Congratulations to all 2009 Mad Dogs
What a perfect Mad Dog day! The weather was gorgeous and many of you have already commented on the beautiful course laid out by Nick Roberts and Bill James. They were among many volunteers who made this event happen. Our thanks go out to all the volunteers.
Another special thank you is also being sent out to all of our corporate supporters. Mizuno, Pepsi, RBC, Road Warriors and others have generously provided prizes for the race. This adds to the fun of the day.
The results are now posted for all of you to review at http://www.xsnrg.org/maddog/. As you can appreciate, the times may be off by a few seconds for some of you (if you were keeping track, but we did capture everyone. There was one injury on course but the feared broken ankle turned out to be a sprain. Special thanks go out to Clive Randewich who stayed with Vanessa to make sure she was ok. Clive’s sacrifice of his own race time is a testament to him and many other similar runners who place compassion over competition.
I hope the course was challenging enough for everyone and that each of you enjoyed yourselves out there while running. Yes I know that you were probably cursing Nick and Bill at times, but I saw many smiles crossing the finish line so I assume all was forgiven by the end.
A pair or blue Nike shoes were left behind. If anyone wants to claim them, contact me and I will get them back to you. Otherwise I will wash them up and donate them to Sporting Life’s.
If anyone has any comments or suggestions about the race (we have receive a few already) please contact me directly. Thanks again to all of you. You make this race the success it has been for so many years.
Finally, a reminder that this race is put on exclusively by XSNRG Running Club. We meet every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm in mid-Toronto for up to 90 minutes of interval training. The club is geared to all running levels. Visit us at xsnrg.org for more information.
