June is always a busy time in my home. Both my wife and I are trying to wrap up the year in our respective schools, the kids are ready to be done with school, there are birthdays, and there are retirements. With all that, there is little time for running. At least we were getting out to walk the dog 3km most nights. Still, a walk is not a run. I did try to get out for a run one night, but it was interrupted by President Obama’s visit to Ottawa. Apparently my route along the Rideau Canal interfered with the security of his route to the airport.
So we’ve made it to July, and now my running can resume. My brother-in-law Has signed me up for another Sprint Triathlon July 31 so I have a few weeks to get ready for that. Compared to the Early Bird, I should be in much better shape and have a better result. My only concern is the open water swim, but at 500m it won’t be that terrible. Starting tomorrow I will be biking to summer school (a little over 8km each way).
Tonight in running a 5k fun run to support my daughter’s field hockey club, The Nepean Nighthawks. I haven’t run in over 2 weeks, so it will nice to be moving again.
