Yup! I made it! It was not pretty (I dread the finish line photo!), but I got it done. AND, set the bar low enough that I'll be sure to PB next time. :lol:

I hope your daughter is enjoying McGill as much as I did!

Gee, sounds like you had a lot of fun, Jane, and that's what it's all about! I think it's wonderful how you and your daughter run together - that's pretty special. Looking forward to seeing you again at the Wolfe.

Way to go Jane! A 20 minute negative split- wow! Sure you didn't pee in the second half but I bet you were moving pretty fast, too. I'm glad you had a good race. Congratulations!

Great report Jane! Thanks for taking the time to put in words all that your eyes took in during the race. Funeral Home? Crematorium? It would appear I not only missed the split mats, but I also missed ALL of Hamilton.

Congratulations on a great run! I look forward to meeting you at Wolfe.
