Re: Getting Better With Age - Ed Whitlock

He will continue to be an inspiration to me, for his perseverance through injury, running ability and character. Way to go Ed!!

Re: Diana Nyad finishes her epic Cuba to Florida swim

I don't think Diana Nyad swam from Cuba to Florida because it had sharks and box jellyfish. She swam it because of the challenge to her. The sharks and jellyfish were a byproduct that I'm sure she would have loved to not have had to deal with. RE: protective gear: I wear a helmet when I bike to pro...

Re: Soggy Saturday

I waited until the rain had stopped then did 10 K on the rail trail in Terra Cotta with Tuzo. No Garmin and 2/3's of it I was off leash. Longest run in 3 months! Maybe there's hope yet.

Re: FRIDAY for letting be

I'm officially on vacation now. Packing sucks so it hasn't seemed too great yet, but tomorrow we're off for 9 days and night in Killarney Provincial Park. Backpacking. Packs are 47 pounds each before water, should make for a nice round 50 pounds all in. Tuzo's is 10 pounds, he carries his own dried ...

Re: FAST FRIDAY

Spent 2 hours this afternoon hiking the hilly trails of Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, wearing a 45 pound pack. Training for upcoming Killarney backpacking escapades. How come it can be that 45 pounds feels twice as hard as 30 pounds?

Re: Simply Saturday

I ran my first race of the year this morning, 12.8 K of trails at Rattlesnake Point put on by 5 Peaks. It was a fine day for running and was both fun and challenging. I finished healthy and happy (to be done). Still the numbers were cruel: although it should not be surprising that running less milea...

Re: 5Peaks Rattlesnake - June 8

I am! I am doing the Enduro course. I can't really say that I'm "racing" since it's my first race of the year, so I'll be taking it easy/conservative to avoid getting hurt.
