Random Thoughts on MARS?

Join us on MARS this week.  We have in store a Fartlek Run (Tuesday morning 6:30 am), a 90 minute Progression Run (Thursday noon) and a Fast Finish Progression Run (Saturday 6:30 am).  In addition, the Sunday Morning Running Group remains active (see their Facebook page) and Mini Meet #2 at York University is this Sunday as well.

Don’t forget to renew/get your MARS Memberships at The Sportlab.  Download registration forms at Membership tab.  Gear orders also through Sportlab.  The next RUn for The Pub is Thursday January 23 at 4:30 pm (run) and 5:30 pm (pub).  See you there.

At Mini Meet#1, W60 Karla Del Grande and M70 Tony Powell both broke the CAN records in the 50m   Karla ran 7.51 –  breaking the old mark of 7.73 set by Carol Lafayette-Boyd SK in 2003.  Tony ran 7.50 – breaking Mike Morris’ 7.57 mark from 2012.  The University of Toronto Track Club set a ONT record in the M60 4X200m (Peter Zowkewych, Duncan Greenshields, Doug Smith, John Helliker).  Congratulations to these Masters Runners.  Why not give it a try? Future meet dates are Jan 19, Feb2, March 9 and March 15-16.  Details here.

If you are still looking for reasons to get up off the couch and train for a race, have you considered these:

Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett did it, but back then they called it “jogging”.

You can now buy a running outfit with built in mp3 that is powered by your running.  MARS does not recommend this particular suit.

On MARS, it may be better to get a more hardy outfit with larger speakers, maybe something like this:

High tech mp3 player with subwoofer.  Good also for core.
