Running in my Hood, Steveston BC

Ready to Run
Originally uploaded by erinlesleylee

Today was a beautiful day in Steveston BC. The temperature was -1C clear and sunny. Nice change from the dreadful rain we have had for the past 2 months.

So I put on my capri tights, short sleeve base layer shirt with a heavier long sleeve over top, my hot pink Newtons and my great new touque from Sugoi and headed out for a nice 6km run.

If you click the photo of me, you will see the great stuff that I get to see when I run in my neighbourhood.  Or click HERE for the photo set.

Great place to live and run.

Happy training!

I'm so jealous!!! This morning I woke up to -22, no chance of me running in that (hit the treadmill instead.... boring!)

I stopped in at Steveston over the summer as I was in Vancouver for a conference, gorgeous place!!! Lucky gal! Nice Sugoi stuff too ;)

So much different than the concrete jungle of New York City. It must be a peaceful place to live, raise a family, and run. Thanks for sharing.

I've been to that historic Japanese cannery with my mum, a few years ago, We actually spent the whole day in Steveston, had lunch and browsed the shops. It is a very pretty place. What I envy the most though is that there is no snow or ice!
Took me a second to realize you use C, I was thinking, who in their right mind runs in -1F

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
