The legs felt heavy today. Makes sense, I did yoga and ran 10k the day before. My shoulder feels sore, too. What’s up with that? Perhaps my body is preparing me for this weekend’s yoga retreat. I (briefly) thought about lunch time yoga, but abandoned that plan. Rest is as important as running. And tomorrow, I have speedwork on the agenda.
On May 5, the Goodlife Toronto Marathon is going through my neighbourhood. I’m setting up a Corktown Cheer Station to support the runners. It’s my (very small) way of giving back — to the spectators who have cheered me on in races in the past and to the running community that has come together as a result of what happened on Monday.
Come out if you can. Hilarious signs are encouraged. Enthusiasm is a must. I will have cowbells. My neighbours are going to hate me. It’s going to be great.

A cheering section, fun!! That will be my first Half Marathon – gulp! By the time I’m anywhere near Corktown I’m going to need the cheers 🙂 I had a hip injury in the middle of my training that set me back a bit, so my last long run is this weekend and will be about 17k. Was really hoping to be able to run the full distance in advance, but not everything works out EXACTLY AS I METICULOUSLY PLANNED IT.. apparently. Thanks for your support 🙂
Yay for you, Nancy! I’m so excited for you. Good life was my first HM and I really enjoyed it, the course is great.
Fingers are crossed for good weather!
