Toronto Goodlife Marathon 2012 – 28th Time’s A Charm

Here’s how Marathon #28 went down…

Goodlife Toronto Marathon Home StretchThe Toronto Goodlife Marathon came only 3 weeks after a fairly disastrous Boston Marathon where we battled 90 degree temperatures. My decision during that race to slow down and save what I could for Goodlife actually paid off somewhat. Was it all worth it? I think so…

We all have our own reasons why our capabilities are not met in full for whatever reasons and instead of excusing myself for not realizing my top performance in the marathon, I will simply say, that on this day, I ran the best race I think I could have.

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
