Old times good times

November 3, 2010

I thought I’d give an update on my last race but since I’m pretty busy here in NYC I’m going to make this a quick one and fill in space with pictures and a link to a great article.

This past Sunday I raced a Masters XC race at Sunnybrook Park (a master is technically over 40 but they let 30 year olds race as well).  I went up to Sunnybrook with the Harbour team who wanted me to run for them to help them dethrone the Newmarket Huskies.  The plan was foiled by someone and I ran solo for Speed River.  The Harbour guys finished second, again.   I won the race in 25:23 although Jerry Kooymans won the overall age-graded result as I was second.  Unlike Senior Nationals, the Masters run up the steep hill at Sunnybrook.  And not the same hill I ran up at OFSAA many years ago, but the ‘Bob Moore’ hill.

She’s a steep one! And muddy too.

OK, here is the fascinating read of the week, it’s the confessions of Eddy Hellebuyk.  I love how he names names.  It makes you wonder what other drug cheats will come clean after years of denial.

    I remember racing their for OCAA (Ontario colleges) and thinking “they certainly didn’t use this course when I watched National XC here!”. It’s a tough course!
