The Calgary Marathon and associated races were originally scheduled for Sunday May 31, 2020. Then postponed to September 27, 2020. The virtual races are taking place between those two dates. I chose it as my August 5K walk.

Results are not final until September 27. Not too worried about losing my grip on last place.

Update. Oh, well. One person behind me was 02:01:53. The rest were 4, 7+, and 23 hours, making me wonder if those were entry errors.

Gardens are not designed for power walking. The map on the website listed a two-mile jogging trail. The idea was to do one lap and then stop halfway through the second. Good plan, except the trail was not marked IRL. I gave it my best guess for the first lap and then gave up and wandered around for the last mile. The only time I made any speed was when I got lost & ended up on the access road.

Ready to walk. Shawl for rain. Bib number. Once again, wearing it while walking public by myself. Fittingly, my current barn shoes are flowered.

One wonders about the events that led to these rules.
