Re: Why Marathoners (Especially Men) Are "Irrational" Runner

I don't think it is just focused training goals. Certain round numbers are going to be seen as milestones. Many will be motivated to reach those milestones, rather than to push their limits to do the absolute best they can do on that day. Obviously, a lot of people pushed themselves to reach that 4-...

Wow. Good for him. Especially coming back after back-sliding for 18 months. Love the shot with Walk Off The Earth.

Those of you who cook roasts...

After 200 years of trying, someone has found a good way to season the inside of large pieces of meat.

Re: Acetominaphin

Yesterday, I filled a script for hydrocodone / acetaminophen. Today, they gave me another script. The nurse today said, ignore what the other bottle says, take one or two every 4 hours. I said, that bottle says one every six hours (and has the 4 mg max dose warning). THEN, the nurse looked into the...

This. When I lived in Kingston I used to run on a couple of courses during the fall/winter/early spring and found that some don't mind at all, but others do not want you out there no matter the season. Asking removes any doubt.

Exactly. It all depends on how they market the affiliation with the charity.

Re: Are colour runs are a faux-charity scam ??

This does bring up an interesting point, though: we're completely used to seeing running events where a charitable affiliation represents a tiny fraction of the overall event budget. Does this happen very often outside the running community or is an outsider justified in being uncomfortable with th...

Re: Summary of my weekend- Pace Bunnies and a Kenyan

Could we get the Kenyan a maniac home for Victoria? A great idea, though the race is putting him in a hotel while he's there. Makes you think though- I wonder if there are other athletes in his shoes who would like to do home stays for races rather than hotels- it's a neat experience for the famili...

Re: TELUS MISSION POSSIBLE HALF/5K - Ottawa

If you're fast, it could be worth entering a Telus event. I timed one event 3 years in a row, a 5K, that was associated with a fundraiser walk that drew several hundred people. The race itself never had more than 45 people in it. Telus were a sponsor and first prize the first year - for both males &...

Re: Bike stolen at the "The Canadian" in Ottawa

I expect the RD to configure the transition area to make it difficult to steal my stuff. I don't expect it necessarily to be impregnable, just difficult. For example, a fence high enough to make it difficult to lift a bike over. Some form of check ID to remove the bike from transition. I agree. I h...

Re:

Many transition zones aren't really set up for effective bike locking. That would take a bit different setup if participants were expected to lock their bikes. It's clearly not expected. The problem is that the sport started, and standards were set, at a time when people weren't riding bikes that r...

Re: Bike stolen at the "The Canadian" in Ottawa

Make everyone ride a stock bike that nobody would want to steal. That's what I have thought for ages. Athletes want to push full responsibility for the protection of their hyper-expensive bicycles onto race organizations despite the fact they themselves will not make use of the single most effectiv...

Re: Early morning runs

I usually just have some water or milk before heading out, but if it's going to be a longer run I may eat a banana as well. Sometimes even half a banana is enough. I know some people who will have a very small bowl of oatmeal.
