Three Things Thursday

1. Thank you very much to everyone who voted for my ridiculous running outfit over at Shut Up & Run! There's still time to vote, although Angie and her potato are dominating.




2. After Tuesday's 10K at lunch, I did indeed head out for another 5 in the evening. Make that another "Twosday". Wednesday I was up early for a short run before work, followed by my usual Wednesday night 10K with the group. That's right, double-doubles! It's been a busy week and with upcoming trip this weekend, I've been squeezing in the miles whenever I can. Tonight we have 6 x Yasso 800 on deck. Will I finally find my discipline on the first 800?


3. Tomorrow morning I leave for a weekend in Montreal with friends. On Sunday we'll be running the 21k de Montréal and I convinced one of my friends to join me for an extra 7 miles before the race to make it a 20-miler. It should be a fun and scenic race with the route on Ste-Helene and Notre-Dame and Islands. I wonder if the kilometres will be marked en français? ;)




Have a great weekend!

I had a dream last night that I was flying a helicopter through Montreal and there were Grizzly bears running through the streets attacking lemon trees. I have never piloted a helicopter, nor been to Montreal or even seen a real live Grizzly bear, but I wish you the best of luck with your pre-run and race this weekend!!!!
