Cody has now come through Hockley Valley and down to Cataract at the forks of the credit river as of last night. I met up with the great support crew (operating out of a lime green VW camper van - classic) and offered to run with him - they are very receptive to new faces joining in for companionshi...

Thanks DB - very interesting race. Great to know you can pick off a single event or two - as the full week is a bit intimidating. Thanks.

Re: kelso

For hills you can't beat Hockley Valley near Orangeville


Hockley Valley and surrounding Bruce Trails are my regular turf... I'd be happy to suggest some loops depending on what you are looking for.

Re: Coyotes kill Toronto singer in Cape Breton

THanks Samantha -

This helped to put a more human/personal context rather than a focus on the coyotes.

There are still many questions as to exactly what happened - have the hikers who found her and called 911 ever told their story?

Coyotes kill Toronto singer in Cape Breton

What a tragic story. Running trails - alone - is one of my greatest joys in life. Coyote sightings are common, and I have never given them much attention. My prayers and condolences go out to the family, and a reminder to all to be careful out there... http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nova-scotia/story/2009...

still debating longs vs short... it may depend on the wind... if there is no wind, I'll probably opt for shorts and maybe a long T

I think flippers may work better than hip wadders though...
