Joyce: There are so many - it’s hard to choose just one! Among my favourites: the excitement of running my first marathon in San Francisco, the exhilaration of crossing the finish line with @belovedrunner for her first marathon at Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, the relief when I realized I ran 4 seconds faster than my goal time at the Army Half in Ottawa, …. I can’t choose just one! 😊
Lisa: It has to be my first full marathon, though it was certainly never on my bucket list. Someone told me the next steps in my running journey should be either a fast half marathon or a slow full marathon. Joyce agreed to be with me for my first full marathon – she’d just completed her first full marathon in San Francisco. So, with no time goal in mind, I went in relaxed but willing to give it my all. It truly was a great experience running 42.2 km with my best friend by my side. I can’t believe that I have now completed 3 full marathons in 12 months.
