Kelowna here we come

I just registered for my second full marathon in the Okanagan in October. This is very exciting. There seems to be less doubt this time around.

What's also exciting is the news that db has registered for the half marathon. I'm still astounded that he's running, but have no question whatsoever that he can go the distance.

We have the same start times so after he finishes his race he can catch up with me somewhere along the route or maybe at the finish for those photos. Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch him run his first race. It's a bit like not being able to see my sis's first race. I won't be there to cheer him on or take the sideline photos, but he'll know I'll be thinking about him. Of course the thought of running the half distance together did occur to us, but we have such different paces and I'm pacing myself a little differently for a longer distance and I know he's going for something a little faster.

There is chance that my stepdad, P, will be joining us, but he's got a lot going on and might be too busy to get away so we'll have to wait and see.

I'm so excited.

That's brilliant! I"m so impressed- it's wonderful for you both to share this together.

Impressive, indeed. You must be so pleased that db has embraced running so eagerly. Shame that you'll have to miss his first race, but I'm sure if he keeps it up, you'll be able to run together one day, no?

That's excellent! Good luck.

Thanks everyone. I'm sure we'll find an event that we can do together. Actually, I'm thinking of one already that has a couple registration. I'll have to look into that for 2008.
