Social media networks explained with coffee…
On Sunday, July 22, I did something I’ve wanted to do for years. I ran the Tely 10!
Now for a lot of people, hoofing it across 10 miles / 16 kilometers probably isn’t all that big a deal. Heck, when I lived in Toronto I often walked to and from work and covered around nine kilometers a day.
But the Tely is different.
It’s a run that all of St. John’s and surrounding communities are aware of and make note. There are running clinics that can prepare you for the big day. It’s a rite of passage for a lot of runners.
On race day, there are thousands of runners who are local participants; sometimes they’re your neighbours or co-workers. And you don’t have to look far to find people from outside of the province who are in town for the race.
Last year I wanted to do the Tely, but sloppy training left me with an angry knee and I wussed out.
This year I was determined, but probably didn’t train as much as I should have…
In case you didn’t know, I also have a Tumbr account – http://vmiddleton.tumblr.com/.
Because I have a wonderful little Motorola Milestone, updating this blog and my Tumblr are very painless. I’ll admit that I’m updating my blog more from a desktop/laptop because it’s faster, but the option is still there.
My Tumblr will serve more for sidebar commentary and more random in-the-moment findings. It’ll have shorter posts that will likely include more multimedia like videos and photos. There’s a nice easy option for quotes too which I’ll toss up from time-to-time when it comes up.
Anyone else using Tumblr? I only follow one person and that’s the lovely onthemetro.
