours making and decorating cupcakes for a couple people at work. I even decided to make a couple dozen extra to bring in for the other staff in my area.  Friday Morning I got up bright and early . I always make Shane’s smoothie in the morning so while I was doing that I told him to politely asked him to put all the cupcakes in my car. 

So he nicely got up and did just that. It seamed as though he was taking quite a long time to do this simple tasks and I was starting to get a bad feeling. And when I opened the front door to leave I saw Shane standing on the front porch looking like

September 25-27 I have been chosen (I am so surprised I was picked) to participate in The National Peace Officer’s Memorial Run It is such an honor to participate in this run. I will be on a team of 24 peace Officers throughout the Province (Officers come from all over the country in teams of 24) It starts in Toronto and lasts for three days, ending up in Ottawa at Parliament Hill. I will be responsible to run 2 10km legs in less then one hour each of the three days. This run is primarily to honor and pay tribute to Officers who have fallen in the line of duty. I am really looking forward to this run. Hopefully I am in physically able to do this, I have never something like this before. I may try to sneak out of the hotel after the first day……..
