Chilly Half Marathon and Frosty 5K

Tomorrow is the Chilly Half and the Frosty 5K. This is a great race out of Burlington that happens at the beginning of March and a lot of runners use this as a pre-race run to Around the Bay.
The Benders usually have a great presence at both of these great races and tomorrow’s Chilly is no exception.  I don’t know the exact number (last minute changes and such) but I believe we have something like 29 members participating.  What a great turn out!  The weather is calling for somewhat “mild”  temperatures for the race. Considering we have been in an Arctic deep freeze most of the winter I think anything is better than – 38. Who is ready for winter to end??
We would like to wish each and every one of our Benders a fantastic race tomorrow!!  Have a great time!


Just wanted to wish our fellow Benders a great race this weekend in the windy city for the Chicago marathon.  Todd,  Ivar, John S, Gary,  Firmo,  Samantha and Alan P.

Also we would like to wish Elaine another great marathon out in BC for the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon.

Have a great race everyone,  the temperatures are sure great for running!

Montreal and Berlin

It is a busy weekend for races this weekend.  A group of Benders will be heading over to Quebec to participate in the Rock n Roll marathon in Montreal and Firmo and Samantha have headed over to Germany to participate in the Berlin marathon. These 2 races both sound like they would be very exciting races to be a part of and we can’t wait for them to come back and tell us all about it.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend.
