For the one of you that have been looking at the Jay race, we will now have a Quebec edition in Val-Morin<br><br>
Hope to see you there next June 21st for the Saint Jean Batiste festivities.<br><br>
Lots of water, Mud and beer.<br><br><br>

Pittsfield is on the 14th Dan's is a whole week later on the 21st, enough time to recover.. maybe be able to walk again. <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br>
I may have convinced two people to run the 10K and Britney will do the Kid's 2 K.<br><br>
BTW Dan and Gro you have to sign up at this site some interesting adventure racers, Check out Wolf's profile (AKA Joe from Pittsfield he completed the Eco Challenge Fuji)<br><br><a href="http://www.peak.com/home.php" target="_blank">http://www.peak.com/home.php</a>

I have a problem.<br><br>
I'm interested in trying out the half. But I have a lot on my plate in May and June.<br><br>
I've registered for the Ottawa marathon and my wife is due to give birth to our second child on June 9. My in-laws will be living with us for the first couple of weeks to help out, so I will be able to run a little in early June.<br><br>
I really want to try out a trail run like the Val-Morin one, but is it too selfish to do it this year?

drag everybody with you..... regardless of age! sell it as a "family outing" "an activity for the whole family" etc etc...... seriously you wanna try and get your people interested..... you may need some crew one day! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

I like the sound of that. Laying down the groundwork for roadtrip duties somewhere down the line...<br><br>
Even if I can convince everyone this will be fun, I'm probably biting off more than I can chew running-wise.<br><br>
But what the hell... I'll see if I can sell this baby. I'll let you know if I get some good vibes from the "crew".

I got a green light for Val-Morin. Man, I've got a wife with a heart of gold!<br><br>
Thanks for the advice, Gro. I'm going to repackage loads of stuff as family activities now!<br><br>
Anyone else thinking of running in Val-Morin?

Congrats Dan!<br><br>
You put on a great race. I've run it the past 2 years. I'm glad you sold it out so now I have an excuse for taking a year off though <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

if it's any consolation...... It's becoming more & more unlikely that I'll get to go back to the VT100 this year...... bought/sold our home..... and the next 6 months are gonna be very busy..... wouldn't be fair on the Mrs... etc etc etc<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Not really that well trained at the moment anyway..... longest recent run less than 3 hours[won't get me too far<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">]<br><br>
.... but I'm sure i can squeeze in Val morin......<br><br>
just a thought... does angie know how many pairs of shoes, top, frocks etc she could've bought with all them entry $$$$'s ?<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>

Hopefully I can get my act together for maybe a half in the fall. <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br><br>
NO Angie does not know how much I've wasted on those entry fees, but she won't mind since it came out of my beer fund.<img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"><br><br>
Df the hip is a little better now that I've stopped running but the pain in the butt and lower back has returned. Doh!!! Some how it's all related and i need to find out which muscle or mix of muscles that are the problem, from the tightness in the loer back near the spine I am thinking the psoas Major is the biggest contributer to my problems, sitting all day shortens it. Bla..Bla.. bla... I can talk, bitch andf complain all day but it aint going to help.

That stinks! I hope you are on the mend soon!<br><br>
I think I need a break this year. Maybe 2009 we can tackle that beast together again. I don't think I would have made it through that swamp without you last year.
