This from Terry...Murray , Kevin, Ann, and my self did not run, we were the welcome back party at the finish line, our small way of GIVING back to the running. Just want to let you know and the rest of the runners, you all did a FABULOUS job out there, and looked GREAT COMING HOME.CONGRATS to MARIO, he was able to beat his sons pb, way to go MARIO, you rock. Terry
This from Tom... It was an excellent day for the Hypo... sure beat -47! I hope that everyone who ran had a good race. Just finishing it makes it good, right? If it was your first Half Marathon, way to go!
This from Gill... What a gorgeous day for a run! A huge contrast to last year…not that my time was much better, but this year I’d attribute that to my spotty training & certainly not the conditions. I think the Hypo is good race to keep me moving over the winter & not one where I’m trying for any PBs. As for Scott & Mario, well what can I say, they’re fast and strong. Well done, everyone, and thanks for the company along the way, Gwen, Viv, Bev, and Lori! I would like to say ....
This was my third (and sadly my last due to moving on from Cananda) Hypothermic Half. Having just arrived from a balmy
een NO way I would have stepped out the door had it not been for all the fantastic people I have been able to run with. Whenyou know your running group and friends will be waiting either on Corydon and Wentorth, or at the Running Room, it certainly helps you get out of bed when it is way below -30 and put those running shoes on. And then of course, today was just the most beautiful morning of the winter so far, what a wonderful memory to take with me. So, many thanks to everyone with whom I have been out running with this winter, we have had many laughs, many well earned coffees and brunches and a lot of fun – you really are truly awesome people. And yeah, soon we have Spring and Summer running to look forward to! Gill
I think Gill has made an important observation. We depend on each other and care for each other like no other group. It's been an amazing 16 weeks of training together. It's been damn cold but the friendship and coffee is warm like the Mediterranean sun. Thank you all for having me along for the run. Cheers all, M...
And this just in from Sandra... Sorry I didn't reply to your request even with threats of voodoo dolls. I was nursing a bit of a muscle strain with ice and advil and then I went out to get some stuff for my Hong Kong trip. So I just checked my email and enjoyed everyones comments. I just wanted to thank you for being our leader and all the inspiration you provided on those freezing cold days that kept us coming out. I am planning on coming to the clinic on Thurs, but I am not sure if I will be running or nursing the strain.
