At the 36ish km mark I was fading and 2 girls passed me and told me to jump on their train. Thank goodness for them - I picked it up and finished strong. Hard earned PB a...

Re: Marathon Weekend in Toronto/Mississauga

Toronto Full for me! First time at this race. Exciting! What's your projected finishing time? I may ride my bike down near the finish line, but I have somewhere to be by noon. ETA: I think I'll ride my bike to Corktown Common, which is at the bottom of Bayview Avenue, so between 20-21K on the marat...

Everybody please pray to the Gods of Boston I BQ.
Perhaps fast as well.

I know it is a tall order but I really want to go, even though I hate the roads.


I'll send some BQ vibes your way if you send them my way too!

Re: Wednesday AND Thursday - two for the price of one!

Wednesday was a rest day. Thursday was a lovely but windy 6km along the river for my last pre-marathon run. Resting today, travelling tomorrow.

Re: Snowfall Warning Monday

Cool here, but no snow. Last pre-marathon run commute today. Legs are finally starting to feel a bit of pep back. Hoping the taper is working its magic!

Re: Just in Time for Boston--There are cheaters in your mids

The cheating doesn't surprise me one bit, but the fact that there's a guy digging this stuff up every night kind of does. And I kind of love it.

I actually saw a fellow runner out there with a balaclava on! 31 km for my last big run - taper now begins - three weeks to race day. My Boston-bound-buddy joined me for the middle 18km. So pumped for her, an...

Re: Endurance advice

welcome! a few strategies - gradually increase one of your runs each week. once the 5k distance seems easy to travel, you'll be able to speed up. The intervals are a good approach -try gradually increasing the duration and/or speed of the faster part. good luck!
