Moose Run 25k 2014
Another early start to drive the 2 hours and a bit to Eastern Passage for the annual pilgramage to the Moose Run 25km. This is not a race, times and placings are recorded but there are no prizes for winners. Many folks aiming for Boston, or another spring marathon, use it as a tune-up run, […]

    Bert Corkum 5 Mile
    It was with some trepidation that I followed through with my plan to run this race. Right up until warmup, I was swithering whether it was a good idea. Was the uncertainty physical, or mental? Probably a bit of both. This would be my first race since Epic, and only my third race this year, […]
