Want to join us for 160km on the bike?

Tomorrow will be a new longest ride for me. On the schedule is 160kms. Starting at 7:30am tomorrow, this is the route the SAA will be riding. Feel free to come out and cheer us on.

As you can see, it isn't exactly 160kms so I will need to do a few extra loops of the parking lot or a quick out and back to start. Nothing worse than getting back to your starting point a few kms short and making them up at the end.

Looks like a nice hilly one also. Eeek!


At least you're in a beautiful part of the country to spending that many hours on a bike. Should be a lot of fun!

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.
