Re: New ATB route

Ran the new route today for our last long training run. Let me just say, it's still tough :wink: but I did miss the hill. The route just seems a little more boring now that that portion of the race has changed. Let's hope they make up for it with an awesome t-shirt :lol: Speaking of shirts ... Any ...

Re: Mississauga Marathon - Anyone ??

Anyone interested in a late afternoon pasta M&G at Boston Pizza, near the start line ? Or, the pasta buffet dinner, at the Host Hotel? Think it is only $15 or so ??? I know I'm going to be way too nervous the night before the race to eat much of anything. I'm getting nervous now just thinking a...

Thanks Jennifer :D I'm just starting to worry because I've missed so many training runs due to my mum's health situation. But I was able to do ATB despite everything so I'm hopeful! Only a few more weeks.....

Re: Around the Bay 2014

I tried to find the section you guys were in, but I ran out of time and had to get back to the group I was running with. I think we must have been on the opposite side of the arena. This was my first ATB and I had a blast, despite overheating a bit because of my long sleeves and winter running pants...

Re: Around the Bay 2014

I have a grey ATB shirt and my bib says l'm supposed to be running in the A corral. Guess that's what happens when you buy someone else's bib :lol: If only my speed would magically increase when I put on the bib!

Re: magnesium?

I had a one week relapse on the sleep front. TERRIBLE sleeps last week, all week. But it seems to be settling again. Interestingly, the relapse occurred when I reduced the Calcium that I'm taking with the Magnesium. Not sure if that is what caused it but I've upped the Calcium again. Also, In spite...

Re: magnesium?

ok, I'm a bit afraid to get my hopes up, but I had *decent* sleeps the last two nights. On Wednesday, 7 hours with a couple of wake-ups, and Thursday 6:45 with a couple of wake-ups. That's not *great*, but it's better than normal and I have felt better than normal for the past two days (mentally aw...

Re: magnesium?

After reading your post I've starting taking my magnesium supplement right before bed. My problem in recent years hasn't been getting to sleep, it's been waking up at 3 or 4 am wide awake and not being able to get back to sleep. So far the magnesium seems to be working :D I still wake up, but I can ...

Re: 86 year old woman runs NYC then passes away

I would be quite happy to go this way. My mum is 81 and battling lung and throat cancer, up until her diagnosis a year ago she was vibrant and healthy. The ravages of disease are terrible, so if I had to choose, I'd rather go quickly doing something I love.

Re: Ham roast dinner?

I don't eat ham and that's what my MIL decided to cook for Thanksgiving, so I filled up on all the side dishes. We had mashed potatoes, glazed carrots and green beans almondine. She also put a dish of pineapple slices on the table.

Re: Salt Sugar Fat

Re: The runners wave?

When I was running in Florida I very rarely received a wave or nod from other runners. As soon as I was back home in Burlington it was so nice to go out for a run and be greeted by almost every other runner. There's a very active running community here and people of all ages, which is great.
