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...

March Training Update

A quick update on how things are going with training. Wow… March went by so fast, it’s now the middle of April and the big day is getting ever closer.  Every morning, for at least the last 4 weeks , when I wake up the first thought that usually runs through my mind is how many months and weeks are left until August 10, race day!

Ultrarunner?

Oh my goodness, what did I just do? Ok so I just signed up for the Arc’teryx Squamish 50 50km race August 10,2013.  So far my amateur running career (if I can be so bold as to call it any kind of career) consists of a 10 mile and a 13 mile in 2009 and then a  full marathon in 2011 and 2012.  Just looking at the list on this page makes me realize I don’t really take baby steps when it comes to things like this.
