Still nice here in the Adirondacks! Got out for a nice trail run before father's day breakfast. Legs are a bit sore after yesterday's race, but not too bad.
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

Actually a very nice morning to run here in Calgary.

Great race in the pouring rain today in Barrie. Finished in 1:44:56 which was good enough for a 3rd page age group finish and a 14th place finish for females and 83/495 overall. This is about a 3 minute PB for me as well. Very happy with this result. Ran a 4:56/km pace for 16K then dropped to 4:57/KM at 17K then stopped checking the watch after that.

Nicely done, mas_runner! ETA: And robinandamelia, too!

10km for me at the peak of the pouring rain, since I only had one window to squeeze it in between Father's Day breakfast for DH and a kiddie birthday party this afternoon. It was alright - within about 2 minutes I was so wet I kind of forgot I was wet.

Yin Yoga this morning and then came home to make brunch. Not a nice day for a run with all that wetness coming down.

Did the Leamington Du Relay with my Dad today! what a great tradition. He'll be 77 this year, and he said he wants to do it for 3 more years, at least! :dance:

Happy Father's day to all the maniac dads!

P.s. ROW should be posting an awesome race report, so look for that! :dance:

I had a great time on the trails this morning with Strider, ngcaper and MikeM. Strider wasn't kidding when he said there were lots and lots of rocks on that route, LOL. I think we covered about 13K and wouldn't you know it, but I didn't even break any bones or spill any blood that didn't end up in a mosquito :mrgreen:

Thanks for the run guys, it was good fun!

congrats mas_runner and robinandamelia and forestgump - way to represent out there!

C and I got out for 5 km with the stroller - it was bright and sunny when we headed out and then the clouds started to roll in. We snagged the last night half hour of the day!

I raced a personal best 10 km, with a 45:32 chip time. I planned to run about a minute slower, but since my Garmin seems to be kaput today, I was running on feel instead of technology.
