N-of-8 marathon

Jenny and I will be spending Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in Victoria, BC – to run the Royal Victoria Marathon on Sunday October 12.

It’s appropriate as I’m working on my new book N-of-8 that this will be my 8th marathon.

Runner’s World magazine says the Royal Victoria Marathon is one of the top 10 destination marathons in North America with about 10,000 runners taking part in the marathon, half-marathon, 8K road race, and kids fun run.

I’m looking forward to the scenic features along the route: BC legislative buildings, Royal London Wax Museum, Ogden Point, Olympic Mountain Range, statue of Terry Fox at Mile ‘O’, Beacon Hill Park, Victoria Golf Course, and Oak Bay Village.
