A Minute to a Marathon


Earlier this month, I made a precious declaration.  It started with  a song and ended up at The Running Room.  Yesterday evening I took my first steps toward my personal offline challenge.

This clinic is literally called "Learn to Run".  It's for people like me who want to learn how to run and it concludes with the Mississauga Marathon in 60 days.  No, I won't be running a marathon in 60 days, I'll be running the Hazel 5k.  No word on whether Hazel will be joining us, but I wouldn't bet against it.

Last night involved a little orientation, introductions by the two instructors, Mike and Ale, and a run around High Park.  In actuality, it was a run/walk hybrid, but you've got to start somewhere.  The Big Guy upstairs threw down double digit temps in honour of the occasion.  That was sweet.

In addition to these weekly clinics we're supposed to run twice more during the week.  I'll run to the ACC tonight to catch the Raps and then run again on Sunday morning.
