Running Recap: Squamish 50 and Cap Crusher 13km

Ok so this post is well overdue, but better late than never! Here is a quick recap of some running fun I had 2 weekends ago.  Leigh and I decided to charge in different directions the weekend of March 22/23. We both feel it is important to our personal and combined growth if we spend time apart in our chosen pursuits. What we learn separately we can share with each other on our next combined adventures. Saturday, March 22, I was...

“Aw man, this is totally a Type 2 fun kinda day” I can’t remember who said it, or what I was doing when I heard it, but I remember I was suffering.

This has been an odd Winter. Really odd. I’ve experienced 3 Winters since moving to Southwest British Columbia in 2010 and I’m being told that I was spoiled with how amazing they were.
