This week I’d like to feature Canadian Marathoning, eh. The site is written by an avid group of runners who love to convert the non-believers about running and fitness! They have compiled the most frequently asked questions they could think of and put them on the web for your learning and enjoyment.
The site answers question on topics including: Marathon Training, Triathlons, Nutrition, Running Shoes and Apparel. There’s even a site map that lists everything the site has to offer. Didn’t find the answer you need? Select the Ask Us a Question link and get your answer.
We are always looking for Web sites with great advice, tips and information for our readers or a blogger with an interesting story to tell. If you’ve got a Web site or blog you would like to see featured, leave a comment with the details.
For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
