Some business

Big B On The Road is hosting a great contest before he leaves for Shanghai. Drop by to share your ultimate running song for a chance to win a unique prize all the way from China, and don't forget to wish him good luck at the Great Wall Marathon! Contest ends today, so hurry!

I received two pairs of WrightSocks in the mail this week that I won through a recent Runners' Lounge giveaway. The very first pair of running socks I ever purchased were WrightSocks and I've been a big fan ever since. I find them light and comfy and the best part is, NO BLISTERS!

Went for a little 5K recovery run (~30 minutes) last night. Legs were a little tired, but no soreness after Sunday's race.

My marathon clinic instructor returned from Big Sur this week and sent me an email asking about how it's been going these last couple weeks. I excitedly reported my recent PRs, to which he replied "You still need a PR in a full marathon!" I guess I won't be retiring just yet.

My 4th race in 4 weeks is coming up this weekend: the Mississauga (Half) Marathon. Melanie will be there running her first marathon, so drop by to give her some love! See you at the finish line, Mel! I hope to see fellow bloggers Yumke and Marci out there too, also running the full.

Did I miss anyone?

Post coming soon with goals for the race.

I'm a big fan of Wright socks as well.

Have a good half marathon. I'll be running one a bit further south (and a bit slower LOL). Give Melanie a hug for me.
