That was the line on one of the t-shirts I saw at Vancouver’s Gay Pride Parade today. It was awesome! It was such a positive, fun, happy environment.
It was also the longest parade in the world. And after running 26km, standing for 3 hours wasn’t the best experience for my legs. Luckily, I forced myself to roll them out at the gym afterwards. I seriously need to invest in a foam roller. They make me feel 100% better. Or someone can make me one? I’m not very artsy…
Sunday’s Long Run consisted of running to the Olympic Oval aka Richmond and back. I liked the route, it was a little hilly at parts but nothing major and we even got to run over Oak Street bridge! I don’t know why but I love running over bridges, it just feels so cool. We took a little break and did a mini tour of the Oval- where Olympic magic happened aka the speed skating track but is now a lot of basketball courts?! The run felt great for the first half, ok for the second bit but by the last few clicks my legs were feeling pretty tired.

I forgot my Garmin for the second run in a row! It actually was kind of “freeing” to run without it and I didn’t really miss it. Especially because we had Andy giving us tips on Advanced Marathoning– I think I need to buy this book. Not that I am advanced, it just sounds really interesting.
I need a race to train for… any 10 km’s or half’s coming up?
