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!

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
