Valley Harvest Marathon 2009

(Small novel ahead: summary at the end.) The original plan had been "The Nova Scotia Marathon" in Barrington, but recovery from the bike accident was slower than anticipated, and that marathon came and went without me. I did manage to get some running in before officially starting a traini...

ananas, I found the 2.1 at Cleve's Source for Sports. They are likely available at SportChek now too, but not sure. The 2.1 has a lot more ankle support, and caused me some pretty serious chafing for less than 500m of running. Try them, but I wouldn't bank on keeping them. If you also like the old G...

I've been to my local running room four times in the last few weeks, spending about an hour each time. I've already tried and returned two pairs of shoes, and have one more pair to try. Really, though, I want my old pair of shoes - only without all the mileage! I checked Holabird, but for some reaso...

Wow, I can't believe people actually read the whole report! :lol:

Thanks all, I'm learning lots about proper pacing and strategy, and working toward some goals. Cabot Trail Relay really is a ton of fun; I've already signed up for Leg 4, Cape Smokey, for 2010!

One thing though-- I'm confused as to why Ian told you that you should be faster than him on the downhills-- theoretically he should be pacing such that someone who is right at the 60-minute ability comes in at 59:59 or under-- that means faster than 6:00/km on the downhills and slower on the uphil...
