Re: Driving Friday

5 min walking - 30min running (continuous) - 5min walking. Overall AVG pace was 6 min/km. No issues. :pray: I'm thinking along the same lines as Sylvie and Nick. Now is the time to run with you, otherwise I'm toast :wink: Seriously, I'm THRILLED to hear you are on the mend. Keep taking it easy, and...

Re: Ottawa Marathon 2013?

I don't run in the big city enough to comment, but perhaps this might help: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/69156802
From what I can tell, the 2013 proposed map appears to follow the same course.

Re: Hello Thursday!

What a great day! Started out with a 6.69K run, then went to physio... where I got my marching orders. I am supposed to embrace "slow, steady and in-tune with the body" during my runs. Guess we'll see how the implementation goes over the coming months 8)

Re: Mtl Oasis RnR Registration Opens

Wow, I just read the FB wall. Lots of positive comments on the full/half front, but I had no idea the 10K turned into a nightmare. Now I understand the negative comments from passengers on the Metro. Did RnR post the wrong start time in the guides, or did someone just pull the starting gun too early?

Re: Mtl Oasis RnR Registration Opens

I noticed something went "off" about 9K. My watch is setup to vibrate for each km, and past 9, it never alerted in tamdem with the signage. Granted I always run the far outside of a course, so this does cause for minor data errors, but never by this much. All told, my Garmin thinks the hal...

Re: Longer Battery Life

Great price for the 310xt and I loved mine (MrsStrider now owns it), but the battery doesn't go much beyond the 12hr. I upgraded to the 910xt and am loving it. It's only downfall is the current pace is still a little wonky, but I never care too much for that as I usually am more focused on Time / D...

Anyone ever eaten at Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney? Or Yachtsman Staekhouse at the Yachtsman Resort? Paradiso 37 is a lively spot - ideal if you're into frozen drinks (lots of different tequila options available).
