My Podcast Debut

I have mentioned my obsession with podcasts before in my blog, so when I was invited to be the first guest on the Kelownagurl Tris podcast I was beside myself. OK, I did offer to be her guest if she started the podcast, she didn't exactly call me out of the blue.

I have included a picture of Kelowna, BC Canada to the right. Many people wonder why Kelownagurl is named Kelownagurl. You guessed it, she live in Kelowna, BC Canada.

Kelownagurl and I both agree that there was a void in the triathlon podcast world when it came to women in the sport. There are many great running and triathlon podcasts out there but very few (1 or 2 tops) that are hosted by women from a woman's perspective.

Thank you Kelownagurl for filling this void and having me as your first guest. If you find it interesting, I would be happy to give an update in a few months.

Happy training!

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…


In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
