Ombrelle Face 60 SPF Stick comes in a tube about twice the size of a tube of lipstick or chapstick. Small enough to put in a Fuel Belt pocket or cycling jersey pocket.

It goes on a bit white but when you rub it in, it is invisible. It is not greasy and has a very dry finish.

Plus with the 60 SPF, it has been very effective at prevening sunburn.

The only draw back is the $17.99 price. However, I would buy it again even with the high price.

Happy Training!

But does it sting when you sweat and it runs in your eyes?

I am having trouble getting a sunscreen that doesn't sting!

I use it on my cheeks and nose mostly. I usually wear a hat to run and a helmet when I cycle so that prevents the sweat from running into my eyes.

It doesn't seem to sting at all.
I've been looking for something that won't sting when I sweat. Thanks for the tip!

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.  

|ronman Canada Race Report - Part 6 (Final Report but just the beginning)

Run – 42.2kms – 5:11:09 The run was slow and basically went as planned. The first 3kms of the run are in and around the finish line. When I was at about the 2km mark, I could hear Jordon Rapp, the race winner giving his victory interview with Steve King. How crazy is that??!! I have 40kms to go on the run and the winner has finished. As I headed out of town and down Main Street I saw www.twitter.com/kelownagurl and her husband Erik cheering me on. Not more than 50 feet later I saw www.twitter.com/trifunster and her husband. I was running slowly but had a smile on my face and felt pretty good. I was not really concerned about the distance I had to cover still. I was pretty excited that I had now finished the swim and the bike and was now on the run. It was like being in a dream how quickly the time had passed during the day. Around 9kms into the run I started to feel the distinct tightness of my right IT Band. I had ITB 10 years ago when I first started to run marathons
