So I've spent the last couple weeks sidelined with a toe injury. I wish I could tell you some elaborate tale in which how it happened, such as saving someone from impending doom or even the end result of dilegent overtraining but alas, it was a simple case of walking into my closet wall. Hey, it was dark! So it's almost healed and I'm looking forward to getting out for a run this weekend...especially since the Marathon is in a mere 4 weeks!!!!!
In other news, Ang and I spent last weekend at the Suburu Ironman Canada in Penticton, BC which isn't far from where we live. It was INCREDIBLE!!! There were over 2600 atheletes from elite to novice....small to large....fit to barely fit. It was amazing. We volunteered at the 12mile running station handing out orange slices and bananas to runners as they gasped there way past us. It was hot and for those not familiar with what an Ironman'er goes through in this event let me tell you...after (we hope) oodles of time training, they begin with a casual 3.5k(2.2miles) swim, followed by a simple 160k (100mile), and then just cause they are now warmed up, they finish it off with a jolly 42.2k(26.2miles) run. No problemo! Sounds like a perfect way to spend a Sunday! LOL Ang and I are aiming to do it in 2013....gonna bring me some waterwings! HAHA
Anyhow...so that's all for now. I'll keep ya's posted on how the Marathon goes-upright and smiling is my only goal!
Remember to keep on, keepin on!
