Quick hello

Postby Cardiffcat » Sun Jan 12, 2014 11:27 pm

Figured I would pop my head in and say hello. I have been a 'lurker' of RM for quite a few years and think it's about time that I introduced myself.

So hello, I'm Catherine, living in Winnipeg, I've been running on and off for 7 years. I do enjoy running the 1/2 marathon distance.

My goals for 2014 is to complete my first full marathon in celebration of my 30th birthday and my 10 year anniversary of living in Canada. (Originally from Wales UK)

I think we've met. :? You live (or used to live) on or near Pembina Highway and have a dog (or two). If you're who I'm thinking about, we met at a Manitoba Marathon friendship run.

Habs, there might be more than one Catherine in Winnipeg with a Welsh accent. :)
Just kidding, you probably have met, Habs know everyone. ;)
