Re: pizza in Toronto

I never did find pizza that I was all that keen on in Toronto. In Halifax; however, there is an outstanding place called Salvatore's that does the trick. Mind you, it still isn't particularly thick, which is apparently what I wanted when I started this funny thread so many moons ago.

X-country skiing is an amazing sport to get into. I hope you enjoy it! There are a few important differences to keep in mind when deciding between classic and skate techniques. The weather and conditions are a big factor. If the areas you ski in are likely to experience a lot of freeze/thaw patterns...

Not to mention the fact that in the absence of CHO (or calories from any source) your body isn't capable of absorbing the electrolytes in the drink. So you are really getting nothing from the Ultima....... except the water part of it i guess... but why pay for something you can get out of the tap? ...

It's no suprise that those who train less for a marathon will suffer more strain than those who train more. And recovery takes longer. Other studies have shown other types of heart damage after a marathon. But none have shown any lasting effect. Robert, I'd like those articles. I'll pm you with my ...

I'm also signed up for the half. I had hoped to get some serious training done after the Scotiabank Waterfront half and shave significant minutes off of the 2:08 I did there.
