Re: Mississauga Marathon Sunday May 15,2011

Great attitude! It was a super day; I agree. Man, you were up early. Nothing that some Tims coffee and cookies couldn't cure though obviously. Well done! Glad you enjoyed it.

Re: Killerz fights the elements at Toronto Marathon

Wow, the race sounds like a big of a gong show! However, you sound like you did the absolute best you could given the circumstances. Sub three is RIGHT THERE!

Wow, super awesome! Congrats...very well deserved. I have ran the half of this race a couple of times and know that last 2k is a killer even in the half; can not imagine the full!!! You are amazing, and I like your attitude about trying to get into Boston. Fingers extra-crossed for you!!!!

Wow, a good showing of running/walking this weekend by the HRM's..Jes, Irongirl, Ironcoll, pts, scrummy! I ran today too! Got out to the RR today for 29.9K. Good thing I did as well because there's no way I would have been able to knock that out myself. But I ran too fast. I been going out with a g...

Sorry to hear about your loss, FP. pts, I agree you could try. 4 weeks after my c-section I tried and it was too early and I figured that out pretty quickly. So I waited four more weeks and was fine. Give the walk/run a try! Jes, Hamilton is a quieter course for sure but very very fast! I am so exci...

Yes! I read awhile back that you can not force HOOPLA, it is just made. This is one of those times, I think. What should we do? Breakfast? Lunch? Run the whole course holding hands?

Re: Asics and Mizuno

This year's version of the Wave Rider is not as light as previous versions, has more cushioning in the forefoot, and doesn't have that "close to the ground" feel. Once again, a shoe company can't leave a good shoe alone. That's the WR 14s? I heard they were changing up the WR so I bought ...
