Re: Sporting Life 10 KM

That being said, two very similar 10ks and Goodlife down Yonge Street in the spring seems like overkill. Not sure which 10k should go, but one of them should. Perhaps the one that raises the least money for charity?? Have not run Sporting Life, but it seems like a classic mass charity fun run. Pehr...

Re: Chilly Monday

Cycled this morning to help my legs with the double workout yesterday. We will see how I feel after work if there will be a round two or not.

Re: Sporting Life 10 KM

I ran into the issues with people stopped at the finish line as well as the ropes. The end was complete chaos by the time I got there. I did my best to get out of there as quickly as possible and begin the run/walk home. Almost a PB for me .13s off...very frustrating.

Re: Sporting Life 10 KM

I am in! And I agree with some of the comments here. I look forward to the samples and have ended up purchasing a few of the items that I have been given samples of. I would rather pay an extra $1 on my race fee and get a re usable bag if it is for environmental reasons. It just isn't the same not g...

Re: So What You're a Slow Runner!

Thanks S. Running is teaching me a lot about myself. I am working really hard on accepting me, as I am in this moment, and also accepting my goals and the path that leads me to success. I am far too competitive sometimes and when I don't finish in the time that I want to I used to be really hard on ...

Re: So What You're a Slow Runner!

Last to me is those who didn't start or try. I try and remind myself that most times when I am finishing would have been a time in years past that I would still be in bed.

Re: Marathon In Miles or Kilometers ??

A marathon is hard no matter what.
Its a matter of preferance and what mind tricks you play with yourself.
I'd much prefer to see miles, thats just me. Except for the last stretch then I want to know when the last k is. Strange I know..

Re: Detroit Marathon

I too have run before with water and had no problems. I am also prepared to give them my entire belt or camelbak whatever I decide to wear if they want it. All they asked was that my bib number be visible at both crossings. Make sure if you are wearing headphones you can still hear what is going on ...
