Last week was the Toronto Marathon (congrats to M on his speedy time), this week is Sporting Life, June 18 is the Waterfront Race, there are a bunch more during the summer and fall, and Banff on Sept. 24 (if you are interested in this last and haven’t been in touch with our fabulous organizer, B, please do so soon).
For those participating tomorrow, we will meet up in the last corral between 8:20 and 8:40. Remember that the TTC opens at 8 and that various bus routes will be affected so govern yourself accordingly! Also remember to fill in your COVID questionnaire first thing.
The forecast is for sunshine and 7 degrees at 8am going up to about 13 (perfect racing weather but a bit chilly to start). We will collect the gang at the finish line as each one comes through and, once we are together, we are planning to head to the Aroma Express Bar in Liberty Village for a well-deserved cuppa and a bite to eat. Please let someone know at the start of the race if you won’t be joining the group.
Can’t tell you how excited I am to be doing an in-person race again. I have always considered Sporting Life the real start of spring and am looking forward to being part of that big happy crowd heading down Yonge Street. Hip, hip, hooray!
