Running Symposium

So, I'm off to the University of Calgary's Running Symposium tonight and tomorrow.

Tonight the keynote speaker is John "The Penguin" Bingham. I read one of his books last semester and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to tonight!

I have bowed out of the fun(d) run tonight, since I'm still barred from running and all.

Having said that, there are a couple of "active" sessions that I'm registered for tomorrow...

I'm thinking it'll be a good time to debut my new "bionic leg", as Rob calls it. (Thanks, Rob. That one made me laugh... not so sure about the looking "hot" part though!)

It's shaping up to be a very good weekend... though I suspect Sunday I'll have my nose buried in the books for sure!

Have fun at the symposium it sounds like a lot of fun and educational at the same time.

I am sure you'll look "hot" in your bionic leg.

It's the picture you know: runners sitting around listening to a speaker?

Anyway, it sounds as though you have got a leg up on the whole situation.

Let me reassure you, I know about the "hot" part... anything you wear brace or otherwise can cause some discomfort... but then, I'm not even a runner - my experience comes from wearing a cast for 6 weeks - largely in part because I'm not an athlete!

What a great way to spend an evening -- listening to Bingham. Hope the experience is enlightening or at least entertaining.
