After meeting up and running together to the Brickworks Farmers’ Market, Kendal and I decided to make it a double-header and run to the Leslieville Farmers’ Market together on Sunday. I had 18k on my schedule and Kendal had 10-12k, so I ran the 7k to her house to make up the difference. We ran down to the beach, through Ashbridges Bay Park and over to the market to complete the run.
I’ve only ever run the full Ashbridges Bay Park once before and I forgot how pretty and peaceful it is. Toronto’s parks are like this unending surprise, there’s always more to discover and explore.
I felt strong throughout this entire run, but we did stop three times for some water and some stretching. 18.2k in 1:57:03. It gives me hope sub-2:00 is doable, even though I’m still not 100% these days.
