After 1030 posts, this would mark the first time I'd actually use a running post for 'work' purposes. At globeandmail.com, we're looking for runners across the country (bloggers, non bloggers) who are interested in sharing tips, their favorite routes. Why? Well, we've just finished a 10K running series (globeandmail.com/running) and no secret really that we have long ambitions -- that is, the next focus will be on half and full marathons. We start up really soon just as training kicks off for fall races.
Anyways, if you're interested, drop me a line in the comments and you can reach me at kyum (at) globeandmail.com.
That got me thinking what my favourite run is at the moment -- after narrowing it down, I think it's the route I take from downtown Toronto to the Beaches in the east. Something about heading out there, where fewer runners tend to go for some reason. You hug the water through trails, pass through industrial lands and soccer fields, and then at the halfway mark you're on the boardwalk where on a beautiful day like last weekend, the beach volleyball courts are full, the yoga by the beach is in full swing and man, you just want to linger, which I usually do, taking an exaggerated gel and water break. But you gotta head back. But that view on the way back of the downtown skyline. Just gorgeous.
Okay, this work post is done. Back to your regularly scheduled blog.
