Tune up (and oil change)

Well, if you've been keeping track at home, I haven't run a step since the Marathon at WDW on January 13th. For about two weeks I could not even look at Gatorade without feeling slightly ill.

So, my first race of the post-Disney 2013 season is the Toronto Yonge Street 10K on Sunday April 21st.

Being selected to be a Digital Champion for this race was super cool, and from the looks of the others in this group I'm in pretty awesome company! Part of the deal is that I get to beat the drum for this race, and have people come out and run and have fun on the longest street in Canada. 

Of course it also means that I need to lace up and get moving, since I'd like to actually run the 10k in a time that justifies my participation and helps me earn my spot. 

We have what they are calling a 'Tune Up Run' this Sunday. 6K in Toronto earlyish in the morning. Luckily my partner in crime, Em, is always game to push, pull and prod me along, and is going to run with me. I'd drag Limpy but she's in an air boot thingy and can't even lace a shoe on that foot, let alone run.

I'm looking forward to the kick in the butt that will get me back in the game. I realize how much I dislike running in the winter, in Canada at least.

Will I still enjoy running...was a break of a month a good idea?

  1. Limpy wishes she could lace anything on the darn foot and run with you but with rest hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

    I know you will be fine.....you have great muscle memory. And don't forget every training run needs to be followed by breakfast/lunch/brunch!
