Re: Sunny Saturday . . .

beautiful here! 22 km at 5:20 pace - a shorter and zippier long run than usual. My training buddy is out of town so we scheduled in a cut back week since we were both running solo. Refueling with chocolate bunnies

Re: Tuesday

8 km run commute in with 3 x 400 m then 1 x mile; repeat twice. Hit some traffic lights towards the end so not ideal.

7.5 km run commute home.

Re: 63 Day of the leap year day - Thursday Thread

7 km run commute to work - chilly! 2 km plus a bus ride to get home.

No paparazzi shots during today's run though - unlike yesterday: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ot ... -1.3471751

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

Glad to see everyone checking in! I'm marathon training for the first time as a working mother - I've done two post kids, but both times were while on mat leave, so I had lots of flexibility. It is requiring a lot of juggling during the week to fit it all in, but I love my three hour run break on Sa...

Re: Wet Wednesday

I had probably my yuckiest run to commute today - 4.4 km of very icy paths, streets and sidewalks with rain coming down and coating my jacket and visor with ice! But made it to work upright and smiling-ish. Much nicer run home, and then boot camp tonight.

5 km to work and 4.4 km home. Footing was less than awesome in the morning, but i picked it up on the way home because it was late, and because it was friday!

two non-running days in a row coming up because i'm headed to gatineau park - for my first time on skis in 3 years! yikes!

I'm away this weekend, so I got in 16 km this morning as a very extended run commute. Will need to run home, so that will give me 20 for the day.

Re: Treadmill vs Outdoors

I love the option of having the treadmill available. Due to family circumstances the treadmill has been a lifesaver many times. Due to inclement weather the treadmill has been a lifesaver many times.

Re: How do you want to sign up for a race?

I looked through your site - since you're going to be selling tickets for other things, buying them through Eventbrite with your other tickets probably makes the most sense.

Re: Terrific Tuesday

I had intervals on the schedule today and I needed to fit them in during my morning run commute. But it was so cold that my garmin kept shutting down! So, did them all by feel and rough judges of pace and distance, with the distance markers along the canal skateway as reference points when I could. ...
