Andi, I ran the Bridge City Boogie last year, and really enjoyed that route, and running under the new bridge. I was sad to hear that they had cancelled it for this year. The SK marathon is a pretty route too, with all the flowers blooming and running around the parks.

I haven't signed up for anything yet. I blew my heel playing tennis on holidays, and am just now getting back into walking. I'm thinking Melfort Multi in the fall will be the first racing I will be able to look at. The first 5k of that route is nice, but the last 5k goes through the main part of town so no parks. It's a well-organized event though, and I really enjoy it.

Thanks, Judi! Did I know you live in SK, too? That's so neat! I was planning on signing up for the Bridge City Boogie in June (it's a lot less intimidating than the SK Marathon), but they've cancelled it, so the kids and I doing Color Me Rad together instead (again!). I'm just going to work on running 10K on my own for now - if I run the perimeter of my town twice, I'm pretty much there. I haven't looked to far yet to see what else is available for this year in our area. I should really get on that! emoticon

Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Hi! I'm Andrea! I started running about 4 years ago and fell in love with it immediately. I don't know why I ever thought I'd hate it! I was interrupted from running when we discovered we were expecting our littlest mister - it was a high risk pregnancy, so I had to set running aside for awhile. Last year I found my groove again and this year I am working on running a 10K. I turn 40 next year, and I promised myself I would sign up for a half then. And then told my kids, so of course they are totally going to hold me to it!

Looking forward to getting to know you all better!

Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
