This past Sunday saw Loving Husband and I at the Terry Fox Run.
I’d like to think of myself as a zen runner, not overly fussed by timing, splits and such. So, the idea of entering a race is not particularly attractive: they are expensive, the crowds can be overwhelming, and the race Ts are usually scratchy & itchy.
The above quote is printed on the back of our Terry Fox Run Ts; I had ample time to meditate on it as I ran behind fellow runners. If I can, even in the smallest way, help by running, then why not? And let’s face it, there is something addictive about being amongst kindred minds & spirits who have woken up extremely early (morning races) or are braving the heat of the afternoon sun (evening races) to support a cause. And okay, there is that teensy part of me who feels a sense of achievement finishing the course; better still if it’s a little faster than anticipated.
We have already signed up for the next charity run: Running Hour – Run So Others Can. Come join us?
