“Courage: the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
~  Maya Angelou

Last weekend I travelled to Vancouver Island to race the Bazan Bay 5k.  I was unsure when I should throw myself back into a race.  I had to take Oct, Nov and some of Dec off last year from a ankle injury.  It has been frustrating and a bit of a struggle getting back into shape but I have been practicing patience.  Going into every workout I remind myself this is one more step to getting back into shape.  I have been focusing more on the effort and less on times.

The whole routine of preparing for a race excites me. On Sunday I stayed really relaxed with no expectations.   I was pleased to run 18:10 and finish strong.  Finishing the race was a feeling of relief and I was so happy and proud of myself.  It was not about the time but proud of myself for getting through the injury then having patience and dedication coming back from it.  Super K had a outstanding race running 15:15 and a big PB for Sabrina Wilkie running 16:41. Ryan Brockerville was a very close second place, PB’s for Kevin F, Ryan Huff, Mark W, Dylan G, Trevor, Aaron, Shannon, and Jenn. Way to Go!  Congrats to everyone that raced!
