I got the official email from Vancouver Sun Run today and I am excited! This year will be my 4th year completing this 10km race. Last year I completed it in 1hr 12 min and my goal this year is....ONE HOUR!
If there is a race happening in your city, I highly recommend that you try it. All those bridges and roads that you usually drive over take on a whole new look when you run over them. For me, it's Burrard Street Bridge here in Vancouver that makes me go back every year. The view of the ocean as you start over the bridge to the view of city as you look back is absolutely breathtaking.
