Only 24 more days until my identical twin sister and I go head to head at the Run for the Grapes 5 Km race. We haven’t run against each other since high school. That’s almost 20 years ago (almost…Yikes). We have both been in races recently, but not racing against/with each other. In May, I ran my first obstacle race, you can see a short clip of the event here. My sister did an obstacle race as well, but she also ran in a 10 Km run, impressive!
This is the race we have trained for several months now. We have both been working hard at reducing our race pace! I’m aiming for 5 Km/min. A bit ambitious, maybe! The following weekend, I’m running as part of a corporate team in the CIBC Run for the Cure 5 Km run. I’m also looking forward running along side my co-workers! If I don’t meet my goal in the Run for the Grapes, I have a back up race!
Next year, I’d like to challenge myself to a 10 Km race and perhaps make my way up to a 1/2 marathon? Julie, are you in with me?
