Fun Times: An Outlook

Good Morning!

2014 has started out a bit rough for me, with things happening that I was not even close to anticipating.  In an effort to learn from the lessons that these few rough months have taught me, I am looking forward with a new, clear set of eyes and focus for fun times and opportunities for the next few months as well as some of the big ones for the rest of the year.

    • Billy, I am not from the Toronto area, but I do know that there are a few other races happening in the next few months that are being organized by Mountain Equipment Co-op (they are very affordable and well run, but barebones–I have signed up for all of the ones in my hometown of WInnipeg) and by the same folks who do the Yonge Street 10K (which is the Canada Runner Series, I believe). I would check some of those out. Good luck!
