Had to run Saturday evening cause I worked all day Saturday. Do you think I wanted to? Not on your life! We were doing 13 km and I was tired...just worked 6 days in a row and had to work again Sunday morning. We ran out Topsail Rd and the wind was at our backs...it felt good for a change. We detoured down by Bowring Park and down Waterford bridge Rd. It was cool and no rain...perfect running conditions. We chat while we run and I've learned a great deal about my running partner but as she reminds me....what happens on the run, stays on the run.......Are you a runner? Yes I am!

I wasn't sure if I would be able to run Thursday night. It didn't hurt to breathe anymore but all my muscles were still tight....I have a horrible habit of running with my shoulder pulled up to my ears. But the schedule said 6 km and well that's what Susanne and I had to do. It was a beautiful night for a run. I love seeing the group...there were lots of PRC out and about. It was a Thursday and well we all know what that means.....hill repeats!!!! Honestly I can't wait to do hill repeats cause that means this freaking marathon training will be over. I just want it to be race day! Truly I'm tired of all the training and it is time to get on with the show. I am looking forward to the faces in the crowd....that is my favorite thing about races, well that and the finish line. The schedule said 6 km but we did 8 km. Are you a runner? Yes I am!

Lots of us develop injuries....the best way to cope is listen to your body. I'm not running tonight due to strained chest muscles. I'll take a run or two off and hopefully be back at it in no time. Rest and ibuprofen are my friends tonight....hope everyone had a great run. Are you a runner? Yes I am!
My name is Pam Collins. I am a mother of three, a wife, a nurse and I discovered about 4 years ago that I could run. Always wanted to but didn't think I could. I remember the first time I saw the Tely 10, I was amazed... really, all those people are running to Bannerman park, impossible. A couple of years in a row I stood at the bottom of Paradise Road and watched in awe....lots of times it brought tears to my eyes. I started with Run 1 and Walk 2. I was determined....I ran in the snow, I ran in the rain....it made me feel strong....it makes me feel special. This year will be my third Tely and I'm hoping it will be my best. I've only been a member of PRC for 10 months, but my involvement in this club has inspired me to complete a half marathon and what I thought would be my ultimate running goal, Cape to Cabot. This club makes me feel strong and so now I have a new goal.....26.2 miles. Am I a runner? Yes I am!
