Re: Do you run in the rain?

I don't like running in the rain when it's cold and dark like we have for much of the winter in Vancouver. So I will opt for the treadmill indoors at the gym on those days. Warm rain in the summer is nice for running.

I never wear a rain jacket while running.

Re: Run in recovery from alcohol or drug abuse?

I thought I remember seeing a study about this before. Certainly there have been lots of articles over the years, including about some running groups for recovering addicts in big US cities like New York, Boston and Chicago. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2016/02/04/boston-bulldogs-running-club-drug-add...

Re: Montreal marathon cancelled...

I was surprised that they cancelled five days before the race (doesn't weather change sometimes?) but it sounds like they got pressure from the city to cancel when they tried to increase medical staff, etc.

At least they have a decent cancellation/transfer policy for the would-be marathoners.

If I don't do the heal lock I often get blisters because my heels slip up and down.

Re: Shoe Lace Tying... Whaaaat

That's the "heel lock" or "lace lock" tying.
I thought everyone did that on their running shoes. :)

Re: Monday of the eclipse!

The eclipse was very cool- I watched indirectly using my pinhole projector. Very cool to see the image, even though it was in a box. Also - I was mesmerized by the patterns in in the shadows. I got some great pics - posted a bunch on FB. 8) A good friend of mine also got some great pics with his SLR...

Re: Why are rich people drawn to endurance sports?

I don't think it is about the pursuit of pain. I think it is time and money availability; plus I didn't work with my body all day. Of course it is. It provides an artificial and additional sense of meaning and purpose on top of the objectivity of a race result. Would you possibly be able to admit t...

Re: Four things the fitness industry can stop arguing over

James Fell is so sensible-- so much truth in what he says here! I have gotten back on the calorie-tracking train, because for me it helps me be mindful of my food choices. But I know there are HUGE amounts of error in the calories given for different foods. I know my tracking isn't perfect, but it's...

Long weekend Sunday

With Habs away, we have missed the daily thread a few times! We miss you, Habs.

Today I did 75 minutes of cardio at the gym: 30 min on elliptical then 45 spin bike. I have finished week 3 of my non-running recovery period.

What's up for everyone else on this long weekend?

Re: Why are rich people drawn to endurance sports?

Some interesting ideas in the article, but the statistics are very non-scientific. ...nearly 75 percent of runners earn more than $50,000, and about 85 percent work in white-collar, service, or educational settings. A 2013 report published by USA Cycling shows much the same: More than 60 percent of ...

I am on a Ragnar Relay team doing the Northwest Passage relay in northern Washington state (July 14-15). One of our runners has had to bail with less than two weeks to go-- I'm putting it out there if anyone is interested or knows anyone. We start in Blaine, WA (right across the border), and the rac...
