Some of the Course Action
BOOOOOOM! Put an
aggressive time on the board at the Apex Dash
to set the bar high for everyone else running
I want to scream
praises from the top of the highest mountain
for Dennis Legault, and the rest of the Apex
Warrior team for how unbelievable marked the
course was. Between the striped tape and the
painted signs, there was absolutely no confusion
as to the route we had to follow. Every other
aspect of the race was also executed at the
highest level, just like everything Apex does.
It was absolutely
PERFECT conditions out there today. Legit couldn't
have asked for better weather. Rain held off,
it wasn't too warm, the black flies were nowhere
to be seen, the trails were the driest they
have been all year, and the sun actually shined
for like half of the race. Absolutely amazing!!!
It was nice to
see Devon Prosser, Ross Beyers and Ashley Hayes
out there getting after it! I love seeing people
in the trails, it's such a motivator.
Good luck to everyone
else running the Dash this week! Tag me up in
your race posts so I can see where I stand!

Toronto Virtual Run
for the Ladies
Covid-19 has changed
many things in our everyday lives. Normally each year
my daughter, Jenn Trowell and I do one or two of the
Women’s Series events at Sunnybrook Park in
Toronto – a wonderful women’s race for
POGO - Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario. I have
loved doing the event with my daughter – she
runs and I walk and we share the event with many women.
It is wonderful to see so many women running and walking:
moms and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters,
friends etc. The Toronto Firefighters give out chocolate
near the end of the event. Unfortunately this year
it has been understandably cancelled as an in-person
event but fortunately, it has gone virtual for the
Jenn and I decided to
do the virtual run/walk – we had approximately
three weeks to do it but we decided to do it at the
same time. On Saturday, May 23rd we started at 09:30
– Jenn in Mississauga and me here in Sudbury
– both doing the 10 km. event. We texted each
other at the start and sent pictures. I did half the
loop of the usual Hypothermic Half event – strange
to run a 10 km event without volunteers cheering you
on and having water stations. However, it was great
thinking we were doing it together – our registration
fee means we will get shirts and Medals and, also,
donating to Pediatric Oncology. We took pictures at
the end and, as you can see in the picture, we tried
to show the connection we were feeling – my
The event goes on until
June 7th if anyone in the Sudbury community is looking
for a virtual run to have as a goal – 1/2 marathon,
10 and 5 km events. Of course it is in aid of a wonderful
charity – Pediatric Oncology. Jenn and I look
forward to another of the run/walks in the series
this year. Next year we hope to be back at Sunnybrook
Park in Toronto doing our mother-daughter event.

High School Senior
Leo Daschbach Runs Sub-4:00 Mile at the Quarantine Clasico
He becomes just the 11th high school runner
to break four minutes in the distance.
MAY 25, 2020
A group of high school
milers achieved historic performances in the Quarantine
Clasico: Sub-4 Attempt, closing out this chapter of
their careers with a bang.
On Saturday, May 23,
Leo Daschbach became the 11th high school runner in
history to break four minutes in the mile. The senior
from Highland High School in Gilbert, Arizona, won
the mile race in 3:59.54.
realize I was going to run sub-four until I literally
leaned across the line and the clock still said 59
[seconds],” Daschbach told MileSplit. “I
still can’t believe it. That’s amazing
The small competition
was organized after high school seasons were canceled
as a safety precaution in response to the global coronavirus
outbreak. The race took place at Oak Ridge High School
in El Dorado Hills, a rural community 20 miles east
of Sacramento, California; COVID-19 restrictions have
started to relax in select California counties.
Daschbach is the first
high school runner since 2017 to break the four-minute
barrier. Prior to the Quarantine Clasico, Daschbach’s
personal best was 4:03.98 from the 2019 Brooks PR
Invitational. He is now the fastest miler in Arizona
history, according to AZ Central.
