In typical Shakespeare fashion, we (Rorie, Sue, Diane, Lorna, Jackie, Susan E., Phyllis, Lee and Suzanne) joined hundreds of other similarly clad angels, nymphs and mortals as we frolicked in the evening mist. (okay, maybe not frolic, and it was more rain than mist by the end) in the colourful and fun 15k Midsummer Nights Run on Saturday night. It was certainly a nice change from walking along the Lakeshore.
Shorter days, cooler weather and the calendar are telling us that summer is drawing to a close. I’m ready for Fall, how about you?
A few training notes:
- Tuesday will be our last hill workout before we head back to the Reservoir for intervals
- There may be a few walkers out on Thursday if you want to join them. On a Thursday in September we’ll walk by Phyllis’ house to graze on her raspberry bushes, as a reward for coming out on a Thursday night.
- On Saturday, the long walk for the half marathoners coincides with a medium distance for the marathoners….we’ll spend most of the morning together.
If you haven’t been out for a while, don’t worry, you don’t need to walk the long distances. Just come out, we’d love to hear what you’ve been up to.
