I would like to introduce myself as this is my first post on "Kick".
I already recognise some of your names from another forum, quite some time ago.....Fred has suggested moving here with a small group, so here I am.
Like Fred, I am Canadian, though until the age of 20 I lived mostly in Africa. I am now 58, with only 3 years running experience, trying to run some decent (relative term!) times before it's too late to do so.
Look forward to getting to know you all.
if you have the time (or inclination) there is a thread with at the top with a sticky , keeping it on the top front page
--"Boomers Introduce yourself..."
which will give you a little background/intro on many of us...
Glad to see this thread on Kick (I'm also Canadian although I've lived in the states for almost 50 years). Since I turned 75 I notice that the competition in the longer races (>10K) is pretty sparse. It's nice to be 1/2/or 1/1 but I'm getting lonely at the top. There's still some fast runners in the shorter distances.
Just dropping by to say hello and maybe have a virtual slice of that pie.
Oh, and to congratulate KS on a great run. Well done sir.
Also Ribs, who has been winning AG awards right and left, in case I missed the last one, so a hearty congrats to you also.
Not feeling confident about this tenK I am running tomorrow as I haven't run since Monday. But I did go out and loosen up with just one mile on the indoor track in 8:10, then did my full flex workout, so at least I will be loose. This will be a hilly course and I am looking forward to the work, after having a lazy week. Spareribs
