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!

Pave Culture Cycliste - Barcelona Bike Shop

In March we took a family trip to Spain for spring break.  The primary reason for this trip was to attend football (soccer) matches in Madrid and Barcelona.  As a family, we researched this trip A LOT and found A LOT of very cool things to do in the cities we visited (Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona).  One of those cool things was a destination bike shop in Barcelona.

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…


In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
