North Shore Tri

I have picked up my race package, had my bike checked, prepared my gear for tomorrow and I am ready for tomorrow's race.

Below are last year's results from the North Shore Tri. I believe that I can shave a few minutes off the bike and the run this year. The weather is calling for overcast skies with no rain in the morning. I hope this hold true.

My goal is not to walk during the very hilly run and come at least in the top 1/2 of my age group.

2008 North Shore Tri results
740m Swim = 14:02
T1/20km Bike/T2 = 45:49
5km Run = 29:30
20/27 Females in the 35-39 Age Group (truly below average)

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.
