Calgary area - come join us!

So, if anyone else is reading and/or blogging in the Calgary area, here is our chance to have a little bloggy meetup! Come do the resolution run with us!

Right now myself, Jen from Triathlete Within and Nicole from Haute Runner are doing it. Let me know if you want to meet up with us. We won't plan to stay together during the run as I'm sure everyone has different time goals, but if you're in the area, it would be great to make some connections.

As for me, I had my fastest recorded run yesterday. Early morning, I turned off my alarm, too exhausted to run. Instead I went out in the evening when my husband got home.

I decided to really push and see what I could do. I'm happy to say that even without race day adrenaline, I managed an average of 6:12/km (about a 10 minute mile) for 5.5km (3.4 mi). For me, that's pretty fast, and is longer then I've ever maintained that pace before.

It also proved to me that I can run in the evening. Sometimes I get really stuck in my routine and feel like I have to do it the way I have been. It's good to have solid routines, but it's also important to be flexible.


  1. I'm in! Well, I was already planning to go...
    You can find me with Nicole (Haute Runner)

  2. Oh what fun! I`m north of Edmonton a bit and was looking at doing the Res Run there. Good luck with it that speed looks amazing!

  3. I've said it already but Wohoo on pushing that speed! I'd totally meet up with you ladies if I was in the same city.

  4. Holy speedy lady!! Nice work!!

    I of course will be there! I'm really looking forward to it!

  5. Looking forward to meeting you both too!!
    And Jarrett won't be with me during the race... he is much too fast for me!
