I'm out as well.

I was actually briefly "in" for a bit of a visit to Winnipeg but I've now been scheduled for a trip to Vancouver the prior weekend, I don't want to add on any more travel.

Sorry DT - I'm out of this one. I'm going to Marathon Ontario 2 weeks after though if you feel like trekking that way :lol:
When your legs get tired, run with your heart.

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

No worries Dr. S!

I must admit, with everything going on in my life - new crazybusy job, having to find a new place to live and move, and a complete lack of running lately - I'm not sure that I've given the attention to this that it deserves. And I'm not sure how involved I will be that weekend. :( :(

I would still hope to get together with anyone coming to town. I think that a Maniac gathering would be exactly what I need.

Maniacs ROCK.

Bingerunner is doing the half and we're both on a relay team as well. I'm doing the final leg of the relay. Maybe we could plan a get together at Boston Pizza on the Saturday night for anyone that is around and available.

I am running the Half. Saturday night works well for me - it can be my welcome home party, since I should be getting home sometime on June 2nd ;)

I have a wedding Saturday. I could try and sneak over to Boston Pizza between speeches. :wink: The reception is at Holiday Inn, Airport West (old Birchwood), on Portage Ave.

Alright, I have a special RM guest coming in this weekend. Any guesses?!? RMers should feel free to drop by any time after 5pm on Saturday for a visit and a bite to eat. PM me for details.

Let me know if you plan on stopping by so I can pick up some super easy grub depending on numbers. Bring your own booze...

It will be an early night since many of us are running the following am.
