I just went out and ran a 10-k after a couple of weeks off... There is a lot of atmosphere in this city. I went by an Alouettes game in progress at Molson Stadium and a huge outdoor dinner party called "Diner en blanc" in front of club W.
I just bought a new webcam today, and it definitely increases the quality of communication with Alex. Ahhh, technology.
Speaking of technology, I have been exchanging e-mails and data with Oktay all day. He has the same GPS lap timer as I do, and we have been able to compare his laps at Tremblant in the S2000 with mine in the Civic. I am faster in some corners, while he is faster in others and on the straights, giving a lap 1.3 seconds faster for him. His car was also pulling higher lateral G's, despite running on performance street tires. I think this confirms that there is no real performance difference between used race tires and new performance tires.
