My Marathon Info

My Name:Ian Service
My Race:Marathon
My Number:1666

Sunday is the big race that I’ve been training for all summer long, The Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon! I’m getting really excited. Only one more training run left and a lot more carbs to absorb to give me the energy to finish in my goal 3 hours and 45 minutes. Since it’s my first marathon, (first race actually) I’m not too sure how well this will go so I won’t be heart broken if I miss my goal time. I think as long as I finish under 4 hours I’ll be really happy with my time, other than that it’s going to be the time to beat for my next marathon in Ottawa in May. (That’s right, I’ve already picked my next race (Around the Bay) and my next Marathon.


Here’s the race info that they sent out for those who are coming down to cheer me on…
