Vancouver Bike Show

I am happy to say my back is on the mend and feeling better everyday.  After 2 sessions of ART and Chiro, with a RMT Massage thrown in for good measure, I should be feeling almost 100% by next week.  
I plan to stretch, spin, stretch and ice tonight.  It will be nice to have something to update in Daily Mile again.

I am signed up for the Tubbs Romp Stomp on Saturday but don't want to risk a relapse of my back so I am going to miss the event.  I think it will be great and I am very sad to have to miss it.  

Instead, I will be at the Vancouver Bike Show on Saturday from 10-6pm at the Shimano booth.  I hope to see some of you there.  It looks like a great opportunity to check out bikes, gear and all things outdoors.

Below is a 2 for 1 admission voucher.

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.
