So I’ll be working past nine

October 8, 2012

I’ve been slacking a little in the blog department lately, but for good reason.  At the beginning of October I moved back to Guelph. For the past two weeks I’ve been really busy moving, cleaning and setting up the new house.  After I paint a bedroom tomorrow I can say that most of the real work will be done.  It’s great to be back in Guelph although it never really felt like I left since I’ve continuously trained  here a couple of times a week.  I’m going to miss the Hammer and I plan on visiting frequently and running Dundas Valley when I can.

This time of the year is great because the whole Speed River/U of G training group is on a similar plan and workouts are a lot of fun with everyone together.  My plan for the fall is to race a 10 miler, Chiba Ekiden and perhaps a half marathon.  I’m pretty much in 10km mode because that’s the work I need to do to run well over these distances after all the marathon work I’ve put in already this year.

This weekend I’ll be pacing Stephen Chelimo at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.  The plan is to go through halfway in 64:30 and continue until 25km. If you feel like reading more check out this article. I’m also going to be speaking at the STWM expo on Friday at 1:00pm with Peter Fonseca, Bruce Deacon and Eric Gillis.  We’re only scheduled for 30 minutes so don’t come late if you want to catch our discussion about racing the Olympic marathon.

The Kids for Kenya Toilet Run on Sept 29th went well.  We raised over $3000 and that will build a latrine and keep a school open in Kenya which will impact many lives!  It was the first year so hopefully it gets bigger each year. 

Over and out.

    Reid, Good to hear from you-hope your new quarters are shaping up. So glad you are friends with other marathoners and I know Chilimo will appreciate you helping him in his race. It’s getting cooler down here and would love to have a visit. Love, Nornee
