Friday night in Calgary was a fun night at the track for me and a few friends. A small group of runners met up at the new 400 meter track for a fun event put on some members of the Calgary Roadrunners. We raced first for 2,000 meters, then took a short break. Following the break we raced again, this time for 1,000 meters and finally after a really short break the last event was a race of 600 meters.
As a runner I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night, can you?

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.
