My Portrait a Day on May 25

Filed under: Uncategorized — Katinka @ 6:46 pm

Woke-up at 3:45 am. Drove from Hudson to Ottawa at 4:30 am. Started the Ottawa Marathon at 7:00 am with 7,000 fellow marathon runners. Finished the Ottawa Marathon 4 hours and 12 minutes later.
My 4:15 pace bunny, Gary kept me going for most of the race at a very comfortable speed. It was a lot of fun to be part of the big 40th anniversary run in Ottawa and get to high-five the Kenyan elite runner Wilson Kiprop. He won the 10K in Ottawa on Saturday; it took him 28 minutes to run 10K! I didn’t fly through this marathon and finish with a personal best, but I ran my most enjoyable marathon with no pain and I wasn’t hitting “the wall” at 32K. I’m already looking forward to my next marathon in Toronto on October 19th.
