So, another Blogland game, 4th photo...



Yes, here we are after the very first ever Canada Army Run Half Marathon. We have collected out dog tag medals, which by the way are totally awesome and we are headed off to lunch and to have a few adult BEvERages. It was an amazing day, with perfect weather, good friends and a really well organised group of volunteers.

Today I am starting to get a wicked cold, but I'm sucking back vitamins, orange juice and I have just received the Canadian equivalent of a Dunk'n Donuts Coffee, our world famous Tim Horton's coffee. So I am happily sipping my way through the morning.

True half marathon training is in full swing, this weekend I'll jam in a 12K run on Sunday and tomorrow will be a nice easy 8 or 10K around the area where I live...

I am going to really concentrate on working my core area this winter at the gym, I'm hoping for a little faster results with my races in 2009. I'm no speed demon but it would be nice to see some improvement!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

This has been my favorite blog taggy game of all. Great pic!

Xenia said...

I refuse to jump on this photo bandwagon. Only because I've looked at the 4th photo in my 4th folder and it's boring as well. ;)

Get better soon, Lily!

Melanie said...

feel better soon, and enjoy the Timmy's! Have a great weekend!

Kim said...

We're twinkies! I'm drinking my Dunkin Donuts coffee right now too!

Sounds like the half training is going well. Consistent core work should help you pick up some free speed at the end of your runs.

It doesn't matter how fast you are, if you are improving, you are doing awesome!

Viv said...

Great pictue, races always look like a great time when you are there! I hope you can shake off that wicked cold brewing...

Marlene said...

Getting to the core of the problem! Speed is all relative, so don't worry about it. Just make sure that you're having fun.

BeachRunner said...

Great pic. Keep on working and having fun!

Bert said...

Great pic! I've heard that it snows quite a bit in Ottawa so you should have plenty of time to work on the core... :-) Good luck!

Judi said...

go to the track for speed. it's helping me so much.

Laurel said...

Tim Hortons is the bomb! We had them in Columbus when I lived there.

But even better than the coffee are the Timbits. Mmmmm....

Good luck on the core training. I always try to do more, but I get so lazy.

Good luck accomplishing all that running. I'm taking a hiatus for a while.

Run Mommy said...

Hope you are feeling better soon! Great pic by the way.

Nat said...

Look at you... :)

Hope you didn't freeze you girl bitts off this morning. It's soooo cold.

(My stomach hates me this morning. No running until I get it under control.)
