Hey Hey Everyone!
It’s official, I just signed up for my first 10km race of 2019!
I am so excited to run the Lululemon Toronto 10K for the second year in a row!
Last year, I ran the Lululemon Toronto Waterfront 10K for the first time, & ran it in 53 minutes. Not my best time, but it gives me a goal to beat!
Last year, I was awful at keeping up with my training prior to the 10km race, but this year I am 100% determined to stick to a running schedule!
I love running, I use it as a moving meditation, it always helps me clear my mind & once I have my headphones in, music playing & my sneakers are hitting the pavement, I immediately start to relax.
This year the charity is ‘The 519‘. It is Canada’s largest LGBTQ2S community centre, and is committed to the health, happiness and full participation of our LGBTQ2S communities. My cousin & some friends of mine are part of the LGBTQ community & I truly believe that all individuals should feel included & spaces like the 519 is helping the LGBTQ community & the community as well.
I have set a goal of raising $100 for ‘The 519’. If you would like to donate to this cause, there is no pressure here, but if you’d like you can sponsor my run here!
Thanks to the Instagram countdown feature, I know I have exactly 2 months & 16 days to train. I am so excited it is starting to warm up & I can hit the pavement instead of run inside. But in the meantime, I need to go schedule my runs into my calendar, get my google spreadsheet ready & get the training started!
Are you running any races this year? Do you have any advice for surviving long runs? How do you schedule your training?
Let the training begin!
