|This is about 50% of the 13,000 running the 1/2 marathon according to Rod who was in about the middle of the starting corrals.|

'Jed': I don't know if I would agree with suffering...it is the wrong word for me, I push myself in endurance running. I don't suffer but I do hurt at times. It is a good hurt as I know it means I pushed the limits and grew because of it. I never consider it suffering as I enjoy it too much. If I over do it and injure myself then I pay the price of not training smart. I practice a lot of injury prevention techniques and to date I have not had a bad injury.
Looking back over the Canada Army Run, what joy did you get from the race?
'Jed': I met twitter friends for the first time. I went on a road trip with my wife to beautiful Ottawa. I got to run with some amazing and inspiring soldiers who defend our country and way of life, some were injured and were there running or wheeling with us...it was a very inspirational run and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

'Jed': That about covers it.
