Re: Monday of the eclipse!

I had a quick glance at the sun and confirmed that it looked just like it does on other days. It was a bright, glowing orb in the sky that is really uncomfortable to look at, LOL. Then I came home, had dinner and hit the road for 8K shortly before the sun was going down. Humidex was still in the low...

Re: Why are rich people drawn to endurance sports?

I would actually dispute that running is expensive, at least compared to other sports. What are the basic requirements? A pair of shoes, a t-shirt, some shorts? Say $150 to $200? What's golf cost? You have clubs, shoes, clothes, balls, green fees, etc. Tennis? Shoes, racquet, balls, etc. Hockey? Equ...

SUNday . . .

And lots of it here! 10K for me bright and early. Not a cloud in the sky so I had to get out there before it started to heat up. My inner vampire doesn't do well in these conditions :)

Re: Why are rich people drawn to endurance sports?

As a side note, with the accumulation of damage through inflicting the amount of pain I did on myself, I got a lot of very nice medals, memories of great accomplishments and achievements and more recently a visit for the ghost of endurance events of the future. My mother in law is 83. She had been ...

Re: Why are rich people drawn to endurance sports?

It seems like the article is speaking about endurance sport participants who are very serious into training and pushing the limits of what they can accomplish. What percentage of runners fit this category? I'd hazard a guess that it's quite small within the overall population of runners. Just becaus...

Finally Friday . . .

First day of some holidays for me, and I hit the road for 13K this morning before it got too hot. Still a bit steamy with the humidity, especially near the end as things were warming up, but nowhere near as bad as last night, LOL.

Re: Muggy Monday

Really humid here too, up over 90% when I went out around 7:30 or so. Not sure what the temperature was, but the humidex would've been over 30 for sure. At least the sun was going down so it wasn't as bad as it could've been.

Nice and easy 8K done.

Re: Made it out of bed SATURDAY

I managed 8K earlier this evening on the trails. I was out fishing all morning and figured I should at least try and get a run in afterwards. I think I'm going to sleep well tonight!
