    Excuses. We all make ’em


    It’s too cold.

    It’s too hot.

    It’s raining.

    The weather is nice so someone might see me.

    I’m tired.

    I don’t have time.

    I don’t have any clean running clothes.

    It’s dark out.

    I’m too slow.

    I think I might be coming down with a cold.

    My running partner bailed.

    They stopped making my favourite shoe model.

    I stayed up too late last night.

    My iPod isn’t charged.

    My watch battery died.

    I have a blister.

    I can’t find my gloves.

    I’m too hungry.

    I’m too full.

    I didn’t eat properly today.

    I’m dehydrated.

    I don’t feel like it.



    Now get out there and run.

    A runner for just over four years, Karen has already completed a marathon, two half marathons and a variety of 5k and 10k races. She describes her first marathon - the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last September - as "a nightmare." However, she met a very interesting person in the process - a man named Sydney who was running his 152nd marathon! Although the race didn't go as well as planned for Karen or Sydney, he showed her that no matter how experienced a runner you are, you can still have a bad day. "Does that mean we shouldn't bother to prepare, or maybe just shouldn't bother at all? Of course not!" says Karen. "In the end, it is what we make it." We like her optimism!
