Yesterday was the 35th Annual Vancouver Sun Run and for some reason I jumped at the chance to give up part of my Sunday morning to subject myself to 10km of torture (and pay for it too!).
Jokes aside, the Sun Run does help raise money for various local charities which was a good enough reason for me to sign up. It is also rewarding to participate in the largest 10 km road race in Canada (over 41,000 runners this year) with such a long history. There is something quite humbling about participating in an event with so many other people.
Though I was happy to join in for a worthy cause, I was quite pleased once it was all over and I could hobble over to Medina to eat an obscene amount of food. I think the best part of race day is that you can justify shamelessly eating as much as you want because you feel like you deserve it.
All in all, it was a successful run and an excellent opportunity to be able to represent the company. I will certainly be back next year, hopefully as a member of the official RE Royalties team!
Thanks for reading!
