So I decided to register for another race. In two weeks I will be running my first 10k along with my brother-in-law, my running partner in crime. We signed up for the Yonge St. 10k. It promises to be a big, fun, downhill race down Yonge St. My first race, the Yorkville 5k Run, had about 500 runners, and this one has 15,000….quite a difference…I’m excited and a bit scared too!
We figured this would be a nice way to ease into our half-marathon on May 6th. Plus the starting line is just a few blocks from my house. How could I resist?
I don’t plan on “racing” the 10k, as I don’t want to get injured close to the half-marathon. I plan on taking it slow and easy, with the goal of having fun and just finishing.
Readers, any of you out there planning on running the Yonge St. 1ok?
