CDR – June and July
Training has ramped up over the past few weeks and as of today (July 10) there are only 22 days till race day. While there are days where I feel I need more time to train and get in the long runs, I am also looking forward to being finished with all the volume and just getting to the start line and doing the race.
As I am getting closer to race day, my thoughts are starting to turn to what I want to do for the rest of the year and then what to do next year. I already have two races post the Death Race and they are the Gatineau Park Marathon and the Las Vegas Marathon. I recently saw advertising for the Canadian Sears Run (Ottawa to Montebello) that I will sign up for and run solo (100km).
As for next year, I haven’t landed on a particular race just yet. I do need to undertake some home renovations so more than likely anything I do will be within driving distance.
