    Running with the stars


    Another cool thing about running (the list is infinite!): I love the fact that in this sport, I can participate in the same events as the sport’s elite.  I know this idea has been beaten to death, but it is still amazing to me that I can actually run the same race as Haile or Paula, and at the same time!*  Seriously, how many recreational hockey players get to play against Sidney Crosby, especially in a serious event where the results count?

    *okay, so I never have run in the same race as those two particular people, but technically I could!

    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!
