Re: ORW Weather Forecast . . .

My guess from knowing the course is that people made a mistake at the turn off unrelated to heat. That being said - I think we forget about the crowd we deal with on here who are pretty well prepared for races, understand the logistics etc. My DH had a former colleague who had wanted to run the ful...

Re: ORW Weather Forecast . . .

Great job organizing the pace bunnies again this year Mark. Indeed! I wondered how they were going to handle the change in conditions! I was in that 1:45ish group and I didn't find any of the merges terrible - though it was tricky to pace because we were passing a lot of people over that bridge! I ...

Sunny Sunday!

Is everyone still out racing in Ottawa and Calgary? Ottawa half marathon for me - four weeks post-marathon, I wasnt sure how this would go, as I've had to take it pretty easy during my recovery period, combined with the really high temps forecast for today. Decided it was not a PB day and ran with m...

Re: ORW Weather Forecast . . .

We handed out about 300 freezies last night in 15 minutes or so and another 200 today in a similar time period. I wish I could have had one for everyone! This morning was not nearly as bad as I was expecting but still quite warm - it actually varied a lot along the course, depending on the cloud cov...

Re: ORW Weather Forecast . . .

I'm happy the race is still ago, but hope all will be well. The 30 minute delay tonight for the 10k might not make a big temperature difference, but they will give an extra half hour after the 5K which could make a big difference for medical staff and volunteers who might be dealing with heat issues...

Re: Ottawa finish line logistics

City Hall side, not the canal side. The immediate area after you come out of the finish line chute is just for runners, and of course, EVERYONE is standing by the opening of the gates to find their person. I like to meet people either in a spot at City Hall or by the Starbucks at the corner of Elgin...

This happens every year! Very glad I opted for Toronto marathon this year - if not because of actual temps, but because it saves me the anxiety!

That's me out for 2016 but watch out 2017 - I WILL be there.

Re: Damp Saturday

Ended up being a lovely morning this morning! First longer run post marathon - 15km and change with my BRF. It's been over a month since we've run together since she did Boston and then I did Toronto. So nice to catch up!

Goodlife Toronto Marathon - BQ or Bust

The backstory... Since I started running (for the sake of running!) almost 10 years ago, the Boston Marathon has held that allure for me - something I hoped to maybe, someday, do - if I got fast enough, or old enough. I ran my first marathon in 2007 in 4:15, and have slowly worked that time down, ru...

Re: Marathon Weekend in Toronto/Mississauga

Just wanted to rant a little about Toronto. - They ran out of water/Gatorade at the aid stations in the last 10km. I've read reports this has happened before - how does it continue to happen!? - Seriously undermanned aid stations near the end - had to stop and wait for the one or two volunteers sta...
