Tomorrow I particpate once again in the Army Run, a 1/2 marathon held here in Ottawa.

I'll run with 22,000 others. Well, not run this year. I injured myself about two months ago, a very deep muscle tear that will take a few more months to heal.

So tomorrow I get up at some ungodly hour, pull on all my polypro gear, and walk/run for approximately 3.5 hours.

I post a picture of the dog tags I earn after I cross the finish line.

BTW, you should see all the military crap parked in my 'back yard' (the run takes place two blocks from my apt) -- tanks, mine sweepers, artillery, APCs, and lots of grunts carrying weapons and bag pipes.

I fear the bag pipes most of all . . .
