Reid Coolsaet's Road to London

Speaking of Canadian Content! Hello...



Canada's top marathoner has long since cracked the 2:11:29 Olympic standard time. In fact, he's dipped under that mark twice: 2:11:22 and 2:10:55 at the 2010 & 2011 Toronto Waterfront Marathon, respectively.

He's just returning from a training phase in Kenyan where he ran countless miles with some of the best in the world - even doing some races against them! On February 12th, Reid raced the Diekirch Cross Country race in Luxembourg on a 10.2km course. In a deep field with both young and experienced runners Reid placed 4th in a time of 31:17 (4:56/mile or 3:04/km).

Over the last year Reid has documented his 'Road to London'. In his non-running, eating, and sleeping hours, he has edited together what looks like it going to be an epic montage of his training.
