    Excellent news, Watson. I appreciate your tribute to Bane’s line “born into it…molded by it”. Your mental discipline will serve you well, young Jedi.

    you have come a long way since I watched you run the exhibition part mile loop with Reid and Eric. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed getting to know you through your blog. You have displayed a rare sense of humility that leads to growth and success. Keep up the attitude and very good things will come.

    You are a great lad and I am so excited for the things you are going to accomplish, very soon in fact.

    Make the Toronto run the best of your life. I cant wait to give you a man hug in Guelph the next time I see you.

    Go man go.

      Keep rolling Dean.

    Robbie: Like the longer taper idea. Think it will really benefit you after a long year. You seemed primed for Oct 20th. That brother of yours has you ready to go. Good luck. BTW, love the new 1400v2 on your feet. We will promote it at NBL as the shoe the Robbie Watson runs in.

    • rob says:

      Hey Paul!
      Yeah, we figured the more rest the better after such a busy year. We will be ready to rock that sucker!
      Yeah, the 1400v2 in an amazing shoe! I’m going to be in London for a few days after the race, I’ll have to stop by to check out the store.
      Have a great one Paul.

      Thanks Carlene, appreciate the kind words and support. Also appreciate the advice, I will indeed continue to run strong! You do the same!

    Rob, when reading your blogs, I always relate to your love of running history. I was raised in London in the 70’s and my dad was a marathoner. We travelled often to races around S. Ont. too. likely the best memories are of the Springbank International RR.
    DRAYTON, Rodgers, Shorter… even Alberto Salazar as a high schooler!
    My pops was a 2:30 marathoner and was club champion 4 year in a row back then.
    Thanks for taking me back in time on this account of the Virginia race with Shorter and Rodgers!
    Good luck in TO!

    • rob says:

      Hey Fergus, no problem man, glad you enjoyed it!
      Guess where Rodgers and Shorter raced the week after this 75′ Lynchburg 10miler? Yeah, both were up in London at Springbank, Drayton beat em’ both!
      Must have been so cool to see those guys rolling in their prime. Our sport does indeed have such a rich and interesting history.
      Thanks again for stopping by the blog.

    Will be there doing the half, looking fwd to watching you cross the line.

    big fan of the blog, keep it rollin.

    • rob says:

      Thanks Dave, Good luck in the half, have fun out there! (but not too much fun, also make it hurt and get ugly if you have to)

    The hill is actually referred to as Farm Basket “Hill” because of the country store (http://www.thefarmbasket.com/) that lies at its bottom.
