This week is all about Niagara Falls and the 3 different events that you are taking part in. 10k, half and full. The aches and pains have started to come out. The mind starts with the doubting phase: Did I do enough training, do I have a cold, Why are my legs feeling like lead? Yep: Good old mind, loves to be tricky. Well ignore it. You are going to be great. Starting with a great morning drive, walking to the expo, resting at the hotel, walk to dinner. Speaking of dinner: Reservations are at 6pm at Napoli's corner of Stanley and Ferry. If you have not confirmed with Jeff Hodgson or myself about being there, DO IT. The call is being made Thursday to confirm with numbers. $30 cash all incl (tax and grat) Dick and Cal will be there with you too so if you have any doubts, concerns, last minute pace challenges, they will help you< Walk back to the hotel, prepped your race morning clothes, don't forget your bib and crawl into bed. DON"T FORGET TO SET YOUR ALARM. Good luck to all of you and STICK TO YOUR PLAN.
For us back at the ranch, I will be your running partner.
Mo'Run Sarnia is coming out with a bang. Your committee is working hard to make this event fun and competitive. I will be your volunteer coordinator and I have already started the list, if you plan to not run please come out and support by allowing me to use you on a corner, (bahaha). Also, we are asking for your help in collecting a door prize from anywhere you go and might think would donate (ex: massage, GC from a restaurant, chiro, pedi, coffee card, etc.) and if anyone of you own a business or is a friend of a business owner who uses those porto-signs, Please ask if they will put up our race to promote men's health. Did you pick up a flyer to post in your lunchroom, office space, grocery store, chiro office, you catch my drift. If you haven't ask us and we will get you some to put up for us. We want this event to gather awareness for Men's Health and we support it 100%. You will see us in Novembers First Monday and Sport Express. Check us out and THANK YOU.
To Carol and Michele with Elizabeth - You guys motivate me to be better and give back. Congrats ony your first Team Triumph adventure today at the Pinery and to everyone else that may have been there and witness it.
Enjoy this week of easy running or walking, go over any lose ends that you are not sure of and rest and start building up your energies that we spoke about on Wednesday night for Race Prep.
Have a great week
