I ran twice in March: Chilly Half (21.1k) and ATB (30k).
Total mileage = 51.1 km

Not the wisest training plan... :roll:

I too think overall the race was well-organized and great fun (until the finish), but I have to admit, as a non-medal-receiver, I was a little disappointed with this email: The Bay Race apologizes for running out of medals. Less than 200 participants were effected. Medals have been ordered and will ...

I am glad that you managed to finish the race -- Heather and I checked the results to make sure, because you sounded doubtful when we were talking to you. Yup! I made it!

According to this article, he actually made it to (and struggled) up The Hill and then pulled out. As Jane told me when I fretted about not finishing: sometimes even the best runners have bad d...

You could go for ice cream during ATB- the best ice cream shop ever (back me up people) is Easterbrooks on Spring Garden Road at about 25k. I'll back you up on that one!!

Great report! Sounds like you had a wonderful and enjoyable race! Congrats! :clap: Hope I didn't freak you out too much with my out-of-the-blue "Hey! You're runjanerun!" (Maniacs are a bit like celebrities to me... :) ) Thanks for pausing for introductions and encouragement mid-race! Deirdre :D

Wow!! You told me to "slow down and leave something for the end" -- CLEARLY you heeded your own advice! Great job! :clap:

And thanks so much for the company. You made those first km's much more pleasant!

Deirdre :D
