Way to go to all of you this week! We rocked a total of 1256.35km for week two!
We covered a little less distance this week one but I also didn’t receive totals from two people. I did added the totals that were outstanding so we have that helping us. The majority of you ran more this week than in the first week which is great but there is no pressure from me to have a certain number from each of you. This relay is about bringing us together and getting us off the couch so if you walk or run one kilometer or 100km it all counts and I am happy. Keep it up!
I was asked to map out how far we have traveled and I decided to use the starting point of this relay as my hometown of Victoria, BC. So far we have gone a total of 2589.18km. Do you want to know who we have stopped by to say “Hello” to on our journey so far?

“Macmillan are a cancer support charity where they offer tremendous support not only to people who suffer from cancer but also the families as well. They’re a big charity in the UK. My reason for raising money for them is not only to enable them to help more people but also to raise the awareness of getting tested early if anyone start displaying unusual symptoms.”
I love that this relay is now benefiting each of you physically and charities too. If you decide to run for a charity next week just let me know when you email me your total.
Now on a personal note I reached my own milestone in a run since January. I ran 17.78km for the first time Saturday morning with Cindy since getting myself running again. It was difficult but I had Cindy to help push me through it. I was happy for the run for two reasons. The first one is because it was good training to prepare for the half marathon we have on March 23 as part of the Vancouver Island Running Series. The second reason is because we talked about the Whistler Half Marathon on June 7th and we have made it official. We have both registered and she and I will be headed away for a race and a girls weekend. I am excited because it will be my first destination half marathon and I look forward to it!
Have a great week of running and walking.
Where is your next destination run? Have you made a race part of a girls weekend or a guys weekend?
