It’s Cold On MARs

It’s been cold on MARs.  Really really cold.  A group of intrepid runners headed out in -38C yesterday morning and bagged 30K.  Roger asked us to “please hold me” several times after the run.  In addition his bag of clothing that he ran in weighed close to 600lbs after the run prompting Troy Cox to ask “WTF?”.  We had a hard time convincing Roger to put his clothes back on after the run and we also learned that his post long run preferred rehydration is “give me beer”.  Catherine Smith was quoted as calling these runners “morons”.


It’s been months since Canadian Cross Country Championships but it’s still bringing us good news.  We recently learned that our Women’s 50-59 team was actually first and not second.  Nancy Edson receives her award!  Congrats!


Workouts continue this week on MARs.  Tuesday is a timed fartlek, Thursday is tempo intervals and Sunday is long run.  Remember, we now offer a Thursday 5 pm workout as well.  See TeamSnap calendar for details.

MARs is traveling to The Ontario Masters Indoor Track and Field Championships.  Try an indoor race.  They are fun…and warm.  Race is Feb 28 with early morning departure.  Details can be found here. You can register here. Make sure to pick Muskoka Algonquin Runners as your club.

MARs will be running a Cross Country Running evening camp for teenagers 13 and over and adults.  The camp will run from 5-8pm from August 22-26 and will cost $120.  The fee will include coaching, an evening meal each day during the classroom session and a MARs water bottle.  Registration will happen through the Town of Huntsville and will be advertised in the spring/summer Active Living Guide.  Stay tuned.  Registration will be limited to 30 registrants.

See you on the roads…..
