Happy New Year!

Ok, I know it is January 7th, so I am a little late with the Happy New Year.  I also haven't posted in a while so I am late with that also.

True to my word, I did not make any New Year's Resolutions for 2013.  This is not to suggest that I couldn't improve, correct or simply change a few things.  We all can.  I just didn't want to make a big grandiose statement for 2013.  Just live the best way I can everyday.

I do have some exciting news though.  In December 2012, I launched 337Multisport.  I already have clients training to improve their half marathon times and one who is training for her very first marathon. I am so excited to be part of their journey.

Over the holidays, I managed to keep up most of my training.  Even celebrated Christmas day with a 40km bike ride outside and New Year's Day with a 7km run.  I enjoyed more than my share of holiday treats and didn't feel one bit guilty about it.

Now it is time to get back to a regular routine.  School is back in session for my son and my husband and I are both back at work.

All the best to everyone in 2013.  Great things are happening.

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.
