In the white room

February 9, 2009

I went running again today and it finally felt like I was a runner again.  It usually take me about 5-6 minutes to warm-up on any given run and I simply wasn’t running long enough to get over that hump.  Today I got a couple minutes where I felt comfortable and if I had to I could of picked up the pace. 

There was lots of running action this weekend.  The Gryphons had some great results at Notre Dame (especially in the 3km, Allan Brett 8:13, Derek Snider 8:18, Lindsay Carson 9:10) and it looked like I dodged a bullet as I still have the University record in the 3000m (8:09).  It should be taken down this season, if not in the next couple of years for sure, as Boorsma and Brett still have more years of eligibility.  Hilary raced a 1500m in Germany (4:17), a nice opener for her.  Kevin Sullivan collected another sub 4 mile at Boston Indoor Games.  I wonder how many sub 4s he’s run?

In local news:

The other day I read that Westdale Village is the oldest planned community in North America, but upon further research it’s actually ‘one of the oldest planned communities in Canada.’

McMaster pool’s “shallow end lengths and deep end leisure” will be cancelled on Wednesday at the 11:30-1:30 time slot.  Hello elliptical.

The next batch of Walker’s Chocolates cookies comes in on Thursday.

The warm weather is melting the pile, notice all the grass.



One day it will look like this, haha


I got the ceiling high enough…

    Is there a white room anymore? Maybe a sign that it’s time for the new awakening of “Reid the Runner” -like a catipillar breaking free from its cacoon??? Nice to hear you are back running!
