Re: framboisine freezes at the Goofy Challenge

Great report, Framboisine...congratulations! Wish I had known you were there...would have introduced myself as another long-time maniac. Despite the weather, it was fun, wasn't it?

Cheers, Christine

Re: HCmD's 2010 Goofy Challenge - Part 2

Great report, Andy! Sorry I didn't get to meet you. Your report gives me hope that if I try again, I could do better. But you're right, it was a really fun experience and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I think you should plan for next year...

Fabulous performance and way to go! :dance:

Re: Looking For Input On Marathons

I've run Vancouver vs Victoria and Calgary vs Red Deer...I ran both the old Calgary route and the new one.

I'd pick Vancouver over Victoria.

I'd pick the old Calgary route over Red Deer, but definitely Red Deer over the new Calgary route...very disappointed in the change in Calgary.

I'm officially starting my "training" for the Goofy Challenge on January 10/10, but I'm not sure of what training program to use...I considered a 50-miler program but I don't know. There are a few maniacs who have done the Goofy challenge...what program did you train with? Maybe a 50-miler...

Sometimes, it really is just about the running

My life for the past 2 years has been nothing short of chaotic (working full-time at a job that had me travelling all the time, full-time student in master degree program, 2 young children, running a language school on weekends, etc. etc.). My performance in the races I've done has been a continuous...

As it turns out, I won't be able to make it to F'ton this year...I'm so disappointed... :cry:

Andy, I think you'll really like the course...the trails are beautiful in F'ton and one of my absolute favourite places to run.

Have a good race, to all those running it.

So sorry to hear that Mouse...when it rains, it pours...wish I had a good news story to share with you today.

4 x 1-mile repeats last night, so no running for me today. Slept in, so no cross training either. Ah well.
