Last weekend I ran with some coworkers in the Scotiabank 5K race in Vancouver - the course was beautiful, starting on the edge of Stanley Park and following the water along Beach ave. The day was sunny, but not too hot. About half our team ran the 5K, and the other half ran the half marathon.
We raised over $4000 for an organization called Kidsport - they provide financial support to children that would not typically be able to afford to participate in organized sports (http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/index.php?page=british_columbia_welcome).
My time was about the same as it was for the 5K on Mother's Day, but I wasn't too surprised as I've only been able to fit in a run about once a week these days. Summer activities, setting up our new house, and working full time with 2 little kids is making it a struggle, but I'm going to need to step it up as my next goal is a 10K in the fall.
Here's a pic of me and my colleague Megan after the 5K on Sunday.
