Good luck today, Barbara.

I am up early to Skype with my son in Japan, then I have a pretty short (12 km) LSD to do. Then report cards! Yaa hoo!

Re: What is it about a race bib...

I like the crowd support, and the volunteers - these random strangers always give me a burst of energy and general well-being just by being there. No one cheers me along Leslie Spit (a long, quiet stretch of land on Toronto's waterfront)!

Re: Moody Tuesday

Sunny but cold here in T.O., going to do an Easy Run after work, with strength and core workout after. I need to make sure my Easy Run doesn't become a Tempo like it did yesterday.

Re: Scarey Sunday

10 kms on the schedule for me today - hopefully I will crouch over more efficiently while passing through the tunnel, and not peel a strip of skin off the top of my skull this week. It made last week's Sunday run distinctly less pleasant.

Happy Halloween, maniacs!

I have 35-minute Tempo run to do this morning, then some shopping, errands and **shudder** report cards.

Anyway, today is a rest day for me, but will be exhausting anyway because of Halloween activities at school. Should be fun!

An Easy Run on the schedule for tonight...followed by shopping for a Halloween costume for tomorrow. Maybe I should just be a Blue Man again...but all that makeup feels so gross.

Re: Do you manage your weight?

I only weigh myself when I want to confirm that I haven't lost too much weight, but really since my Army days (when I used to lift weights to bulk up) my weight hasn't changed much. I am fairly thin but muscular, so my concerns about diet and exercise are all about keeping cholesterol down and heart...

Re: Today is Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

I have a field trip today, to Queen's Park (Provincial Legislature). If I am not too drained afterwards, I am supposed to do hill training today! If the field trip wears me out (as 21 grade 5 kids are capable of doing) I will do an Easy Run tonight and hills tomorrow!

Wish me luck!

Re: Boston Registration HELP!

As I read this thread I am just amazed at how many different responses there are to this news. It just shows me how we all approach running (and goals) so differently.

Hmm good point; if money is tight you might want to wait to book that flight, until you get the official e-mail and postcard.
