Tour de St. George - A Few More Photos

Brenda sent me a few more photos from our adventure in St. George, Utah last night so I thought I would share them.  

You can see the whole album on Flickr HERE.

Here are a few more of the highlights:

 A bit blurry but you can tell the theme of the day is FUN!

Typical road during the ride.  Rural and a bit bumpy but the view makes up for it

Smile never left my face all day

A fellow participant from Utah also stopped to admire the view and take our picture.  
Utah is a very friendly state

Last rest stop of 4 on the 100km route 

Grabbing a Bonk Breaker from my back pocket

In the last 5kms of the ride we took a turn on to the off road bike path.  
This section of the bike path goes through a driving range.  FOUR!

A walk in the water park in the centre of town to cool down the feet post ride

Checking to see if I am tall enough to ride the Carousel at the park.  Yup, good to go!

Enjoying the Town Centre post ride

I can't say enough good things about this event.  My only regret is doing the 100kms instead of the 100 miles.  

Happy Training!

|ronman Canada Race Report - Part 6 (Final Report but just the beginning)

Run – 42.2kms – 5:11:09 The run was slow and basically went as planned. The first 3kms of the run are in and around the finish line. When I was at about the 2km mark, I could hear Jordon Rapp, the race winner giving his victory interview with Steve King. How crazy is that??!! I have 40kms to go on the run and the winner has finished. As I headed out of town and down Main Street I saw and her husband Erik cheering me on. Not more than 50 feet later I saw and her husband. I was running slowly but had a smile on my face and felt pretty good. I was not really concerned about the distance I had to cover still. I was pretty excited that I had now finished the swim and the bike and was now on the run. It was like being in a dream how quickly the time had passed during the day. Around 9kms into the run I started to feel the distinct tightness of my right IT Band. I had ITB 10 years ago when I first started to run marathons but t

How Not to Pace a 5km Race

Notice anything interesting about my 5km splits for my Las Vegas 5km run? Even though the 1st km was all downhill, I knew I was in trouble when I checked my Garmin 405 to see a 4:20 km time. As you can see, the rest of my kms were quite a bit slower. Any good advice out there for how to properly pace myself for my next 5km?

New Balance Fall Classic Half Marathon Race Report

The New Balance Fall Classic Half Marathon was a great day for me! The weather was cold, windy and rainy but that didn't stop me from getting a PB. My previous PB was the Pacific Roadrunners First Half in 2000 in a time of 2:08:28 (back then I was in the 25-29 Age Group). That was also the first half marathon I ever ran. Since then I was able to run everything from a 2:10 all the way to a 2:20 a couple of years ago but never anything under 2:08:28. My goals for Sunday were to: run under 2:08 run 2:00 run under 2:00 The race started out quickly and mostly downhill as you can see by the chart below. Once the first 3 kms were done, I settled into a solid sub 2hour pace. The course is 2 loops which can be boring but also helpful when trying to set a consistent pace. I started to slow down around the 16-18km mark but had 'banked' a few minutes with my faster start time so I still felt I could come in under the 2 hour time. I used the pacing feature with my Garmin 405
