One of my adventures planned for 2024 is to take part in two major running events, the Times Colonist 10k in April and the Victoria Half Marathon in October. I ran both in 2022, but missed last year because of injury and lack of opportunities for training because of my involvement in our house renovations (I carried out all the demolition work). My goal is to run the 10k in under 51 minutes and the half in under two hours. Lots of training to do. I’ve begun gently, running along the E&N trail that passes just behind where I’m staying at the moment. Plenty of scope to increase distances and reduce times over the next few months.
