This morning was a local 10k race to support our local Community Centre 55 Christmas hamper program. Due to past popularity (it always sells out) it doubled in size from 200 - 400 runners this year (and it sold out early!). It is a great race so if you are local you should put it on your list for next year! Tannenbaum10k!
This race is notorious for poor weather - snow, rain, wind, freezing temps - you name it. But this morning we were blessed with mild temps (6*c, 43*f) and light winds with rain in the forecast.

This was also a special race becuase my daughter was able to come watch her big brother, dad and mom race. I love to have the kids at the races and see how much fun it is. I didn't descover the thrill of runnign until recently and I would love for my daughter to be runnign this race with me in 5 years! Thanks Grandma and Janet for being our babysitters and photographers!
Again, this is such a special race for us - the start/finish line is 1.5k from our house and the route is my number 1 training route. The folks who put on the race are wonderful and the volunteers are amazing. It was great to contribute to the Hamper Program. I hope to make this race a tradition in our family! Kudos to the Toronto Beaches Runners Club for a fabulous event!
