If you haven't paid the ticket yet - you don't gotta.

I complained and found out they don't have out of province enforcement.

I unfortunately already paid.

However, RVM offered you and me 25% off for 2008 entry, which is pretty nice of them.

So if you want to avail yourself of that, I'll give you the details.

REALLY!!!?! That's so cool!! I won't be a convict in my home country!

Absolutely I want to know all about it!!

Oh, I finished the ketchup pringles. they were fantastic!

oh, yes.

Matt, I just took the time to look at her pictures and I can tell you this is a doomed relationship. She would just crush you with these biceps!

Anyway. It's just not rizzonable.







PS: this has been cooking for a while and it had to come out. I apologize.

What is the Victoria Marathon course like? How flat is it (Think in Mid-west standards not Portland foothill standards)? Would you say it is a fast course?

RVM is a great course! I does have some inclines, but I wouldn't really call any of them hills. Much flatter than Portland. But probably more hilly than the mid-west. I highly endorse this marathon!
