[caption id="attachment_482" align="alignleft" width="121" caption="Pound the pavement for your cause!"] [/caption] It's that time of year when spring feels like it's just around the corner, and for me, I feel a strong urge it to get back into my running. I try my best to run regularly in the winter, but it just isn't the same, so come spring I'm out the four times a week - rain or shine. In anticipation of the upcoming Green Living Show here in Toronto (it takes place at the end of April), I was browsing around their site and came across information for the Earth Run. This April, the Green Living Show will host Toronto's first ever Earth Run on Sunday April 26 at the Exhibition Place. Signing up for this race will help you kill two birds with one stone - it's the perfect opportunity for you to help raise funds for local environmental initiatives and for you to get fit just in time for summer. The run is a mellow 5 kilomotres long, so now if the perfect time for you to get outside and get training. There are also Earth Runs in Vancouver and Ottawa, as well as the United States and Spain, for those of you outside of Toronto. For more info, or to sign up for the race, visit www.earthrun.com. Have you been spending more time outdoors in anticipation of spring? How do you plan to get back in shape after the long, cold winter?
