Garibaldi Park – Rubble Double

The first few weeks of July has seen some glorious weather, if you like +30C degree. Nothing but sunshine and blue skies. As much as I enjoy the warmth of the sunshine, this heat does not make for great running weather. You overheat quickly, become dehydrated even faster and your body grinds to a halt. Pretty hard to feel too tired with views like this. Beautiful trail coming into Cheakamus Lake. Ahhh Black Tusk never gets old! Well...

Squamish 50 Orientation Run

June 22nd was the last of the orientation runs for the Squamish 50. I knew I wanted/had to run the 47km for peace of mind. I woke up that morning tired, unsure of being able to run the full distance.

Anyway, I had my good running friends Adam and Sarah(both wanting to run the...

I had already decided to run the 47km Squamish 50 Orientation run the...

I have said in previous posts that I don’t race often and I signed up for this race last minute, 2 nights before race day actually. I had a few...

Tears on Mount Harvey

Tears on Mount Harvey

A few weeks ago we did a popular North Shore hike that we had previously done for the first time in 2011, Mount Harvey. It has spectacular scenery, on one side of the ridge the Pacific ocean with a chain of islands stretching out as far as the eye can see , and on the other side a sea of beautiful coastal mountains with no end in sight. But it wasn’t just the fantastic scenery that had me reminiscing on this trip. This years summit...
