2011 Races and Training Camp Schedule

Since I am on a roll with my blog posts, I thought I would provide an update of races I am doing in 2011.

Will I see anyone else there?  Let me know so we can meet up.

I am pretty excited about this year since I am moving up an age group and feel like I am right on track with my training.

February - Pacific Roadrunners First Half (I know this has already past)

March - Family trip to the Grand Canyon (not really a race or training camp but still very cool)

April - Delta Triathlon and Easter Base Camp

May - Vancouver Half Marathon and May Long weekend training with Finish Line Coaching

June - Oliver Half Ironman

July - VOWSA Canada Day Swim 4km and Desert Half Ironman

August - Ironman Canada

September to November - TBD

December - Las Vegas Rock N Roll Half Marathon (maybe Marathon)

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.
