Last post before the BIG DAY!

So I haven’t been as stellar as I thought I was going to be about posting about my Squamish 50 training; but now that it is only 3 days away, I felt that I should try to write one last training post. Last Saturday we successfully summitted Welch Peak, in the Cheam Range of B.C., and it turned out to have the most sustained exposure I have had on a scramble to date. After a success like that I was feeling great. I really thought...

Good Days and Bad Days

So I should be stretching right now, but I wanted to write up a quick post while I am still sweaty and still feeling the sting of being slightly frustrated during my run. That’s right, today was one of those days with running. I think it’s important to talk about the not so great days, because it gives me focus to see what I can work on and helps me to remember that I am just human after all.  There is usually a reason for...

My 3 Day Food Cleanse Experience

I recently started a new job working for an organic grocery delivery company. As someone who tries to be as active as possible and has a goal of running a 50km trail race this summer, I focus a lot on how I fuel my body, so organics seemed right up my alley as I truly believe in clean, natural sustainable produce as the best form of food. Fast forward to 1 month in at the new job and there was discussion at work about doing an office...

The slippery slope to becoming “those kind of people”

We’d just spent the weekend Skiing, Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Trail Running and felt a little anxious that we hadn’t crammed in more to do. Our spare bedroom has never...

Chivalry in the Mountains

Chivalry in the Mountains

This post may ruffle a few feathers but it’s written with the intent to start a conversation rather than create an argument. I want to be very clear from the outset that I’m not saying people shouldn’t be chivalrous. I am saying that a male should be equally chivalrous to other males as well as females when it comes to being in the Mountains. The Modern Western male is all about gender equality. However, some men still make...

Look how far you have come!

“Every pro was once an amateur. Every expert was once a beginner. So dream big and start now.” – Robin Sharma Sometimes it’s good to look back at the point you started from to appreciate where you are now. The other day on my long run I was thinking back to where I was, in regards to fitness and running, about 4 years ago. Back then I couldn’t even run 1 mile without stopping several times. Even 10-15 minutes of...
