    Howdy, I did a few sprint tri's this summer, and am hoping to do an Olympic distance next season. Over the winter I'm going to concentrate on improving in the swim, maybe take some private lessons. Haven't done any adventure racing, but I do single track mountain biking. I'm hoping to do a 24-hour bike relay next summer. I'd love to share training ideas, etc. Teresa
  5. Howdy, I run outdoors all winter long -- and it really is all about the gear! Here's what I wear: Running socks over silk sock liners Running tights (cool max material, thinly lined) Long sleeve shirt with a zippered neck (also cool max/dri-fit) Fleece vest Windbreaking jacket windproof gloves Toque If it's really cold (I do live in Ottawa after all), I'll wear a balaclava instead of the toque. If you can embrace the weather, you'll find it's not so bad (I actually kind of enjoy it!) HTH Teresa

  15. Howdy Running Folk, It's been a while since I posted, but my training has been going really well. I've got a little over two months to go until the Toronto Half Marathon. Started back to hill training last week -- I had forgotten just how tough it can be! I've got a couple of other things on the race calendar before the half -- a 10K race in the Arboretum next Tuesday and a sprint triathalon on Labour Day weekend. Need to get back in the pool this week in preparation for the tri -- hard to fit it in with all the running on my schedule. Babe: Congrats on staying on track while you were on vacation -- and good luck with your upcoming races. Let us know how you do! Kanis: Take care of that IT band -- there's some good info at http://www.sportsmed.buffalo.edu/info/iliotibial.html Oh, and drinking coffee or coke before is something that a lot of athletes do, so nope, its not cheating! To all the other runners, happy trails! Teresa
