The Times Colonist (TC) 10K is coming up on April 26th. You can register here.
A little over two years ago I decided on a whim to register for the TC 10K. I wasn’t in particulary good or bad shape. But I had never been a runner and hadn’t run more than about 100 metres. At the time I had no idea what effect that decision would have on the rest of my life (up to this point anyway).
I joined a 10K clinic at the Running Room and started running, sloowwly. To my surpirse I soon discovered that I quite enjoyed running. After 12-weeks of training, the day finally came, and I ran my first 10K. Crossing the finish line I thought I was going to throw-up, but I felt great. I did it!
I ran a couple more 5K and 8K races that year. I had caught the bug. The following year my husband joined me for the TC 10K. And we ran the 1.5K with our daughter.
This year is going to be a family affair. Me, my husband and our 8-year old daughter are all registered for the TC 10K. And we’ll be pushing our 4-year old in the jogging stroller. We are also going to attempt to broadcast the entire run live to the Internet via our mobile phone at http://qik.com/victoriaconcierge Tune in on race day to see it live.
In addition to enjoying my new passion for running, I am very fortunate to have the ability to integrate my passion with my business. Victoria Concierge has put together a package to help runners of all types enjoy their passion by leaving the details to us. Choose from a numer of pre-set packages including; race registration, transportation, accomodations, meals and side events.
