Sept 25, 2010 - update

Well, it was a busy sunday past with the terry fox run, then the aids walk for hope. Here's a pic of me and fellow director of St. John's Pride Inc., Lorne King. We scrambled to put together a team for Pride at the last minute, and we managed to fund raise $20 for the Aids Committee.

Later in the week, i had a meeting with LBGT-MUN's directors, and again later on with their entire team (24 of them in all!). This is a student-run group that keeps a resource centre, as well as plans social and educational events for the LGBT community. The folks running the centre this year seem very interested and passionate about the same things our new corporate entity stands for. I hope to work closely with these folks in the near future on a variety of projects.

not been a busy running week though. in fact, only 1 out of the past 13 weeks have been reasonable for someone who is training for a marathon:

4.7, 1.0, 5.0, 7.0, 33.5, 81.2, 36.0, 13.5, 25.4, 32.1, 8.5, 24.1, 29.4k respectively. oh well, at least there were a few good runs in there in the last two weeks. and what's not here is the 50-70k of walking i did each week.

oh well, i am sure this can act as a lesson as how not to prepare for a marathon, and i am sure i will prove it tomorrow with a very slow finishing time. but you know, i have no doubt in my mind that i will finish, and no doubt that i will not set a personal worst.. so its nice to have some confidence, as well as peace of mind, with where my health and fitness is at these days.
