Re: Thick Thursday

It was a nice evening here in Vancouver/Burnaby. The Vancouver Marathon Society had a garage sale and 6k run event that I and a couple of other folks from my run crew attended. I ran to the event from work for a 5.5k run and then we ran from East Vancouver down to Science World and back for an inte...

Congrats, great result/placement. 10K's are hard, even harder when the course is long :wink:

Re: Bear Aware Thursday

It was my first bear sighting of the year this morning! MIchelle and I were just heading around the field behind our local rec centre to get onto the trail when I spotted something big, black, and furry ambling along the train tracks that run parallel to the trail. "Bear!" and we held up ...

Re: Racing Sunday

Mississauga Marathon for me today! Weather was better than forecast (thank goodness), but wind still there at spots. Didn't make my goal but still a good result. Was uncomfortable from about 18K on so glad to see the finish line.

Re: Running Mules..

This just seems to continue to be a thing in almost every race :roll: Getting a BQ is nothing to brag about anymore, and the sooner they just change the damn race into a lottery or better yet just another race, the better. I'll rather continue doing London, Chicago, Toronto, NYC, LA than wanting to...

Re: Podium Saturday

3/5/10km races today. Our local Mad Hatters Run club had 8 AG spots, plus RM's very own barebuns1 got 3rd AG. I stuck to my strategy, push but not all out which gave me 3rd AG. Overall a great day. Nicely done, congrats!! Pick your posion 25K trail run for me today! Nice to be back on the trails.

Re: When you run Boston with Ridiculous Enthusiasm..*now with text!

Like Lisa said, your story sounds like my first run in Boston as well....heat wave and 4:39:xx. My slowest marathon ever. It's not an easy course and coming off the winter weather it's hard to run with any heat, let alone a lot of heat!! It's all about the experience though. Once you realize that it...

My normal shoes are size 9. My road shoes are 10.5, my trail shoes are 10. So yes, I subscribe to this. Interesting, don't you find your toes touching to the shoe when going downhill?

Very sad. Spoke to him a couple of times and he was always so humble and gracious. It was amazing to watch him run too. Incredible. He was still so fast, even while he was battling cancer. Super impressive.

Re: Julie Miller now running ultras

Very easy to cheat in ultras. No mats, just check in at aid station (sometimes, not always). Easy to cut the course. I think Julie is running with a GPS watch and a person the whole time so that her finish is not called into question. Oh and as small as the fields are, I've been in races and I'm com...
