A bunch of slightly wacky EX-CoolRunners based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. English/Francais.... no problem!
Quick as lightning or slow as molasses.... we're all here....even the odd tri nut...
Beer, Cake & Dimsum..... or food of any description: our second passion.
Long runs on the mountain....
"There are no strangers, only friends we don't recognise..."
So sign up people!

and just in case you need a link back to Active (it ain't CR)

A new year and a nice new site...... let's do it

As you said, quick easy set-up and it's actually even nicer and easier using than CR! banana.gif And the smilies are fantastic!

I say we should start a revolution and get all the CR folks over here ... I'm gonna post about it in Multisport and see if we can't abandon ship too ... I tried updating my profile at least 10 times and have to log in at least twice to get to the Montreal thread which totally sucks and takes up way too much space.

Hey Grommit, you and Special K coming to my B-day Jan 19? And how about the others?


*I especially love that I can keep my name here*

grommit 12-21-2007 06:12 PM

icon_santa.gif...... and you can curse and swear to your heart's content, Active's Christian Zealot Right... would blank out the word ****..... and that pisses me right off.....uhoh2.gif

..... it occurred to me that the way we all found the CR site via google or another search engine ...... so I tried a search for montreal running and sure enough CR came up again on the first page.... but no Kick. So if I put Montreal runners running quebec running, Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running,Montreal runners running quebec running ..... a bunch of times maybe this site will show up on the first page too...

edited to add: nope that doesn't work.... anybody any ideas?

I think I'll go for a run and get me some of that yummy slushroll_eyes.gif

grommit 12-21-2007 07:47 PM

should be OK, though

Hey guys...

Made the switch too.. with everyone leaving biggrin.gif.

Does any one of you know of a good training log that I could either log to online or buy? Since I am not going to use the active website, I want someplace to put the log.

Thanks ! Any icon_cyclops.gif

Df7 12-21-2007 10:39 PM

Here, there, everywhere...I'm here ? really here, I dunno any more. confused.gif

Crazy, crazy day, no running but shopping, wrapping, cleaning - must count for something, com'on....okay, what does count is core work and drills. Thanks for the company TB and bonus found the store you suggested for the films.

Mild and slushy out there ? Anyone getting their shoes wet ? d'fly

grommit 12-21-2007 11:52 PM

hang in there for a while there is one being built here .... it's in the test stage... I'm sure it'll be great (it's a mac thing)

well I only got sprayed with ****-flavour stum slush once on tonights runsad2.gif
went round the block 6,35 miles... slow n slippy.... but nice... oh so nice

then shoveled for 45 mins ..... was gonna ski tomorrow but my 14 year old has a sore throat... and he's being a totally obnoxious wanker... so I'll just let him veg out with the wii....

doesn't this board feel so much better? man I was getting fed up fuckin about with the Active crap

I'm gonna pretend to work on Monday..... but for all intensive purposes I'm done 'til the 7th..... woofuckinghoo!

I love the self censorship in here.... feel free to complain about my potty mouth... I wont listen thoughbadgrin.gif

welcome home.....


Xena 12-22-2007 09:16 AM

hummmm ....where and when do you guys run ??? smile.gif

I lost my running partner this Fall...I have lurked before when you guys were on CR...but was too shy (LMAO....I know hard to believe) to post..but now now YOU have entered MY domaine biggrin.gif

By the way...salut tout le monde smile.gif

grommit 12-22-2007 09:47 AM

Good Morning MP,
sorry to hear of your loss.... we are a bit spread out around town, some on the south shore, a couple in Laval, a few lucky ones within running distance of the mountain.... the mountain is probably where we hook up most often but with the winter conditions (and a few injuries) it doesn't happen much these days.
As for myself, I can run from my back door to the summit in about 45 minutes, it's a killer workout that goes up Wilderton, pass by the CEPSUM, through the woods by the cemetary and then on the trails to the top.... I'll be doing the trail part of the run in the snow with my puppy later this morning....
so if you need some company,you're not too far away and you don't mind a little snow gomez & I would be happy to have you along.....


grommit 12-22-2007 03:17 PM

...... started at the Cem. gates and had to plough through the first 200 yards of arse-deep snow... felt mighty sillyroll_eyes.gif then trudged up to the top, one loop, went down the stairs from the lookout, back down to the angel and then ran back up to the car..... I'm guessing about 8-9 miles.

Nice conditions, not too cold & no wind.....a dozen or so runners loads of walkers, xc-skiers, snow-shoers and at least halfa dozen very intrepid mountain bikers.

going by the "view counter" on the front page there's been over a hundred folk take a peek... we've all tuned into lurkers? maybe we're all too busy preparing our figgy puddings.... wrapping & stuffing.....

Anybody care for a group run tomorrow at about 8? maybe meet at the angel and saunter to the top? the forecast is calling for 2 degrees & light rain.... yummybanana.gif

have a good one


......this is almost turning into a blogtoothy12.gif

Xena 12-22-2007 04:03 PM

Thanks for the welcome..I just got in from a 23 miler (actually 36km) along the Lakeshore. Spring like conditions..but the roads here are all still snow covered so it was running for several hours in 2 inches of slush LOL

My Kayanos are looking very brownisn/grey ...not very princessy biggrin.gif

Great to see that you guys have moved here. Seems to me a lot better than Active website. Big thanks to Grommit for finding this site. Big thanks as well to Roly who told me about putting my training log at RunningAhead. My log is back and I'm happy.

Hi everyone. It took a while but I finally found you all. Whew. Did a difficult 16K today through New Glasgow. I thought it would never end! How do those Ultra's do it? I am sore all over, not the least of which, all of the injured areas from last summer......dang! That means back to the pool. .....even more boring than a long run. I think I'll take up least you get to sit on you a** while working out.

Df7 12-22-2007 08:29 PM

Hello everyone - more Christmas stuff today, lots of walking but no running. Will run in the morning around the neighbourhood.

Roly - caution, Mercury - sorry to hear the aches and pains are acting up..was thinking about you earlier today, hoped you were feeling better.

Gag - hope you keep up your blog, I enjoy your writing.

Have a pleasant evening - fly

Xena 12-22-2007 10:12 PM

grommit 12-22-2007 10:51 PM

23 miles of slush down lakeshore...... argh! training for something in particular or just plain masochistic ? shouldn't you be wrapping gifts or something productive.....roll_eyes.gif

Xena 12-22-2007 11:14 PM

masochistic biggrin.gif and yes I should...but I HATE wrapping... roll_eyes.gif

drgenie 12-22-2007 11:23 PM

Just wanted to say hiiiiii Grommit! We are old buds from the original Kick days (I was Genie back then). I think we were on a VRAA team once, waaaay back in the early days. wave.gif
