What is Next?

Perhaps I am jumping ahead with this post since I haven't posted my Ironman Canada race report yet. The truth is, my race report is ready to go but I have some people I want to share the details with in person before they read it on my blog. I will say that my Ironman Canada experience was fantastic and a repeat is in the works.

Today I committed to doing a Half Marathon and a Marathon before the end of the year. My coach and I had chatted before Ironman about the importance of having a goal after Ironman. He said that I would recover quickly and be ready for something else in a couple of weeks. I was not totally sold on this. The amazing thing is that I feel really good. All that training time has really paid off, not just on race day but in my recovery. If the weather is good tomorrow, I plan do so a short ride with The SAA (in my Ironman finisher gear of course!)

Here are two races I have registered for:

I am looking forward to running with The SAA again to train for these events. See you all out on the roads!
Happy Training!

I am excited that you have registered for your next races! I did the same thing already and haven't done my IM yet (IMWI). I'm also looking forward to the race report for IMC.

Pave Culture Cycliste - Barcelona Bike Shop

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
