Heart Race- A Success!

My heart race was a success! On May 5th, I participated in the Vancouver BMO Marathon, completing the 8km race in 47 minutes and 35 seconds. I came in 97th out of 1634 other women running the 8km. It was a huge event with 18,000 people registered from 65 countries! (I really wanted to run the half-marathon, but I think that would have been pushing it. My goal will be to run a half in October at the Okanagan Marathon.)

It was also a success because I raised $730 for ERH’s Cardiac Imaging Lab campaign! I got pledges from friends and family; collected bottles, and made my own donation. It’s not a huge amount, but I’m happy that I could contribute something, knowing that it’s going to a good cause.
