4th Anniversary of Marathoning

goodlife pace bunnyThis Sunday, I will run the marathon in Ottawa. My 24th marathon (2 of them 50k ultra-marathons)

I will be the 4 hour Pace Bunny and plan on enjoying the anniversary. Ottawa was my first Marathon (3:56) in 2007. I plan on doing many more still but would like to take this time to announce that somehow, I am crazy enough to have racked up over 80 races in the last 4 years.

Here they are: my the numbers followed by my Personal Best time for each distance … Read more of this post

Toronto Goodlife Marathon 2011 Pt 1

Ha, I didn’t even write part one. A new friend, JD did.

Since I haven’t had (made) the time to write about last Sunday (or 2 weeks ago – Sporting Life) JD’s report can tie you over.

Marathon Weekend: Mississauga vs Toronto

Here is an article that ran this week in the Thursday Star and online…
You may notice I was quoted in it.

I had a nice chat with the Stars Urban Affairs writer, Patty Winsa. Obviously there is a lot more that could be discussed here and it seems to be of most popular concern that Goodlife and Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathons should have merged into one large Fall Marathon. Too late for that now. It’s unfortunate because the press surrounding marathons in our GTA is more often negative than positive despite the many positives.

I am very curious to see what the actual numbers are next week. I plan to compare actual runners completing the events with those of last years. I have a feeling both will be way down.

What are your thoughts?

FYI, I am running the Goodlife Toronto event as a 3:40 Pace Bunny
