After completing the PEC marathon earlier this month I decided I would try and complete 2 or 3 shorter races before the end of the year.
I have pretty much decided that my first one will be the Beat Beethoven race taking place on October 30. the race offers an 8 km race and a half-marathon. I am thinking of doing the 8 km race. Not sure what finishing time I should aim for but during my training for PEC I was running 8 km in 35-36 minutes at my tempo pace so I would like to see if I can beat that.
Following this race I would also like to do at least one race, if not two races, in November or December. I have not yet decided which one(s) I would like to do but it seems like there are a few more race options in Ottawa before the year ends.
