I’m here in Ottawa, gettin settled in for Sunday’s race.  I made the drive up yesterday with super manager Dan and his three Kenyans.  For some reason Josephat and Karanja sat in the back with their shirts off… I wish my camera hadn’t been in the trunk.

I’m going to run the marathon with my cell phone and put updates on the speedriver twitter site.  You can follow at or (Thanks Moulton).  7am start!!

    You should get in touch with Guinness. This will surely be a world record marathon run while tweeting.

    Nice job Reid – 2:17 and top Canadian in your first marathon. Now that you have one under your belt you should be ready to smoke one on a fast course like Berlin. Rest, recover and enjoy – hope to see you out on the roads/trails again soon. take care Chris

    Hey Reid, fantastic work, way to come back. Loved the numbers you provided related to the hours of cross training. Hope this sets you up for some great track races and future marathons.
