2011年渥太華週末競跑：半馬拉松比賽前一天的通知 / Ottawa Race Weekend 2011: A day's notice to run a Half Marathon
Because of my Mom's hospitalization and my busy schedule since mid-December 2010, I had not been training for any long-distance runs and intentionally missed the registration for any of the 2011 Ottawa Race Weekend events. On hearing that I would miss participating in the local race for the first time since May 2003, K told me to keep it cool and don't get all depressed.
Admittedly, I was moping and sulking.
So on Friday, when Christine told me her friend D had low iron deficiency and was looking for someone to take her spot to run the half-marathon on Sunday, I jumped at the opportunity. K was happy to hear the news and even offered to go do some cheering on the street !!
It is going to be a challenge to run a half-marathon with only abt a day's notice.
RUN RUN RUN !!!
