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

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!

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!

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.
