As Skott and I get closer and closer to the halfway mark for the Camino de Santiago, we thought we would interrupt our Camino posts with a short & exciting announcement of a new challenge we’ll be taking on in October.
For the last few years, Skott and I have participated in the half marathon in Regina’s Queen City Marathon. For me this is always a fabulous start to the fall. I love the camaraderie amongst all the runners, volunteers and spectators; I enjoy the physical challenge; and I always look forward to the greasy, guilt-free brunch afterwards.
Many of our wonderful family and friends will be taking part in this once again this year & we wish them the very best!
We figured the next best thing to running alongside everyone in Regina was to find a new fall half marathon that we could take part in. We had already planned to be making our way to Morocco in the fall so the timing worked out for us to sign up for the Grand Marathon International de Casablanca.
We were lucky enough to find a group from the UK that are planning to go down for this race so we registered through them and hopefully we can even hook up with them for their pre-race Pasta Party (oh yes, we specifically requested an invite).
Now we hope that we can stay healthy and pamper our feet throughout the rest of the Camino so that we’ll be ready to race on October 23rd!
In the meantime, if you have any ideas about a cool city or neighbourhood where we should rent an apartment in Morocco for September-October, we’d love to hear about it!
