Re: Snowdrop Ultra Report

Thanks for the report, Spirit. Like I said in your journal, 45 miles is awesome to me. It's one thing to be stiff &sore at the end of a race. It's quite another to be in pain &dysfunctional, and have to face doing it all again the next day. So yeah, I understand your decision to stop racing ...

Re: Sunglasses on top of prescription glasses?

JWolf, I didn't know 'bout contacts not being recommended for pools. Kinda kills that idea for me. :) As for prescription goggles, so far I can see well enough in the pool to get by without corrective lenses. An open water swim might be different. Then again, if I already baulk at expense of getting...

Re: Sunglasses on top of prescription glasses?

Grimskot, I wear progressives too. But I wear contacts for sports only so no requirement for reading. Similarly my prescription sunglasses are single vision. To further complicate matters, I also have astigmatism. My optometrist told me I would need some pretty funky contacts even if I went single-...

Re: Sunglasses on top of prescription glasses?

And hello! from another Manitoban :) Contacts aren't really an option for me: have progressive lenses for my prescription. Thus, I use clip-ons. Not the flip-up kind, but the ones with the slidey spring in the bridge. Not 100% coverage of the prescription lenses &no side protection, but small en...

Re: Kelowna Marathon and LOFT

Sounds like you ran a smart race. If your body holds up to walking the golf course tomorrow, then you'll have your answer. And there's nothing quite like having enough left to pick someone off right at the end. :) Congrats!

Re: Eclipse Wednesday

Didn't know it was a lunar eclipse when I was walking with V this morning. That explains why the moon looked so funky. Thanks to Spirit, now I know. Coolness! :)

Re: Knee pain

Current Wpg'r here. If you're going to Pan Am Clinic on weekend, plan to get there before it opens. They can be quite busy on weekends, and only accept patients up to a daily max. Last time I went there on a Saturday, I was turned away only 2 hours after opening. OTOH, if you do get in, they will al...

Congratulations! Weird about the tummy troubles. And yet, you still finished. Yay! Now, about never doing another 50k road race... There must be a 50K trail race somewhere out your way... :twisted:
