When fall officially arrives and temperatures start to drop, it is difficult for most to keep up with a disciplined training and exercise schedule. At 2AM on November 1st, the clocks go back and we get extra hour in the day. If your schedule is as hectic as mine, I am pretty sure that you can think of a million things you could do with that time. Adidas Canada is challenging the Toronto community to do more with this extra 60 minutes by participating in their #RunMore10k race this Saturday night.
Night racing isn’t anything I am used to but since my hip injury, I have been welcoming any opportunity to get these legs moving again. Unique in many ways, this will be the only race that ends with the runners going back in time and 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Canadian Olympic Foundation to help our athletes. A flat, out and back route along Martin Goodman Trail will easily allow new runners to pace themselves and it will give novice runners the chance to push their speed limits. Plus, with DJ’s, photo booths and beer/food tents, the finish line at Ontario Place will turn into the coolest post race party ever.
Adidas Run More 10k Race Day Kits
My road to recovery has been much tougher and longer than I had anticipated. The last couple weeks has been all about increasing my strength with weights in the gym and getting a few low km runs in each week. With my next half marathon just around the corner, the Adidas Run More 10k is the perfect event to take some of my race day anxiety away. Having the right treatment team behind me and equipment has been integral part of the process of getting me to the start line. I have tested out roughly 10 shoes over the last month but my body has reacted best to the Adidas Ultra and Energy Boost running shoes during this time. My hip and ankles have been responding very well to the extra foam cushioning and responsive energy of the BOOST technology.
With the race just days away, registration is already full, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come out to party and support those who are running. To learn more about the Adidas Canada Run More program and for all race day information head to RunMore.ca.
