Miles from nowhere, I guess I’ll take my time

January 25, 2012

I was finally able to watch this video in its entirety on my BB here in Kenya.  It’s little documentary on the Gryphons 2011 championship XC season with a little Speed River stuff as well, well done.

Speaking of the Gryphons, while I was on my long run Sunday I saw a kid, of about 10 years old, wearing a Guelph Gryphons Track and Field shirt.  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I stopped and said something like “no way dude, you’re wearing a Guelph shirt, that’s where I went to school!”  He obviously didn’t understand what I just said and looked a little scared and backed away from me.  I then said “shati mzuri” which means “nice shirt”  in Swahili.  He then was comfortable enough to ask me for my watch.  I wish I had something on me to give him but I wasn’t about to give up my GPS watch right then.

Training has been going well, I ran a lot of kilometers last week.  I had a nice little tempo yesterday and a group fartlek lined up tomorrow morning.  I’m going to bring down the mileage a bit and hit the workouts a little harder in the next couple of weeks.

Big things are brewing up in Guelph with plans to build a kick-ass 8 lane track.  Check out www.guelphtrackproject.ca to find out more details and how you can help out.

    Hi Reid,
    You write very well and your blog is fun to read. I hope you enjoy your time here. I am an amateur runner so slow I have never run a Km below 4mins. My HalfM PB is 1:42 but I still love running and I am glad I discovered your blog. All the best in your Olympic Preparations!
