Last year you may recall that I was a member of Team Awesome, the first social media team assembled for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. It is official now that I will be a member of team awesome once again in 2016.
Team Awesome was assembled last year in order to help encourage other runners and build excitement for race weekend. I think it made for a great addition to race weekend on both counts and am pleased that the organizers have decided to not only keep it going but make the team even bigger this year.
Personally, it was an opportunity to make new friends in the running community here in the National Capital Region and from other parts of the country. It was also a great opportunity to share with other runners why I think we have the best race weekend in Canada here in Ottawa.
Once again this year you can follow my updates about race weekend here and on Twitter. I will be posting weekly updates on my training here and I will be sharing the latest updates on Twitter. Last year I made the list of top influencers for race weekend so I will have to be busy if I want to repeat that again this year!
While some members of the team have already been selected this year’s Team Awesome is still growing. If you are interested in joining us head over here and complete the application form. If you are on Twitter make sure to follow #RunOttawa2016 for the latest updates on race weekend.
