Thanks for all of your thanks! I wish I had more time to meet all of you who here there. I managed to drop a ball in teh final stretch inside Copps.

ATB - long joggle, short race report

Hope everyone had a great Around the Bay! Looking forward to reading all the race reports. Here's my short race report: Joggled the 30K in 1:54-something. Ran a personal-best distance of 25K while juggling without a drop (with four drops total - one at 3K, one at 28K and two right near the finish). ...

I did the same thing last week (but without the dog – my dog is hairless and won't walk outside in the winter). My shoulder is still hurting. Check it out: http://thejoggler.blogspot.com/2007/03/joggler-complete-klutz.html

My soleus muscles on both sides are torqued out beyond belief from scrambling around trying to do too many joggling tricks, but I'm still going to do a nice easy joggle home from work. My sister said the host on CBC Radio 2 mentioned yesterday that he had seen a "joggler" running through Toronto. I ...

Very tempting, but my vacation time's been eaten up already.

My wife's from Bedford and is planning on a trip to N.S. (without me) around that time. I'll tell her not to run over anyone in an orange shirt.

just back from 4 miles to loosen up my tired legs! I've got some sore spots but overall it wasn't as rough as I expected it to be. Now for a yummy stretch... That's the first time I've heard of a "yummy stretch". Is that where you eat chocolate croissants while stretching? http://thejoggler.blogspo...

I picked the perfect day for a day off. Tonight, after my second job finishes at 9 pm, I'll be doing some wine tasting intervals (3-4 x South African Pinotage).

My daughter Annika. She was 20 months old at the time and was an angel, except when she decided to throw her apple juice and hat out the side of the Baby Jogger. Good thing I didn't wait for my second daughter, Lauryn, because she's a squirmer. No way she would have lasted 2 hours and 49 minutes. Ch...

This might sound weird for someone who runs while juggling and is the world's fastest stroller-pushing marathoner, but I hate carrying things with me when I race. I never carry water, Gatorade or gels; I don't like the extra weight. I usually don't even wear a watch. http://thejoggler.blogspot.com M...

The rules according to both Guinness World Records and the International Sport Juggling Federation (ISJF - and I swear I'm not making this up) state that you must juggle in a right-left-right-left cascade pattern every step you run forward. This means I can't juggle two (or even all three) in one ha...

Hey, you guys clearly did not read my blog posting about the new ban I have instituted on balls jokes! I would never grab anyone else's balls and do everything in my power not to get separated from my own balls. Wasn't this thread supposed to be abut ATB race strategy? Where did we go astray? Michal

I forgot about the new finish. That ramp's going to be a beeotch to joggle through. I'd better do some more blindfolded juggling practice.

I guess I should add a few more points to my list: 14. When praying to finish the race alive and/or brushing aside the Grim Reaper, try to maintain an even pace. 15. Personally, I never carry my own water/Gatorade. At fluid stations, take both water and Gatorade, since the Gatorade is often mixed at...

ATB Strategy

Here's my strategy for ATB that has worked very well in the past: 1. Start very relaxed at an easy pace. 2. Find a little pack of runners who are going a little slower than your goal pace and latch on. 3. Stay with the slower group through 10K or so, then begin a very slight acceleration into goal p...
