Re: Thanksgiving Monday!

Just thought I'd toot my own horn a little bit. I finally ran under 20 minutes (19:55) in a 5K today at the Oktoberfest 5K in Kitchener-Waterloo. It was so intense, and over so very fast, but I loved it! Then I went to Guelph and ran the mile with my ten year old son and 100 m with my five year old ...

Re: EndurRun

Tim I'm strongly leaning towards Haliburton though I know it's a tough course. Maybe 50 at Sulphur in prep.... still undecided though but definitely want to tackle it in 2015 while I'm 50, for all kinds of reasons :) See you back at Sulphur? (Oh and love your signature highlighting your year of PB'...

Awesome...maybe I'll join you in 2016 for the Ultimate... Will definitely see you on the trails I'm sure :) Will you be doing the Ultimate in 2015, Robin? I think it is at least 50/50 I register before the price increase tonight. No I think I'll wait at least until 2016. I'm wanting to do my first ...

We live just up the hill near Lincoln Heights, so it's not hard to get there! :-)

ENDURrun Stage 1: Half Marathon

Set a new PB under 1:40, which is about 2 minutes faster than my time for this race last year. I felt really good, albeit a bit strained in my left hamstring. Tomorrow is a short 15 km time trial. :-)

Re: EndurRun

Great run today! It was nice to meet Dave today, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the week.

It looks like a bigger potluck barbecue is being organized for Friday, pretty close to our house, so it might be better to meet up there.

By the way, we live in Waterloo (less than 2 km from Laurier if you're staying there), and we have a big backyard and a charcoal barbecue. So please feel free to drop by, hang around, whatever. I can cook some burgers, steaks, or smoke some ribs if there's interest. I'll be looking for an excuse to ...

Looks like Stage 7 will be 10% Marathon Maniac participants so consider wearing the ugly yellow Sunday and we'll get a cheesy picture for their newsletter...unless that sounds creepy.

Re: Amster-dam good Saturrday

50 miles of beautiful trail running at Sulphur Springs today. Finish time was 10:12:xx, and I have to say I'm very happy about it! Pretty sure I'm going to lose a toenail, and I have a big blister on my right foot. I may put together a race report later, but I'm thinking about heading to bed early t...

Re: Sulphur Springs 2014

Yeah, I'm hoping to learn a lot from the experience. I'm not counting the backpack out of the running yet, especially if the temperature climbs up towards 30 degrees. If it's too much of a pain, I can switch to something lighter.

Not trying to sell myself short on anything. More trying to avoid carrying more than I need. There's a balance somewhere in the middle.

Re: Sulphur Springs 2014

I can't find my usual handheld since I didn't need it all winter. I've got a smaller 10oz one that I can use though. Although it might need to be refilled, a smaller handheld might be nicer to carry anyway.

Re: Sulphur Springs 2014

Thanks for the replies. I'm not trying to be a hero. Really, I haven't done this run before, so I was just looking for some advice from those who have. I've been training with a backpack, but my shoulders would love to carry a bit less weight.

Re: Sulphur Springs 2014

Now that it's less than three weeks away, I am starting to get a bit nervous. Do you guys take water with you on the course? The guide book says "all runners are advised to carry fluid and food", but I don't understand why I should water around for 50 miles if the longest distance between ...

Re: Sulphur Springs 2014

I am interested in Sulphur Springs, but I'm a bit stuck on how to get there. A 6 am start isn't very great for taking family, and it's a long enough run that I don't know if I would be able to drive myself home afterwards. What do you guys do?

It was an awesome day, and I shouldn't have second-guessed my wardrobe choice. I doubled up my shirts, when a single layer would have s...
