Tomorrow I will be participating in the Army Run for the second year in a row. In its 3rd year, the Army Run is an icreasingly popular event in Ottawa that offers both a 5km and a half-marathon. Both of these race use similar courses to the National Capital races that take place in May, although this year the half-marathon will be using a new route due to a scheduling conflict with the Terry Fox run.
Since I am training for a marathon that takes place in two weeks I was not planning on participating in this event this year. However I decided to volunteer to act as a pace bunny and will be participating in the 5 km tomorrow since it will allow me give something back to the running community and participate in an event in support of a good cause. I will post a report about the race tomorrow.
