Re: Sundae!!!

Just finished a nice hour core/upper body workout - starting with 10 minutes of Tai Chi. I've found some awesome native american flute/drum music that coupled with the Tai Chi seems to help me focus on the moment. :D No running yet for a while but will hop on the treadmill later for a wee walk on th...

Do the "prey" always know the area? I've seen it in some pretty dense bush country...... I actually think the people who win A) get lucky and B) are fit and C) actually try to do some "out smarting" because you really just can't "run as fast as you can" and out wit the rider/horse.

Wouldn't the camera crew following the "prey" be a giveaway as to their location? :wink: I've thought about that - but the camera crew isn't always there, sometimes you get the "prey cam". I would hope they're only around when the trail has already been picked up & man tracker is close - I coul...

True........ but from what of seen, the people who win are those who know how to travel the back country. The "prey" often don't have any specific knowledge of the area - they have a map & a compass. Mantracker always has an experienced sidekick with intimate knowledge of the terrain, trails, ro...

On one hand I hope this won't come to be the diagnosis. On the other I'm sure it would be good to know what the problem is exactly. You've got some good fight in you girl, so you'll get through this.

As a person who participated in today's race, I'm curious to know what happened. Did the woman who ran using her husbands bib keep both medals? Personal opinion - she shouldn't get either - DQ.

Struggling with injuries - working thru the emotions

I've been struggling with this for a while I'm not sure what to do. Ever since an achilles strain last spring, running has been almost impossible. I didn't worry so much about it over the summer, house reno's & work kept me otherwise occupied & I figured all it needed was a good rest. Unfort...
