Weekend in Kamloops

We are just home from the long weekend in Kamloops BC. About a 4 hour drive from Vancouver, we were up there for the Junior Development Track and Field Provincial meet. This was the last track meet of the year for Jamieson. He ran hard and jumped high in the heat and smoke to achieve 2 PRs (100m and 200m).

I went for 2 runs while were up there. A 5.5km and a 12.5km run. Both were tough in the heat (30+C) and the hills in Kamloops are killer!

All in all, a great weekend of activity for the whole family.

PS. If ever find yourself in Kamloops in the summer, I would suggest staying at the Thompson Rivers University Residence (TRU Rez). Free parking, free WiFi, breakfast included plus a 2 bedroom unit for $89.95/night.

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.
