I wasn’t 100% confident in my hip, it was a very hard decision not to run the Ottawa Marathon but Dave and I think it’s the mature one. I’m sticking with elite marathon for a few years more so want to treat my body well and hopefully it can return the favor in the near future with a fast time.
I’m now in Ottawa and will still be apart of this great race weekend. I’ll be at the following.
2:00pm, Expo for a Q&A with runners and to talk about your experience as an elite in the media booth – see Star on the map: http://www.runottawa.ca/exhibitors/expo-map
6pm-7pm, 10K Finish Line for live broadcast of the Ottawa 10K – you’ll find info about the roster here: http://www.runottawa.ca/media/registered-elites/2013-elite-news It will be my first time ever doing commentating a race, should be fun.
8:30-9:30am – Marathon Finish line for Marathon broadcast with Mark Sutcliffe and Krista Duchesne
The Ottawa Marathon and Ottawa 10K will be broadcast worldwide at www.runottawa.ca and locally on Rogers-TV (channel 22).
When in Kenya this past winter I met Johana Kariankei, a runner and bracelet making who owns a small shop called Olympics Corner located just outside High Altitude Training Center.
