Re: Snowing Sundae!!!!

Ah yes, sundae Sunday. I'm going for a long one, up and down Mont Royal, the hillier the better, last really long run before Leg 5 of the Cabot Trail!!

Heck, it will probably be snowing in Baddeck so this is perfect training weather. High of 6 today, with rain and snow... :D

Re: RayMan's Boston Report

You put so much heart and so much enthusiasm into this race, and race report, I'm sure the good vibes will stay with you forever. Boston marathon supporters are pros! Even the kids are stars. They make each runner feel like a hero. I can still recall who I ran with, the musicians, the faces, and the...

Re: George's Boston Marathon

George - Sounds like you had an awesome Boston experience, though a tough race. You are a poster boy, twice over!!! :dance:

Marathons are, notoriously, hard on the muscles, so maybe 10K and 1/2marathons are a good solution!

You've run Boston!! Congratulations!!!

Re: Parade Friday

Today there is a parade in Montreal with the olympic athletes. No run for me but I will walk from Gare Centrale to the Pepsi Forum, (about 1.4 miles), then walk the parade route (1.7K) and back to the station. Figure that counts for something. They invited torchbearers in the area to take part in t...

Re: Lisa's spring race thread

A very solid effort in miserable conditions. And you're right about the wind picking up near the end. I too felt colder and less motivated. I think you just like it hotter, Lisa. And when you're having fun, you run better. I'm sure there are lots of great races coming up ahead soon! Summer is a comi...

Hermes @ Scotiabank Half marathon

This was my fifth half marathon, and my second fastest! Kinda surprising. In 2007, I ran a slightly different course Scotiabank half and had a time 5 minutes slower! That was my last half marathon. April 2007. And, that was the spring after my Boston qualifying 2006 Philly marathon, and I had been b...

Way to go, Sister! :dance: Sounds like you had a comfortable and fun run - icky conditions considered. Well done on the PB! Good luck on NCM, that's a slightly tougher one and your hill training will come in handy. Wish I'd stuck around to hang with you guys. Are you doing Mont St-Bruno this year?

Nice but slow 19K run yesterday. My longest run since Boxing Day! I'm feeling like I"m heading for a slow Montreal 1/2 marathon, but heck, I like to run! That's good enough for my goals. :)
