Hawaii (Chris D) has been an incredible support of the Academy of Lions Run Crew & led each and everyone of our Long Runs for RunLAB 2.0. He is all about the Community and makes it fun along the way. Over the past few years, he has had Team Steak for the Terry Fox Run and the Run Crew will be partaking in it this year!

Longest run today!
Starting off the long long run with the Terry Fox Run. You really don't have to register. You can join the rest of us at Team Steak if you want to raise money www.terryfox.ca/teamsteak
Show up for 8:45 at the High Park Bloor entrance. There is free parking within the park if you go south to the west side of the loop, just past the race.
The gun time is at 9:00am. It's two loops of High Park totalling roughly 9 to 9.5km. Once the run is done, please feel free to hang out, get massages, get water, sign cards, whatever you'd like.
You're also under no pressure to stay, so go ahead and attack the route.
I'm out of town this weekend, so I won't be there to lead the long, so please know the route if you are going in the front. Apologies for that. I'll miss you all more than my house cat.
Also, be aware of the humidity. The temperature may be around 25, but any humidity over 80% will knock 15-30 seconds off your usual pace.
Please fuel up. A gel every 45 minutes, salt pills are 1 hour. One get before you start running.
Water stations are sparse on the Humber Trail, but available on the MGT. Also focus more on your time on feet. Don't worry about speed with this one. Just focus on your fueling and how your body reacts to the time on feet in co-ordination to your fueling.
Also, try out all your gels for this one, as this is the most important run to figure that out with. You definitely don't want to be figuring that one out on race day. The porta-potties are at least a 7/10 in comparison to other cities' races, but I'd rather you not have to do that then.
Ashley and Ryan will also be on bike support. If you want to bring a water bottle, you can leave it with one of them and catch them on the run to grab it later.
