Buckin Hell Race Recap

Once again I had a serious case of FOMO and signed up for another Coast Mountain Trail Series race about 4 days before the event. I had a few friends doing it and one friend, Adam, was volunteering.

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

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...
