Around the Bay 30K Road Race, Hamilton

I have signed up for the Around the Bay Road Race in Hamilton.

They first ran it in 1894, making it the oldest race in North America! Over 5,000 people will run the 30k around the Hamilton Harbour.

For training, I plan to get in a few LSD (long slow distance) runs around 25k before the race. I'll also be doing the Peterborough 1/2 marathon about a month prior.

Goal: sub-3:00

If I reach my goal, I will do the Mississauga marathon in May. If I don't, then I will wait until the spring to do my first full marathon. Stay tuned... :)

Jeez, dude, keep posting with this frequency. I like it.

Suggestion for another post topic:
What's your long-term plan to get to ironman? i.e. running the races in what amount of time, biking, swim lessons etc. How far away do you think you are?
