Re: Volunteeer burnout (?)

The one race that I stopped volunteering at is Run for the Cure. It is huge and doesn't really treat it's volunteers very well. I find the local version very unorganized and expects the volunteers to be there way longer than necessary (a lot of sitting around and waiting for them to get organised). ...

Re: Cyclists boycotting these brands...

Note that the MEC letter did not mention the NRA once. MEC is responding on behalf of its membership and shareholders, not making a direct political statement. Its membership are the shareholders, whom they didn't directly consult. And they make direct political statements all the time. I get the i...

Re: Cyclists boycotting these brands...

I agree with La, I don't think that these brand boycotts will do much. The real power lies with the voters, to vote out the politicians who take money from the NRA. The gun lobby/manufactures control the NRA and I believe that the actual membership has very little power to influence the actions of t...

My favourite are Clif shots, usually.


I never think of MEC for gels. I love the store, but we only have one and it not close to me.

Re: Gels?

I buy my gels at my local independent running store, but The Running Room is a common store to get gels at. For gels, it all comes down to personal preference and how your stomach tolerates them. I find that some brands give me GI (stomach) upset. It is usually recommended to try one brand at a time...

Re: Do you run in the rain?

It depends. If I am training for something, yes. I put on my running jacket, hat and opt for my contacts instead of glasses. If I am running just because or need my shoes dry for the next day, I head indoors for the treadmill. That being said, there is something about running in a light rain (not a ...

Re: Where are people buying discount shoes these days?

Thanks for the tips. We also have a RR warehouse outlet in the west end, so I might check there, too. It doesn't have to be online - I don't mind driving to stores in the greater GTA - I just don't want to pay more than $130 (tax included) for shoes! I'm fine with past years' models, too.
