Keeping busy

I've been feeling restless and I suppose a little bored with my routine - or lack thereof.

So I made a couple decisions today: The first is that I'm going to sign up for the CIBC Run for the Cure on September 30th. My friend A ran the Half Marathon in Ottawa this past weekend and has been goading me to sign up for a race sooner rather than later ever since I told him I was working towards a 10K race next year. This run is good for a few reasons:

1. It's only 5K, so it is definitely do-able,
2. There's a 5K running clinic that starts July 31st which I plan on joining in preparation for the run since training with my friend wL isn't working out so well given his busy summer schedule of recreational sports. As I lack the motivation to run regularly on my own, joining a clinic means I'll have at least 1 day a week set aside for running, as well as 2 practice days a week if I decide to go, and,
3. I'll be fundraising for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, which means it's payback time for all my colleagues who come to work to fundraise for their kids' school/hockey/soccer/etc.!

I also decided that I'm not going to wait until I've moved downtown to take Flamenco lessons. I checked my town's community summer programs calender and there's a beginner's class running 6 weeks starting June 20th and I've signed up for it. No more waiting!
