Race Preview: RBC Run For The Kids 2015

Race website

The Race

This is a fundraiser for Youth Mental Health initiatives at Sunnybrook Hospital.

There are three options: 5k, 7k, or 15k.

Registration is free!  Yay.  Well... except you need to raise $100 to participate for the hospital ($40 for youth, $20 for kids).  If you hit up a few friends/family $100 isn't really that much.  And it's for a good cause, right?  RBC generously matched employee contributions, so $50 could get you into the show.  Good deal.

My Race

I'll be doing the 15km.

I'm very far from peak running shape, just haven't been doing the miles and my weight is relatively high (high end of "normal" BMI).  So I don't really have any expectations here, just going to go out and give it all I've got and see what happens.  I'm thinking something around a 5:10-5:15/km pace, push at the end if things feel good.
