New Canadian record
I was pleased to clock a personal best time of 34:22 at the BC 10,000m Championships held September 1 and ecstatic to discover I’d taken down the existing Canadian age-group record of 34:49.
This recent test has given me confidence as I work through final preparations for my marathon debut, now just a few weeks away.
Eye on the prize
I’ll have another record in my sights when I hit the start line of the Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 14. The current Canadian masters record (for women over-40) of 2:39:45, was set back in 2002 by Danuta Bartozsek at the Ottawa Marathon.
I’m looking forward to the race. I feel prepared and trust in my training, but respect that anything can happen over the 42k distance.
