I did it for the Medal – The Oasis Zoo Run

A successful Saturday morning 5K at the Oasis Zoo Run at the Toronto Zoo.

I had been pre-warned that the Zoo Run was extremely hilly, so I had been doing treadmill training with the elevation at extreme levels. Yet, I was still not prepared for that final stretch.

I came no where near a personal best, but with those hills and the high temperatures I am just happy to have finished and not embarrassed myself.

My Adidas Ultraboost shoes are at the end of their days though and I will need to get a new pair before another race. This is my second pair of Ultraboost shoes and I seem to be getting around 500/600kms per pair, which is not bad, although the price tag isn’t great.

Really, I did it for the Panda medal!
