Race Calendar 2013

Have you planned or even thought about your 2013 racing season?  I have always been someone who planned my life at least a year in advance.  Iron distance triathlon doesn't leave you much time to be spontaneous either.  Most events require you to train for a year let alone the fact you need to sign up for them a year in advance.

So, here is what I have registered for in 2013.  In print and in real life, I have planned and #EPIC year!

March 24, 2013
Olympic Distance Triathlon

May 4, 2013
70.3 or Half Ironman Distance Triathlon

August 25, 2013
Iron Distance Triathlon

Which races have you registered for in 2013?

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.
