Never heard of it nor what happened in Edmonton. I did the zombie survivor. That's the only race I've done.

I did the electrodash on Friday. It was fun but it was super cold! It was hard too as half of it was uphill with no breaks haha (at COP) but I enjoyed it :). What happened in Edmonton?

Oh man. The route they had took them through the river valley on steep hills next to a cliff, people had to go in single fashion and were bottlenecked. No medi's, barely any lighting. I had some friends who did it and it was a giant joke. So many people complaining on the facebook page, they are getting the news involved. I am all for charity runs as I have done quite a few but this one looks like it was terrible! And I guess they lied about it going to charity. I kind of want to drop out of the one on Saturday here in Calgary!

yeah. I don't think they're for charity, color me rad was if you wanted to. We also thought the light could have been better at electro dash. There were parts where the terrain wasn't completely level and without light it could be potentially dangerous, especially if running with kids. There were a few things that looked like speed bumps when going downhill, so my friend and I were running and all of a sudden you make one step and there's no ground where you thought there would be haha (it was too dark to see them). We were ok, but I don't know how I would have felt if I was one of the people running with a stroller. I know that the neon run is at canyon meadows, not COP, so it might be a bit different. 

 

I did color me rad last year and THAT was fun. It was very well organized, during the day so no problems with lights and the terrain was challenging but doable for people of all ages/activity levels.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
