I Just Did What?

I just registered for marathon number 2!  Clearly I have forgotten all the torture I went through in training for marathon number 1 despite still having 4 very attractive black toenails.

Marathon #2 will be in Pittsburgh, PA on May 4, 2014.


Lo, and then there shall be Iron City (pitcher of) and there shall be pizza.  Yes.

I love (LOVE!) this town, there will be huge support, 5 beautiful bridge crossings, 30,000 other runners, smiley cookies at the end and some decent hills.  Fingers crossed, the Penguins will be in the playoffs too.  I think running a flat marathon would suck for me mentally.  However there are not 700 metres of hills this time.  Marathon 1 climbed a friggin' mountain.

When we first emigrated to Canada 11 years ago it was hard, we lived in a suburb of Toronto, had crap jobs or no jobs at all and didn't know anyone (anyone).  I gained over 35lbs in 6 months (yikes).  In October 2002 we drove to Pittsburgh to watch a hockey game (Pens lost 6-0 to the Leafs, I instantly knew they were my team) and I felt like I had come home.  We randomly met a bunch of crazy people on that trip who I consider to be my best friends.

Who's with me?!
