Are you looking to add a new dimension to your running by helping someone chase their personal goals? Running is an individual sport but it is enriched when pursued as a team. Achilles Ottawa, a local running club formed in 2010 as a community of support for blind and visually impaired runners and guides in the city, invites you to join us this Sunday, March 29 between 12 and 2 pm for a guide running workshop where you will hear from low-vision runners and experienced guides, have an opportunity to try guide running, and share in a light lunch. The clinic will take place at 715 Mooney’s Bay Place (613-224-5405). We hope you will consider joining us. Please rsvp by this Saturday, March 28 to achillesottawa@gmail.com.

The Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit (University of Ottawa) is looking for individuals of all ages who are interested in participating in exercise studies and learning more about their body. At this time, we are especially interested in recruiting individuals over the age of 50 years, or individuals with type I or type II diabetes, however anyone is welcome to participate.

Each study will consist of one preliminary session and one experimental session. The preliminary session will include a VO2max test (gold standard in assessing aerobic fitness) and a body composition analysis (hydrostatic weighing technique). For anyone over the age of 50, a cardiac stress test (ECG) will also be performed by a qualified technician during the preliminary session. These results will be provided to you free of charge upon completion of the experimental session.

The details of the experimental session will depend on your personal characteristics but will likely consist of light-moderate intensity exercise performed in a warm environment. Exact details of the experimental session will be provided to you before your participation in the study.

Please send your reply to this ad to hepru@uottaw.ca.In your reply please include the following information:
-Name
-Sex
-Age
-Contact Information (telephone # and email if possible)
-Do you have Type I or Type II diabetes? (if so please specify)

3. OTTAWA RACE SPOTS
 Melanie Estable-Porter   (General Comments)

Just a note to share that the Lung Association has charity spots available for the upcoming Ottawa Race Weekend! Some people on our "I Love Lungs" Team utilize our charity spots, others have already registered for the race officially, but wish to join the team as well. Both type of folks are welcome to join us!

While we ask our team members are asked to raise a minimum of $300, but one person may end up raising $100, and the person right beside them $1000 - all are a part of the same awesome "I Love Lungs" Team simply because every penny, every dollar helps the 1 in 5 people with a lung condition breathe a little easier.

I have charity spots in the Ottawa Race's 5km, 10km, 21km distances. Let me know if you are able to join our team, and if you require a spot/registration in the race as well. A registration fee per distance, as charged by the Race, still applies.

We have a huge volunteer crew handing out water at the Ottawa Race FINISH Line waterstation; then we tackle the obstacle course at the July 4th Spartan Race; and then support the cyclists doing the GranFondo Ottawa event on July 25th. Raise funds then run, walk, cycle or crawl through the mud and jump over fire! Or help on event days! Contact Melanie@on.lung.ca
