Two are connected by pins, which is fine. There are two other points where plastic adhesive is the conector. The wear endu...

Re: Around the Bay 2014

Ordering cheap shirts from China / Bangladesh / Saipan and then having them not arrive is not "circumstances beyond your control" I'm not ticked whatsoever at the Bay Race. I don't want an Ontario charity race to incur costs to expedite supplies because of an organized labour disruption i...

Re: Around the Bay Training Schedule

Re: Sports Drinks - useless or worse? (TV alert: Marketplace

Marketplace isn't a show about how to best train for a marathon, it's a show about holding businesses to account for the claims they are making. The show did it's job - it showed that sports drink advertising overstates the benefits and tries to sell the drinks to people who don't really need them....

Just saw this on Twitter - good stuff!

I live just east of Bradford - if there are days we are both driving to and from day of the race, we could consider a carpool.

But will see you there regardless. Good luck with the training.
