    Nice work Grog. The conditions looked rough. Glad you had a good race.

    PS - It's looking more and more like I'll be in Vancouver for the May 6th Marathon, but I think I'll downgrade to the half. I'm just not really into the running long thing right now. We'll see.

    I'm running the half too, so feel free to join! We'll be a small group of people getting there but running on our own I think.

    Thanks for sharing your story, and congrats on sticking it out in that weather, it made me cold just looking at the pictures!
    The best part about going up hills is riding back down!

    Thanks all for your words!

    The interesting thing is that I was never cold during the race. Cycling in the rain is not bad, it's just a matter of being a bit more generous with braking distance and being dressed appropriately.
