400, 19, 8, 4:45, 10, 36

Blogging by the numbers...

400: My lord, this is my 400th post since I launched this blog in December, 2005. The blogging heats up when I'm marathon training...

19: ...which leads me to note that I have 19 weeks until Marathon day. Actually, the training program is 18 weeks long, but I launch next week with a nice race...

8: ...that is just the first of many. Last night, I decided to do some major planning, so I filled up my racing schedule that will have me doing 8 races from now till Marathon day on Oct. 28.
4:45: ... so the craziness begins just as the weather heats up. I forced myself up at 4:45 a.m. to beat the heat (and becuase I had dinner scheduled tonight...

10: ... thinking I was smart, I decided to do 10K in a very easy manner...

36: bringing my total mileage so far this week to a whopping 36K

That's quite the list! I guess I"ll be seeing you at the Midsummer night's run. Congrats on the 400th post BTW. I might do the zoo run if I can BQ at scotiabank.

Woah 4:30 AM! You're dedicated and the marathon haven't even started yet! =)

I think we should do a small breakfast gathering after the Nissan 10 miler! And we should convince Jelly to run the 5K so she'd be there too!

Congrats on the 400th post! I still have ways to go to reach you!

Sonia, yes, we should get together.. not sure about jelly, but i am going to be at a wedding reception the night before where she'll be as well.. maybe she can be talked into it..

Fran, I'll def. seek you out at the midsummer night's.. i glad i'm doing hte 15k.. running in the dark doesn't seem like too much fun.

I don't think it'll be that dark this year since they're starting it relatively early this year compared to last year. The 15k'ers should be finished before it gets dark. I think last year it started at 8pm and it was still light out.
