      Nice comfy, Barb! I've been wondering if I should try training overdressed, as my main training cycles are in coolish winter weather for spring races that are sometimes unseasonably warm.

      It's always hard to figure out how to dress when the weather is changing. Learning how to run when you are uncomfortable will pay off on race day, although gloves would drive me crazy too. :)

      @Pierre - i sure hope so! today i could have been in shorts and a tshirt. sob. @Chris - the gloves I think are my least favourite part of this attempt to heat train. they reallyreally feel gross. bleh. but i'm tellin' ya, last May it was 35C for the race and I was so not ready for that spike in temperature I vowed this year I would heat train for sure....so here we are...............but what I wouldn't give to be out in shorts and a tee feeling easy breezy!

      So tough, Barb! You'll be glad of it when you gloat over your finish time but for now, this is amazing dedication, hard work and discipline. I know what you mean though, I told you a while ago when I was doing track work (I miss the track work, will be back on the thing soon) that it was just "kill me now"... at some points in the run... but survive it and life is good afterward.

      Yes, I used to commute a few times a week to work (13km each way) by bike, but that job didn't last... now I can't bike any more due to the knee (I might try again in a while, but right now, nope, not gonna risk it after the last few times.) I agree, it's great for your health as long as you don't get killed or maimed while doing it.

      @pierre- yes, one of the things they stressed was that the fact that cycling was so helpful for lowering levels of cvd and cancer that perhaps this was more fuel for helping to create infrastructure that would make cycling a safe option for everyone.
      @Larry - thanks!

      Marina - he is not light. that's for sure. :P probably around 50 pounds with him and the stroller. I mean, the thing is on wheels, but when you have to push it up a hill it may as well be on squares or something. i remember back when L was born someone from here who doesn't post anymore gave me sound words of advice for running with a stroller "run the terrain" ie: run really fast downhill and use the stroller's weight to help because when you have to go up hill you're screwed. and it's so true.
