Not in Knightsbridge anymore

April 7, 2014

A little shake-up on the blogroll… Watson now blogs on Canadian Running Magazine (there is a link to the mag). I also added two blogs which I frequently read. Ryan Vail details his, impressive, training. He’s gearing up for London too. In the past I hesitated to put Mike Woods’ blog up because it’s not a running blog. However, it’s one of my favourite blogs and I enjoy delving into the cycling world. Oh ya, I also reinstated teammate Chris Winter after a blogging hiatus.

Now that I’ve taken down my volume I’m feeling better everyday. By ‘better’ I mean those little aches and tightness are disappearing and I feel good in the first couple minutes of my runs, as opposed to taking 10 minutes to feel comfortable.

I’ll get my stuff organized today, packed tomorrow and take-off eh on Wednesday.

Sportsnet One is airing the marathon on TV starting at 8:30am on Sunday. Avoid Twitter Sunday morning if you’re going to go that route. Of course there will be live feeds too and is usually a good place to start. The Men start at 10am London time (5am EST), 45 minutes after the women.

Here is the updated (April 2) start list for the elite men:

The way I see it, it’s very possible that there will be 5 to 7 of us running in a second (or third) pack.

    There’s a nice big pocket there between the 2:08:17 and the 2:10:23 pb’s that really needs to be filled Reid. Hope the weather condition and pace group gods are smiling on you come race day.

    This is the one reid. you need no advice, so, from careful following of your blog, my only humble offering is look good on the start line. see hartman vs coolsaet exhibit in your nyc blog below. the hartman look to be avoided. And, come to think of it, if anyone offers you a VIA train ticket to the start line, avoid that too. Good luck. It’s time that record fell.

    Good luck, Reid. The O’Connor family is pulling for you. This is the one.
