Ottawa Race Weekend

27 May

This weekend was a busy one for Ottawa! Thousands of runners flocked to the nation’s capital for numerous running events: 2k, 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon.

Mark and I hosted and cheered on a few members of family for their running events. We sat backed and cheered (which I believe is sometimes just as hard as running).

Hundreds of runners running the half or full marathon (they converged on to the same route at the end)

And on the note of running marathons, I have decided which marathon will be my first: the Niagara Falls International Marathon

Niagara Falls International Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K

The Niagara Falls International Marathon is the only marathon in the world that starts in one country and finishes in an other. It is mostly a “downhill” run with only one incline. I have 5 months to train – it is October 21st. I’m really looking forward to start training and even more excited for the race itself! I will keep you updated with my training schedule and progress. I’m gonna need a lotta support for this one!
