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.

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...

“Déjame Vivir” Review

“Déjame Vivir” or, translated into english “Let me live” is the second installment in the “Summits of my life” series about Kilian Jornet. Kilian has been a household name in Ultrarunning in Europe for a while now but I only found out about him last year when I started seeing trailers for the first installment of his “Summits of my life” series, called “A fine line” bubbling to the top of my news feed. It instantly grabbed my...
