Re: Jamix's 2013 debut race

Really nice race. Looking at your avatar you seem to have a similar build to myself. Its hard to draft behind distance runners, when you have broad shoulder lol ... but partial drafting still helps lol. Sounds like we are in the same speed range too. Aiming for 37:xx this summer. Good report. Keep u...

Boston Strong

My road to the Boston Marathon I was undertrained. I did not run smart. No one to blame except me for the pitiful "race" I was running. But I was resolved going into it that I would run PB pace for as long as I could, hang on to re-qualifying if possible, and if nothing else cross that lin...

Dean's First Varsity XCountry Race ... at 44 years old :)

So, after trying to get into medical school for a couple of years, to no avail, I am doing year 3 of Nutrition at St. F.X. in Antigonish, NS. I am hoping to upgrade sufficiently to gain acceptance in the next year or two. So I decided to try out for the running team. St. F.X is ranked in the top ten...

Deano's Downtown Dash 5K - Corner Brook, NL - 19/7/2012

Left St. John's at 11am, a seven hour drive, which would put me in 10 minutes late for registration. Made it. Dropped my kitbag in a friends car and went to watch the kids races for a bit, one of my favorite parts of race days. So much determination ... but I digress. First time at this race and did...

Short race; short report. Woke at 7am, same routine, out the door at 7:50. Met up with Arlene and Trudy. And drove to Corner Brook from St. George’s. Decide to register and see how it felt starting, pull back if anything was wrong and just finish the race without further injury. Gun… 10 guys take of...

Re: RobW Vancouver Marathon 2012

Great job Rob! Some say minute improvement for every lb loss. I think its a minute/2lbs so if you got any room downward, from experience this is key. Keep those goals in view and you will get there.

So the trip starts with the DRL bus, speeding through the parking lot, of the highway service station, where I had been waiting, as I rushed for the door with my baggage, disparately signaling, don't leave, don't leave ... it left. I planned to travel on the Thursday night ferry from Port aux Basque...

I was just wondering if anyone knows if stats on the cutoff time for the different age groups in this years race. If I understand correctly ... first week, 10 minutes or faster than standard ... week 2, 5-10 minutes better than standard ... and week 3, 0-5 minutes faster than standard if spots still...
