The SCT 3

Round 3 Go: Sunshine Coast Trail km 95-130 After last Fall, our 50km hike got Candace and I to the half way point of the sunshine coast trail. Tin hut mountain. It was a slog. Skunked on a fire in the cabin, and socked in with weather. The trip ended in a windstorm that had us up all night trying to connect with our shuttle … Continue reading The SCT 3

The Running Project (part 4)

Meh, am I crazy. How long is a year. Dedication to this project for an entire year feels bigger than I thought. Especially given that I have broken down my running into little mini projects. Hitting 100km every month. It starts to become an obsession. Total km so far: 837 Total half marathons: 8 When the going gets tough? As of late, the energy has … Continue reading The Running Project (part 4)

The Running Project (part 1)

For those of you that are just tuning in. You’re just in time! This is my running project for 2022. 1200km running for the year. I dragged myself out of a COVID slump in 2021 and attempted the 1000km challenge, completing it just days before the year’s end. So of course this set my brain into a frenzy of what ifs, and could I’s for … Continue reading The Running Project (part 1)

6 Things I Learned From Running 1000km This Year

This year started out very differently than it is finishing for me. I started out training for a marathon in the spring, having just got back into running, this was a feat in itself. 12 weeks of training up. Yes, it is as exhausting as it sounds. I ran the marathon in May. After completing it (and recovering from it) I got to thinking, could … Continue reading 6 Things I Learned From Running 1000km This Year
