One fine morning

August 9, 2012

Quiet morning here in the Athlete’s Village

That’s a picture of the Canada building.  I’m staying right behind the tower in townhouse #6 with 7 other track athletes.  Townhouse #6 is killing it by the way, check out the results so far…

Mo Ahmed: 28:13 in the 10,000 for 18th place and he’s still in University.

Cam “MF” Levins: 27:40 for 10th place in the 10,000m and has qualified for Saturday’s 5000m final with a PB (13:18).

Geoff Harris: Breaks 1:46 for the first time and qualified for the semi-finals in the 800.

Nate Brannen: Although bad luck struck Nate when he tripped up with the gangliest 1500m runner ever he easily made the semi’s and was poised to make the final.  Heartbreaking actually. But 3:39 after hitting the track and getting stabbed by a French dude’s spikes is pretty badass.

Alex Genest: Hung with the lead pack in the steeple semi’s right until the the end and narrowly missed the final. Seasonal Best (8:22).

Derek Drouin: BRONZE medal in the High Jump!

Eric and I will have to dig deep on Sunday morning to keep the momentum of townhouse #6 rolling.

Three more runs, three more sleeps…

    Good luck dude. Hope you didn’t get the bug Levins got(he said he got it from someone in his group which I assume is one the bunch above).

    Noise Generators: This is a common tinnitus treatment that works by covering the ringing.
    In a single recent noted scenario a gentleman by the name
    of Chad Smarty went along to a prominent medicine man
    in that nation and had been healed of his ears ringing, which had turn out to be very severe into his
    elderly age. Underlying causes of tinnitus are often unidentifiable
    and it is rare to find a single identifiable cause.
