Ready or Not it's 2015!




What an amazingly awesome 2014 I had.  Travelling, racing and celebrating were in abundance throughout the year and especially in July 2014.

2015 is here whether we are ready or not.  What is on the slate for 2015 races?

Peninsula Runners Trail Series (4 races Jan/Feb/Mar)  January - March 2015
Kajaks Ice Breaker 8km  February 1, 2015
Pacific Road Runners First Half Marathon  February 15, 2015
Ironman 70.3 St.George UTAH  May 2, 2015
Challenge ROTH !!!!!!!!  July 12, 2015
Challenge Penticton August 30, 2015

I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of five Canadians to be on the Challenge North America Team.  There are a total of 65 team members from Canada, USA and Mexico.  Pretty excited about this!

Started the year off right with #1 in the Peninsula Runners Trail Series in South Surrey.  Feeling good about how the race went.  Hilly course with moderately technical sections and an open field.  You can check out the data on Strava. 

Next up is #2 Peninsula Runners Trail Series January 18th.  Join me!

Happy Training!

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
