Well, it is Saturday and that means TWO things: No run planned today, and SHOPPING!
We are headed to Sports4 on Bank St. here in Ottawa to gear up. Sports4 is the official running store for this venture.
Shoes, socks, compression gear.... man, there will be a ton of gear, but all needed! Did you know that a pair of running shoes should last you 400-500 kilometers and most marathon training programs have you running 700+ kilometers?
So, you do the math... 1 fall marathon as preparation, 5 marathons in 2011 and maybe another one just for fun! Now THAT'S a lot of shoes!!!
