8 New Things

In 8 wonderful days...

  • Running A Marathon (check back 2 more posts for race report)
  • Walking like I was 96 for more than one day (which means I aged about 14yrs per mile)
  • Bath Bombs at Lush
  • Hot Yoga where I felt right at home with other runners (and I met an ironman or two)
  • A New Hairstyle
  • A new Ipod
  • A new perspective on life
  • A New Race list for next season

See, I told you I'd turn it into a Running Post. I have a pretty intense race season planned for next year, and I am pretty much excited about it all.


  • Jingle Bell Run: With some girls from work! It's going to be a blasttt:) You get to wear a Santa Suit. It's at 10k run.
  • Resolution Run: December 31st. Just because you get a wicked running jacket with zip off sleeves so it turns into a vest.

January and February are for training:)


  • Chilly Half Marathon: It's apparently a really good race (or atleast I'm assuming that becuase it sells out so ridiculously fast)
  • Around the Bay: I did this one last year. This time it's going to be an A race and it's going to be a wicked awesome time.


  • Harry's 8k Spring Run Off for Prostate Cancer: Why not, right?


  • Sportinglife 10k: Everybody (or a lot of people) I know have done it...So I want to do it too. Not a good reason, Iknow. But whatever.
  • Mississauga Half Marathon: With Mr. Science teacher whos been keeping up with his running and is even considering buying a Garmin. He must be getting serious. ;)
  • Ottawa Marathon: Another A race. It'll be a Rockin' good time. And I'll convince some fellow Canadian bloggers to run this race with me and we can have another blogger meet up;)
  • Women's Only Half Marathon: I'm not sure If I'll run this one, but I'm thinking I will volunteer. Considering it will be the week after Ottawa.


  • Olympic Distance Triathlon: Haven't found one yet. But it'll be fun. Another A race


  • Peterborough Half Iron Distance: Totally an A race. I'm not sure how reasonable it is. My dad doesn't think it's reasonable....I guess I have to do it now:P


  • Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon: I must take revenge on the course and run a sub 4hr marathon. Infact, Training for this feat starts now!:)


  • Run for the Cure: I haven't done a 5k in almost 2 years...I better get on that..
  • Zoo Run: Because, why not?
  • Toronto Half Marathon: Again, why not? Just for fun!

So I have about 15 races planned for next year!! That's a lot. I guess if I just sign up for one race per paycheque it's not going to be that bad.My internet only works on my parents computer right now cause someone messed around with it so I'm going to try and catch up with you guys after class.

Be a great day. Enjoy the Sunshine (Or whatever weather you're having.)

Wow lots of race coming in 2009 :)

I am doing ATB, HIM Peterborough and Sauga Full.

Probably squeeze in a tri somewhere in there as well.

Me and some frends are going to practice open swimming next year. If you are interested, let me know.

OMG! Now I am totally excited about 2009. I need to get my plan in order and probably start registering soon.

I will FOR SURE see you @:
Chilly Half

During the tail end of the marathon, when the course was dreary and I was losing my mind, I said I WILL NEVER UN THIS RACE AGAIN. Sure enough, the next day, I decided I will also seek revenge on that beast. :D

Anyway, a tri too?? You go girl!

Great schedule. I'll have done 13 races (including 3 marathons) this year by the end of the month so 15 in a year doesn't seem so unreasonable.

That's right. It's never too soon to start planing for 2009. Looks like a great handful of races... and a variety as well! Very exciting!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for running the Jingle Bell Run!!!

Holy crap, you are awesome! I love all of the races you have planned. You will definately see me at the Chilly Half and ATB. I always run Ottawa, but I think this year I will just run the 10K there, but we will see. I can't wait to read all of your race reports!

I am a new reader, so I am just catching up. That looks like an amazing schedule. And we will cross paths whether we know it or not at a lot of those races!

Which Resoultion Run are you doing? I work at the Aurora Running Room, so that is where I will be!

Good luck in 2009!

That looks like a large race schedule...and a lot of good living! What's the alternative, sitting on the behind!? Good for you.

At 1:02 PM , Blogger chia said...

Great schedule! I started on mine as well and realized that I don't make that much money LOL!

Happy running!
