Watch me run!
Speaking of my upcoming half marathon, if you would like to follow along with my race on Sunday, you can do so through the magic of the internets!
Just go to: http://www.sportstats.ca/display-results.xhtml?raceid=25175 and enter my name.
There are four timing points that should show up in the “results” section of that page as I cross each of the timing mats: Start Line, 5.5km, 10.5km, Finish Line. The half marathon starts at 7 am Pacific Daylight Time, but since I’m in the third corral1, I won’t cross the start line until all the runners from the first (white & yellow) and second (blue) corrals go through.
I thought there was going to be a live video feed of the finish line, like they had at the Victoria marathon, but searching through the race website, I don’t see any mention of that, so you’ll just have to make do with seeing my results!
Or you can always come out and watch the race live. Here’s the route:
Note the elevation map at the bottom: hooray for that nice long downhill at the start!
- The third corral in this particular race is called the “pink” corral. I’m not sure why it’s the “pink” corral, but I guess it at least matches my hideous, hideous running shoes. [↩]
