  • Who or what is Ashley Horner and why does this person have four threads to one about Lionel Sanders on ST? CrossFit Cowgirl
  • FOMO in overdrive now that it's here. Super sorry to be missing out (except for the swim). Take lots of pictures & videos!! Take care of your livers!
  • I haven't done the Penticton 2016 course although I've done lots of riding in that area. I've never gone up Secrest which I think is the toughest climb on that course? I find both old & new Whistler courses to be harder than anything I've ridde…
  • We got ‘er done. Hottest day of the year and (rumour has it, I’m too lazy to check), the most gain on any bike course on the current IM roster. Happy with my swim, happy with my bike, the run was a shit show in an inferno. I walked every hill and ev…
  • For an hour and a half, I wouldn’t fuel during. I’m currently training for an 11.8 km swim (because I’m an idiot, especially considering how slowly I swim) where I will need to fuel so I’ve been practicing on my longer swims. Fueling every 500m vibe…
  • Sounds like you're having more fun.
  • Perhaps it was a stab at the “because it’s there” badge?
  • This junky powdered sugar donut may look like nothing special... But I grabbed this in a Gran Fondo yesterday... at the star on the elevation profile below: And then this happened: So much for sports nutrition and clean eating. Rethinking m…
  • 14 Sports Bras with front zippers? Thanks Runner's World! (although half the models looks like they don't even need one) LOL... some of the reviews... tales of spontaneously unzipping bras... I'm thinking these were designed by men
  • Can I jump on @M_Ware 's entrepreunerial ask for life-saving technology with some that are less noble? 1. A sports bra with t-fal like properties that you can put on post-swim, or take off when sweaty, without getting stuck or having to ask strange…
  • Same. I lost my red one during my last bike fit.
  • LOL... thanks! I celebrated the slowing of my metabolism and gradual loss of skin elasticity and cognitive function with a 4800m swim (locker #69, you’re welcome), 48 km ride and a 48 minute run. Now I believe there are 48 glasses of wine waiting fo…

  • My current binge listening podcast is Ear Hustle. Have you heard of it? It’s recorded at San Quentin and is about life in prison. It’s clear that the US prison system (or justice system) isn’t focused on rehabilitation. Worth a listen. On the topic…
  • Getting off easy here. The most recent sentencing outrage: in the fall of 2016, a driver crossed the centre line and plowed into a group of cyclists (including the son of a friend of mine) on the shoulder, on the other side of the road. That's right…
  • The power of a single well placed typo.
  • Also, thankful we had a Pooperintendent thread (never thought I’d say that) so this didn’t get posted in the donut thread.
  • When I first watched this, I concluded she was out for a run, had to go, and was refused the washroom key... before eventually demonstrating how badly she had to go. Couldn’t figure out how she concluded just leaving and shitting her pants was a wo…
  • Assign her to the #sworry trials? A group crash aftermath picture would be eggsellent! Ha! It would take her all weekend. Maybe a zombie apocalypse. She's pretty quick with zombies. Truthfully, I prefer when she uses her powers for good, not evil.…
  • Tim Hortons recovery meal - Check!!!! @Tad_Machrowicz I see your recovery meal and raise you this recovery feast. Ran a point to point half marathon this morning and when the hub was driving me back to my car near the start, we just happened t…
  • @kjrunnin I’m confused. Was it a requirement of the class that the pics be posted on SM to see if they convinced people that you were injured, or was that your choice? No, that was my daughter’s request and I obliged. I hoped that stating I was fine…
  • So yesterday this happened... While most wouldn’t take photos immediately after and post to social media, I probably would so I guess it should not have come as any surprise that my phone blew up with concern from friends and family when I did. I…
  • Here are a few more random picks: Christian Grey= Jan Lisbeth Salandar= Heather Jackson Peeves the Poltergeist= @TZaferes While I wouldn't kick Jan out of bed for eating crackers, I'm going to suggest Terenzo as a better fit for playing in the…
  • Without TriRoost I wouldn’t know about Pit Vipers (thanks @_MurMan and @mbrekk44) and if not not for PVs affiliation with Shinesty, there would be no way I would have gotten an email about these.…
  • Also I think there’s a typo in “Big Rock”
  • Do we have an official beer?
  • Currently enjoying Armchair Expert. Start with the Jimmy Kimmel episode. That one's my favourite so far.
  • I did the same as @AaronWebstey and @scotty - the light house was the nicer run (minus the putrid rotting snake I encountered on the side of the road). Stuff a few bucks in your shorts and end one of your runs at Eduardo's Beach Shack and treat yo…
  • Gary is a much loved local runner & race director. Total class act. I hope he’ll try again next year.
  • 9 o’clock bedtime on a Friday night!
