Veni Vidi Vici

And another Times Colonist 10k is done and dusted.

Once again I took part of the training clinic this winter. The training is great, and it gets me out and about. Yeah Panamanianiacs! I’ve done the clinic and the 10k 7 times now. Getting older, but not faster!

I guess it’s time to sign up for the next one – Sidney Seaside 8k in September – anyone else interested in joining me?
