Ottawa Race Weekend with a 5 & 10K on Saturday and a full and half Marathon on Sunday. About fifteen minutes after our conversation Amy came back waving a piece of paper in my face, it was her registration for the Race Weekend 10K. So I rose up to the occasion and registered right away. Good thing we did because the 10K sold out by January/February this year!
I have NEVER done anything like this, anything this BIG. Yes the last three years I've done the Run For the Cure 5K (and I will do it as long as I physically can as its an important cause to me), but it is a unofficially, untimed charity run. Race Weekend is so big it brings 25 million dollars in revenue to the city of Ottawa! Three years ago I would of never of imagined/pictured/thought about taking part in Ottawa's biggest 10K race of the year! Here I am, 3 years later, 63 lbs lighter, and I AM a RUNNER!
Amy, thank you for pushing me! Can't wait for our 1/2 marathon challenge this fall... guess we should get registered right?
