    That was definitely some emotional writing here, Watson ol’ boy. Although I must say–what a hilarious story about faking the tequila shot. Anyways…super chuffed to read that you and Vancouver are getting on. I’ve made a big decision as well to leave the solo training scene here south of the Fraser River and join with the Forerunners clinic in search of PBs. I’ve got to satisfy my need for speed.

    Much like Sir Alex at the Theatre of Dreams, Coach Pete will forever be revered here in the reader comments section of Le Blog
    RESPECT, Coach Pete

    You look like a stud in all of your photos. Actor material right there.

    It sounds to me (not that I know wtf I’m talking about, I line up in the slowpoke corrals) like you’re making the right decision. It seems kind of counterproductive to be working out with BCEP and yet trying to do different workouts from them. Get in there and roll with them!

    Team Watson got you here. Now you’re ready for the next thing. That’s not lame. That you’re ready for it is, itself, a testament to Team Watson. Big, big respect.

    Here’s to 2:10!

    Good move Destroyer, you need to be selfish in running and think for the better for yourself. I’m sure Richard Lee will look after your best interest’s as your bro did, this way your not between anyones lifestyle. You’ll get used to it and find yourself a nice cougar that will look after you lol :-)

    But what about the gluten free thing?

    why do people always screw with success – your strategically scheduled training hiatus’ with your brother obviously worked – leading you out of the marathon wilderness -with so much always going on in your life in Vancouver how will you mentally detach and move into the required training only zone? – Mike Tyson never came close to losing a fight until he decided to make his own training decision surrounded by distractions – he never was the same again and years later admitted it was a major mistake – you had a great coach and the best training partners in Guelph and you didn’t overcome the distractions there so now with a lesser coach and lesser quality training partners and better distractions how is this an improvement?

      Fair enough, you are entitled to your opinion.
      I think that this is best for my career, and that’s all the justification I need.

      ps. I can still head for the hills and hit up some training camps whenever needed.
      ps #2. That “lesser coach, lesser training partners” comment was ignorant as hell.

  10. Remarkable things here. I am very satisfied to peer your
    article. Thanks so much and I am looking ahead to contact you.
