Crazy, Busy Life

There are times in my life, and certainly with my career, that the wheel of life increases its pace to an extremely fast and crazy speed. This past week was one of them. I haven't run since last Sunday, and I didn't write a blog all week either! My job just had too many demands.....

One important task I did accomplish that wasn't work related was that I registered for the Ottawa Race Weekend Half marathon. Good thing I did, as registration for the Half was officially closed yesterday, with 10,500 runners signed up!

There's an important change in this year's race. The Canadian Breast Cancer Network is officially partnered with the Ottawa Race Weekend 2011, and anyone that wants to fundraise for this important organization may do so by registering through the Running Room. There's still room for anyone who wishes to run a 5 or 10k or the full marathon.

The Canadian Breast Cancer network is the national network and voice for breast cancer survivors, including young breast cancer survivors and those with the lesser known metastatic breast cancer. They provide online information for anyone who has been newly diagnosed, and survivors and their families.

I will be running the half marathon, and doing my part to raise funds for this organization. Anyone who is interested in helping, volunteering or fundraising for this event can check out their website at www.cbcn.ca. There's also a link to the Running Room site from there.

Why not start a team of friends and family and have fun and make it a party? Better yet..........if you are not active and exercising regularly, now is a good time to lace up those running shoes for a cause. You will feel good not only for doing something beneficial for your body and mind, but also for a worthy cause.

See you out there running!
