I just signed up for my next race, the St. Patrick’s Day 10 km race!
Part of my training plan for the Ottawa Marathon this year was to sign up for more shorter races before the marathon. I had three on my list, two km races and one half-marathon. Now that I have signed up for the St. Patrick’s Day race I have officially committed to the first of those races.
My wife has also decided to run the race. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and one of us will be able to bring our daughter in her Chariot so we can make it a complete family event!
The best part about the St. Patrick’s Day race is that the start and finish line is at the High School just a few blocks from our house. It is not often that I get a chance to walk to the start of a race.
Speaking of races in Ottawa, I noticed on Twitter today that the races for Race Weekend are starting to fill up quickly with the half-marathon being 56% sold out and the marathon being 51% sold out. Sign up now if you are interested in participating.
