We are thinking of maybe road cycling in Guadeloupe at the end of March. Would anyone know where to find quiet roads for cycling and good beaches for swimming?

Do you have another warm destination to suggest at the end of March?


Happy training

Hey folks, while many of you are starting to train for Movember and may have just finished your race season but I wanted to mention the upcoming Telus Mission Possible half marathon, 5km and NEW half marathon relay (10k/11.1k legs). The races are at the beautiful Marshes Golf Club on a closed double wide paved pathway winding through the 18 hole course. Thanks to the generous support of the folks at Telus last year we raised over $10,000 for the Ottawa Mission and the running program that Chris Payne now leads for the folks at the Mission.
The Ottawa Mission is an integral part of our community, dealing with mostly male clients with many suffering from mental health issues. We all know how important being active can be to treating issues like depression, but for folks who have come upon hard times it is very difficult to focus on running when you are literally fighting for your life living on the streets or in shelters. The running program we started allows the men to gather in a welcoming environment, and provides shoes and clothing through donations and funding from this race.
This year, I am very happy to have Stockwell Day as our featured guest speaker, following some amazing folks like John Halvorson, Dylan Wykes and Jody Mitic (Vote Jody!). Stock will be flying in to participate in the race as part of his Boston Marathon training but he will be speaking at the brunch about his Boston Marathon experience as well as fitting training into a challenging life schedule.
The half marathon and relay includes a long sleeve tech running shirt, all you can eat brunch and great prizes from Mizuno, Running Room and Telus. The 5km includes a short sleeve tech running shirt and prizes, and all have access to hot showers and lockers on site (bring your own towel). You can register online at and if you register by Sunday midnight you will be guaranteed your shirt size!
We will also be accepting donations of clothing and shoes at kit pickup and on race day, anything is appreciated. The Running Room take donations throughout the year, but with winter approaching, there is a special need for colder weather clothing and of course running gear! The clients of the Mission greatly appreciate any support you can give them.
There is also a silent auction with 100% of the proceeds going to the Mission and some great age group and overall prizes, so I hope that you can come out to support the event...brunch tickets are also available online for sale if you want to come out and cheer then have brunch with everyone, and you can also make donations directly to the Mission using the site.
Have a terrific day everyone, thanks for supporting so many great and worthy events in this great community. One thing that makes our sport so special is that on November 8, everyone runs together on the same course, times showing on the same results regardless of education, ability, race, gender, age or a race everyone is treated as an equal and as part of the same great running community. On race day, you will be sharing the route with folks who have come through the Mission running program and very much reflect what is possible through support for programs like this!
Have a great day everyone, hope to see you at the race and on behalf of the Ottawa Mission thanks for supporting those in our community who are very much in need of our support!

200 miles, 36 legs, 9 runner’s, two drivers, 30 hours and 28 minutes. The 6th Bourbon Chase was an excellent adventure Thanksgiving weekend. 400 teams of between 6 and 12 runners started Friday at Jim Beam distillery, 30 miles southeast of Louisville and wound their way through quite rolling Kentucky terrain, six distilleries, bluegrass, historic communities, bourbon and horse country to finish in Lexington, the horse capital of the world, on Saturday afternoon/evening. Our contingent of four Bushtukah staff and our friends combined a strong mix of veterans from last year and enthusiastic new team members for a very fun gang!

We left Ottawa Wednesday, picked up our large white passenger van in Syracuse and after an overnight stop near Columbus arrived in Louisville Thursday afternoon. After a quick stop at Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby for photos and lunch, we stocked up on provisions for the next two days and met our smaller contingent from Toronto with the other van. The welcome reception along the Ohio River on Thursday evening on the Urban Bourbon Trail was highlighted by bourbon cocktails and a bourbon barrel beer and energetic disco party in line with this year’s theme “Bourbon Chase Fever”.

We had submitted the required ‘locked in’ estimated finish time mid August of 30:30 which determined our start time which was 12:30pm Friday. 15 teams started each 15 minutes at Jim Beam with the first teams starting just after 7am and the final elite team planning on running 3:45 per km starting at 7pm. Teams are allowed to deviate plus or minus 90 minutes from projected finish time without penalty. This allows organizers to establish open and close times for the 35 exchange points and spread out congestion at exchange points. Our 9 runner rotation was divided into our two clearly Canadian decorated vans. After we all saw the team start, one set of runners covered their legs, the other van enjoyed down time, fueled up and visited the various distilleries. With cloudy conditions and off and on rain, dark came earlier than normal. By the first exchange point at which vans switched off near Maker’s Mark it was time for reflective vests, headlamps and rear flashing tail lights to be mandatory. Overnight legs were either on narrow hilly, quiet winding legs or broad shoulders of secondary highways. The event coincides with the full moon but it was not in evidence this year. Daybreak on Saturday brought us closer to horse country and rolling green fields and cool but dryer conditions.

Running four separate legs totaling between 18 and 26 miles separated by seven hours or so over 30 hours with minimal sleep can be very energizing but also be a little risky from an injury standpoint. Fortunately despite some anxious moments, everyone survived unscathed and made it to the finish to cross with our final runner for the medal presentation, team photo and bourbon tasting tent. Lot’s of laughs over the whole trip and Thanksgiving dinner on the way home at Bob Evans family restaurant! Overnight team relays have grown immensely in popularity and the Bourbon Chase certainly strives hard to be unique and to be the best. The team drivers who are driving narrow roads often not on the major maps, navigating and driving on minimal sleep are absolutely crucial to success. In only six years the event has grown to fill up so quickly it is now entry by lottery. Fortunately with a little nod to geographic diversity Canadian Club made it the last two years. On the Sunday free tickets were available at the very genteel Keeneland race course during the fall racing season. We presented the race founder with a Canadian flag buff at the tailgate party and a few dollars were wagered at the track. Anyone interested in taking up the torch next year is welcome to touch base for more detailed info on practicalities…

With the competitive mountain bike, road bike, triathlon and duathlon seasons coming to an end and cyclocross season really heating up with national championships being held this weekend in Winnipeg, MB, people have been asking me a lot lately what the best time of year to get a bike fit is.

A WN Precision bike fit and pedal stroke education session is all about giving each rider the necessary tools to create better in the saddle habits and decisions which guarantee improved efficiency, increased power output and decrease the likely hood of any repetitive strain injury. We are not simply all about seat height, fore/aft position, effective body extension, handlebar drop and proper cleat placement, but we give you the knowledge to train your legs and brain to beat the competition and become a WN'er!

Changing bad habits takes time. After a session with me, on the bike muscle adaption typically requires 60 days in the saddle before your body establishes new muscle motor patterns. Coming in to have your fit done between November and January will allow you to refine these skills while riding a trainer or rollers in a controlled environment over the winter months, so in the spring, your competitive season will start with plenty of WN's.

For more information or to book your fit with a licensed physiotherapist, contact James Van Toever at

Wetsuit back up for sale; previous buyer backed out.

Nineteen Pipeline Wetsuit for sale (full sleeve, size LS, black & blue). Only used one season (four sprint races).

A LS will fit men from 5'6" to 6'0" and from 180-200lbs.

Never used in a pool, no tears.

It's a great wetsuit for beginners (lots of buoyancy and very durable). I had to upgrade to a Pipeline sleeveless as arms didn't fit.

$175 takes it ($300 new).
