Disclaimer: I’ve received a complimentary entry into the Oktoberfest race at Spruce Meadows in exchange for promotion and reviewing the race. As always, all opinions are my own and I wouldn’t be participating in the event if I didn’t believe in it.
I’m really excited that I’ll be able to participate in all of the Spruce Meadows Run Series events this year.
In August I was able to participate in the Run Through the Meadows at the last minute since I didn’t end up going to SeaWheeze.
The more I run, the more I’ve come to enjoy the smaller races. I find smaller races really give a good feel for the running community, and I welcome that, especially since I haven’t been running much lately. Whoops.
In 11 days I’ll be lacing up for the first time in far too long (my last run was Run Through the Meadows, but I’m hoping to get out for a few runs between now and then!) and bundling up since winter has come early to Calgary.
However, I know I’ll be treated to a beer from Big Rock and a delicious bratwurst (which I shall top with sauerkraut and mustard) after running. I had debated upping my registration to the 10k, and while I know I could finish it, I might not have a lot of fun running 10k after not running for an exceptionally long time. Beer + bratwurst = worth it!
Leslie will be joining me for the 5k in the afternoon, and then we’ll be participating in Glow Barre at Barre Body Studio in the evening. Yes, this is my life, zero plans for weeks on end followed by all the plans for a weekend.Run, bratwurst, beer. See you at @Spruce_Meadows on Oct 22! #runSM #runchat #runyyc Click To Tweet
