Off to IM Camp

He looks a little more comfortable on the bike than I do.

Today I am driving up to Penticton BC with some of my SAA BFFs to start our IM Camp.

We are all looking forward to an epic amount of training. I have to admit that I am still not 100% comfortable on my awesome tri bike. I bought my tri bike last summer from pro triathlete Jonathan Caron (the bike he is riding in the photos is now my bike) and have been riding it on the trainer all winter. Riding the bike on road is a different story though.

This weekend will definitely give the me practice I need and build my confidence.

Happy Training!

In March we took a family trip to Spain for spring break.  The primary reason for this trip was to attend football (soccer) matches in Madrid and Barcelona.  As a family, we researched this trip A LOT and found A LOT of very cool things to do in the cities we visited (Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona).  One of those cool things was a destination bike shop in Barcelona.

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
