Toronto Marathon for Marijo & Bryan

Jo and I had a great time this past weekend at the Toronto Marathon. It was a bit of a logistical battle and some thinking had to go into it as to how she was going to run at 8:30 and ensure that I got to my start place at noon. Fortunately we had a lot of help from Jim & Dave. Jo had 4,667 in her race and she was happy coming in with a time around the two hr 20 minute mark. I was fortunate to shave off another three and a half minutes from my recent Pitter Patter race in Belleville and broke the one hr ten minute markfor the first time. There where almost 1,600 runners & walkers in the 5k and this time I didn’t finish last. I found my race very tough with the 2k mark again proving to be the spot where I feel exhausted. Although it was a fairly flat course there was 1 uphill section as well as some sloped areas. We were even interview by CBC Toronto the day before and received a couple of minutes of fame along the way. So we have one more race and it’s the Army run in Ottawa in Sept. We both came home very tired and vowed we’d give ourselves a couple of weeks off from training.
