Rear View Mirror 2019

So here we are. The beginning of 2020. I just got back from a few days rest out of town, and finally have a moment to plug in. I’ve been thinking back over the year. 2019 was definitely a year of taking things to the next level. Working on building my climbing skills (of which I don’t have much), a few big projects, Pico de … Continue reading Rear View Mirror 2019

Another successful year at MOMAR

2019 MOMAR (Mind over mountain adventure race) marked it’s 20th season, and did not disappoint. A group of three of us left from Richmond to Vancouver island where we would connect with our fourth team member. Arriving on the Friday about mid day Jason, Seb, and myself casually made our way from the ferry terminal up to Comox valley, stopping in at Tidal Tacos, as … Continue reading Another successful year at MOMAR

What drives the Adventure Race?

It’s only a handful of days until we pack up and make our way to Vancouver island for the annual MOMAR (mind over mountain adventure race) in the Comox valley. A 30/50km (depending on your level of masochism) multidisciplinary race consisting of kayaking, mountain biking, and orienteering. I am racing with my friend Jason, whom I have done MOMAR with before. Also joining us this … Continue reading What drives the Adventure Race?

And just like that it’s over.

I woke up just before 6am. It was cool this morning. Not cold but cool. Enough to realize that summer is packing up and leaving town pretty soon. I’m up in the Cariboo on a Dad’s and kids camping trip on my friends parents property. What a riot. It’s labour day Monday, and the next chapter of life begins again tomorrow. A shift away from … Continue reading And just like that it’s over.

Rear View Mirror 2018

Another year has come to an end, and another successful year for racing. I enjoyed getting some new folks into running events, and even hit some personal bests. Also it has been a year of transition. Some new injuries, some old ones too. I’m looking forward to this coming year. We have some good races coming up including MOMAR again this coming September as well … Continue reading Rear View Mirror 2018

The next step..

So here we are. Early December. My journey of adventure has been a bit on the bench as of late. In a twist of events in other parts of my life, work etc. I have side tracked spending time reviewing topo maps, and planning out multi day trips in lieu of forwarding career and trying to figure out family life. The juggling world is a … Continue reading The next step..

Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

So last Saturday, my mate Seb and I go rolling in to Peace park at the southern tip of Coast Meridian road on the banks of the the Pitt River. We were there to attend the inaugural Golden Ears Fondo. Race 1 in a triple crown race series. The other 2 being The Cowichan Crusher in June, and the Kettle Mettle in September. The weather … Continue reading Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

Up next..Gravel Fondo?

So you know when you sign up for a race on a whim. You know you really don’t have any expectations on the outcome, or even what you might be getting yourself into. That would be me with the current race on my plate. The Golden Ears Gravel Fondo. It is it’s inaugural race and 4 days before the race, most of the conversation about … Continue reading Up next..Gravel Fondo?
