I got into running a couple of years ago. I started in Toronto, and would just run around Queen’s Park a bunch. I don’t remember how many times. Later on, when I came to Hamilton, I tried to keep up the running. I think I ran maybe 15kms one time, from Westdale to Dundas and back. That was a big deal for me at the time.
Since then, I run a half-marathon back in November 2011:
Just this past Sunday (March 25th), I ran in North America’s oldest road race, a 30kms race around Hamilton bay. It’s called – not surprisingly – Around the Bay.
Here’s my finishing video…I wanted to do a heal kick at the end…it’s hard after running for so long :S
I recently watched this cool short doc by The Nature of Things, about how our ancestors, before being able to out-smart our prey, simply out-ran them. It’s an interesting idea…plus Ultra-marathon runners are my heroes. Watch it here.
Finally, has anyone ever heard of Dean Karnazes? Jesus…this guy can run! What? 50 marathons in 50 states, in 50 consecutive days? No problem!
Now I’ve got to decide if I’ll sign up for the full 42.2k marathon in November….
