Re: SuperBob runs the Hong Kong half

Ok folks, I am now taking a group order on Liniment of Turpentine. Minimum order of 1 gallon per person! :twisted: After some searching, liniment of turpentine isn't so scary. It's a distilled resin from pine trees. Absorbine Jr: menthol, wormwood oil and a secret tincture of herbs Vicks vapor rub: ...

Re: SuperBob runs the Hong Kong half

Air pollution isn't bad, imo, but I am suffering from dust allergies and I'm taking antihistamines every day. I realized that I'm spoiled by the super clean air of Victoria. I've been told that it's been getting worse since 1997 when Hong Kong was given back to China. At that time, many factories op...

SuperBob runs the Hong Kong half

TL;DR (short) version Ran strong. Heat and boredom were main issues. Finished 2:31. Had a great time! Long Version NYC wasn't far enough from home so I looked to another continent! :lol: So I'm in Hong Kong visiting the in-laws for a month. We planned this trip a week after Chinese new year so that...

SuperBob's Victoria 1/2

2:09 and satisfied with it. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been around all that much. Things kind of fell apart with some health issues getting in the way. This has been a successful year in getting back into running. I got back on track and was even accepted to the NYC marathon. Many t...

Re: 2011 Vancouver Marathon - Hoopla

I happened to notice this price increase to $130.00. I do find that expensive. I can still run the Runwild Leading Edge Marathon in St. Albert for $85.00 or the Saskatchewan Marathon in Saskatoon for I think $85.00. Yah $130 does makes me think twice. Your examples of marathon pricing are much easi...
