:lol: Too funny Andy, I totally missed that. :lol:

Yeah, that would have been one hell of a negative split for sure.

Stampie's 2015 Edition of the First Half

This is the 4th year in a row that I have participated in this event. The First Half is near & dear to me. This race was my first half I ever ran back in 2012 (2:01:50) and it currently holds my PB at this distance in 2013 (1:54:16). Not to mention this is a well-organized event and is fun to pa...

Re: Sunglasses on top of prescription glasses?

I have been wearing glasses since I was 7 or so and I have astigmatism as well; though only in one eye. I've also just recently started to wear progressive lenses. I wear contacts for sports and I've been doing that for just over 10yrs now. Previously I shied away from contacts because I was told To...

Re: Nausea and Vomiting in the Marathon

I've vomited in a race and that was because of over exertion. I was only 4 or so km into a 10 km race. Could yours be because of an electrolyte imbalance and exertion? I have not vomited, but have come close. I did a 5K time trail last year and nearly tossed my cookies at the end of that run. That ...

Well done, that was an outstanding result with a HUGE pb. Congrats!

Considering how well your training went and how well you finished at Melissa's, it was no surprise that your ROCK'd it in YVR!

I'm equally impressed at your consistent pacing and race management, outstanding!
