It's Official

I just registered for the Eugene Marathon. I am committed to this now. No turning back. Also registered my little princess for the kids marathon. We'll start recording her mileage in Jan (I believe). I'm excited and am looking forward to a stronger performance this time around.

It seemed I was plagued with injuries last time... first Plantars Faciitis in my left heel which prevented me from training for about 3 weeks... then falling HARD during the Dirty Dozen trail run in early Sept. (my thigh still hurts from that fall when bumped just the right way and it occasionally itches - healing I presume).

This time around, I'm going to train not only harder, but hopefully smarter as well. I think I have decided to go with the FIRST training plan (with occasional modifications as necessary). A friend who I met a few months ago has been running with me on Thr and to my delight, she is a former professional! She registered for Eugene as well so we will be training together. :)

Stay tuned for further developments. :)

  6. I'd love to join you but the last time I went across the border, the US border guards gave me a really hard time. They accused me of being a criminal and suggested that I was going to disappear after crossing the border, never to return to Canada. They also questioned why my passport was going to expire in 1 month. Gee, I didn't know that I needed to renew my passport for a 3 day business trip...

    Anyway, I'm targetting a half marathon in Vancouver in May or June.
