I am going to my parents house for the weekend as P and his students are traveling to Waterloo for the last robotics tournament of the season (thank goodness!). I am not “traveling with the team” this time as they go with a giant group from the school. I am renting a car to avoid taking the SUV of death aka the Jeep. It is really pricey gas-wise and the whole death wobble thing is not something I wish to worry about on the 401. By the time you work gas in, it is pretty similar in price (I can barely get to Toronto on a tank in the jeep, but in a regular car it takes about 1/2).
So I looked for a race to do in Toronto as my parents can easily watch Max for me. You are probably asking why that matters? Well, P works all.the.time, which includes weekends so it is hard for me to do other races. I don’t really want to bring Max to most of my races either (it is too complicated). So I will be doing a 5K in the Toronto Beaches on Sunday morning. Since poopy-head enjoys getting up at 6am, I will feed him, put him back down and escape. My Dad wakes up really early so if Max wants to play he will have a buddy.
The course is very flat and it is a smaller race (couple of hundred vs couple of thousand). Oh, and it comes with a tech shirt, not a cotton shirt! Bonus! I’m obviously going to try and PB my 5K, but that might not happen quite yet. I have not had a good running week since I’ve had too many commitments in the afternoon. Even though the weather is looking cold for tomorrow I am going to go for a small, steady run regardless!
Alrighty, I’m out of here for a few days!
