TORONTO SCOTIABANK WATERFRONT MARATHON/HALF MARATHON.

That's where I'm headed this weekend. Jan and I will be leaving on a jet plane later this afternoon. The race is Sunday. Looks like the good weather we are enjoying here in Michigan right now will mostly follow us, with a low on race day of 52 and a high of 71. That means probably mid 60s finish time, similar to last weekend.

Its so hard to plan what to wear when you are going to be away from home. I tend to always bring too much, but I'd rather have a choice than have to scramble and buy something I probably don't need otherwise.

I'll be meeting up with Lily on the Road at some point tonight or tomorrow. It should be a great time! There are several others, so it will be a fun blogger meet up. Not bringing my laptop. I'll be acting as "valet" for Jan and hauling her stuff as well as mine, so that's one less thing I will have to drag around. I hate being cutoff like that though!

We'll be staying at the Delta Chelsea Inn, which is fairly close to the race start/finish. Internet here is not free either, running about $10.95 a day, so I'll be skipping the internet access.
Wish me luck, and I'll be back on Monday with details!

Delta Chelsea has a waterslide if you are bringing the kidlets. It's also right next to the Eaton Centre -- Mighty good shopping to be had. :)

Hope you have a fabulous race. Had I known I'd might have made it one of my destinations...
