Seems I’m a glutton for punishment. No sooner have I freed myself of all those outstanding running commitments and obligations that have haunted me for the last year, finishing my crazy races and wrapping up all my training plans and settling in for a bit of a break, than I find myself signed up to instruct –yes, INSTRUCT– another running clinic. I must be crazy. On Valentine’s eve, rather than showering my gals with chocolate and flowers, I’ll be introducing myself to another eager class of soon-to-be half-marathoners. The clinic runs until the end of May and our goal race is the Calgary Half Marathon at the start of June. Sign up. Run with us. Let me know if you would like to come in and be a guest speaker. Or just look on from afar with a quiet mix of awe and pity. At least I have an excuse not to train for the full marathon this spring!
