Race Weekend

This past weekend was the 2009 Ottawa Race Weekend. Both my husband and I are runners and hence we have been participating in this event for a number of years either as a runner or a spectator.

This year my husband trained for his first half marathon. He usually completes the 10km, trying to improve his time each year. Last year, being happy with his 10km time (45min), he decided to try the half marathon (21.2km).

From January to May 2009 he trained hard with hill training, speed training, weight training and many long distance runs. His hard work paid off as he was able to complete his first half marathon in 1:46:47, a pretty impressive time.

Congratulations Marc on your great run!

Wow - look at that. One of these days I'm gonna try my hand at a race. Maybe for my 30th.

I was really impressed with the number of people participating in race weekend. I had intended on posting some pictures of the race, but got completely behind on my blogging.

Congrats to Mark! 1/2 marathon is a major accomplishment.
