Kate was a member of Bucket List Toronto who sadly passed away on January 1st. She was only 46. She was a fun loving person who loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was an avid snowboarder, runner and all round fitness junky. She loved live music and had become my concert buddy. She had attended 3 meetups since joining our group and was coming to Scuba Diving on the 16th. We planned to do this race together and she had suggested adding it as a meetup event. So that's what I'm doing.
Take chances, make mistakes, learn, laugh, love, live, succeed, prosper, and most importantly persevere. For everyone dies but not everyone truly lives... Kate lived.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE RSVP'ING YES.
Sporting Life 10K - Walk and/or Run - May 11, 2014
YES ... WALK AND/OR RUN!!!
EVEN IF YOU WALK HALF THE COURSE YOU HAVE STILL COMPLETED A 10K RACE ... AND NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW YOUR TIME
Personally, I HATE RUNNING... just to run but when I have a race I'm working towards it's actually fun. It's amazing how quickly your health improves and how far you can run without stopping.
This is Canada's EASIEST and one of the fastest 10k's anywhere! The course runs right down the middle of Yonge Street!
Team name: Bucket List Toronto (meetup.com)
Wave 6 - this is just our start time - if you are an experienced runner and would prefer to be with a faster wave please do - I will be sub 60min but am still leaving in wave 6
For any of you that have added "Get in Shape" as a New Years resolution or just want to try something new you'll want to do this race. We can motivate each other to succeed and as an added bonus you help send a kid with cancer to camp.
I was sooo out of shape when I decided to run my first 10K that I could barely run up a flight of stairs without getting tired and out of breath. I took The Running Room training course which was a huge motivator. Running with others in the same boat really helped. They put you in groups with runners at the same fitness level so you won't get discouraged by the fast runners flying past you. I have spoken with the Midtown Yonge St. Running Room and if enough members register for the race they will open up an additional 10K training session just for our group starting in early March. The regular cost is $69 + HST but should be less if enough members attend.
Attention fellow runners/walkers.
You've rsvp'ed for this race but now it's time to actually do something about it
As I noted in the description of this event the Running Room has a 10K training clinic which starts March 13th. Please register soon before all the spots are taken.http://www.events.runningroom.com/applications/clinicregistration.php?clinic_id=43941
Weekly sessions for the clinic are held In-Store at 2629 Yonge St.(between Lawrence and Eglington) Clinic members will also have online access to clinic materials and instructors. This online access includes the clinic manual, training programs, training logs, and much more.

"It's All Happening"
PLEASE NOTE: When you rsvp yes to an event it means that you are going, not that you like the idea and might show up if there's nothing good on TV... It means you are going to attend. The biggest complaint I hear from other organizers is that people just don't show up after they've rsvp'ed yes to an event. Unfortunately, I've experienced this as well so I've implement a no show policy. If you do not show up or change your rsvp within 24 hours before the meetup on 3 occasions I will remove you from the group.
I do this for fun guys so... please!
