Toronto Marathon

Congratulations to those runners who successfully completed the Toronto Marathon yesterday! The winner was Daniel Njenga, of Kenya, finished in 2:29 – not too much of a surprise as Kenyans have been dominating long distance running for some time now.

Roughly 12,000 people from more than 50 countries participated in the events – a 5-kilometre race, half-marathon, marathon and relay – stretching from Mel Lastman Square to the waterfront and downtown.

Some 2,400 signed up for the full distance, according to race officials. The events raised more than $1 million for various charities.

Personally, long distance running has never been my strong suit but at, there are a few runners to contact if you are looking for a running partner.  Maybe they’ll be able to help you train for your very own marathon or maybe just get out and enjoy the fresh air.
