this week's shout-out is to all of my running compatriots who are tackling the iconic Around The Bay road race in hamilton, ontario this weekend! while the course has been amended this year to remove the daunting hill climb that normally appears at km 26, the haunting figure of tim the grim (reaper) should be enough to spur everyone on to the finish line!
specific ups go to my friends and training partners jason pallen of the barrie running ninjas (check out his blog here, and on twitter) and steve 'flash' elliott of black lungs toronto (on twitter). looking forward to seeing you sporting your "older than boston" race tees!
to everyone running ATB, have a fantastic experience out there!
