But let be honest I will be going back for theseWorth mentioning their Victoria sponge, carrot cake and chocolate Guinness cake looked pretty tempting too, even at 7am!Distance:10km and all the hills!Last year I did this event and I loved it as a race, this year I did it again and I stick by my initial thoughts this is a great event!MoRunning happens all around the country proudly supporting Movember and their fundraising for Men’s Health and in particular Prostate Cancer UK. Plenty of people attack this race as a serious course but there are also plenty of people in fantastic (?!) fancy dress outfits, donning impressive running just to enjoy the day.Turning up at this race I was excited, with an incredible 167 people from Run Dem Crew running I imagined spotting Dem tshirts all along the route and the noise through CheerDem was going to be insanely loud! (I wasn wrong!)Photo credit to FOOD LYCRAOne of the many things I love about this race is the simple start. It certainly helped having our race numbers all in one area big up to Glenn for sorting that.
Lots of kids dream about what it would be like to have x ray vision like superheroes in movies!! But did you know some airports have it. They have scanners which can see through your clothes in case you’re carrying weapons. But not everyone is happy about this.
And more than that I got to try their new fly knit shoes which I had seen around and all I can say I want them!! While my costochondritis came back the very next day, it was totally worth it. I did the running option which was amazing. They had a live orchestra playing the music we were working out to, how I would love to get that track.
Honestly I haven’t worn leggings in my entire life, but your tips about how to pair leggings with other clothing makes me think about finally wearing one (I’m no longer young and I have problem areas indeed, I need to look slimmer than I actually am!). A black pair of leggings will do best for a start. Thanks for the great tips!.
I was very diligent to practice taking fluids during all of my long runs and tempos. A friend was either recruited to ride next to me, bottles placed on the trunk of my car for multiple loops or I stashed fluids ahead of time out on a course.

(iStockphoto)An eastern Ontario hospital says it can longer afford to provide counselling for soldiers from a nearby military base.Hundreds of soldiers from Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, northwest of Ottawa, had been receiving free counselling for anger, stress, depression and relationship problems.However, the Pembroke Regional Hospital says the adult outpatient service has become too costly to maintain.The program’s end comes amid an emotional public debate about whether troops are getting the support they need. Frontline counsellors say many soldiers still won’t use beefed up military mental health programs for fear of tarnishing their careers.Others simply won’t admit they have a problem.Pembroke had no dedicated funds for outpatient counselling,” said Bernadette Wren, the hospital’s director of mental health services.
