Run your feet off!

Well, where are we at? We have quickly approached the middle of the year, and WOW the first half has been bonkers with running. Like a lot of running. Trail, road, day and night, you name it we got it. And it’s all for sale! We have tackled some pretty amazing things so far. 1 full marathon, 6 half marathons, a 4x4x48 challenge, and the … Continue reading Run your feet off!

Run your City

Have you ever run around your city? No your whole city, like the whole fucking thing? Like every metre of its border?… As a runner I have. It was a lot bigger (63kms round and round) and not as easy to do as I thought. Challenges with reroutes and lack of accessibility to parts of the city as well as some fairly sketchy roads with … Continue reading Run your City

Going the Distance

Ok seriously. We are doing this. Right? The idea. A run. A run around the city you live in. Sounds good. The catch. The perimeter of the city you live in lies somewhere north of 60km all in. Well I guess we’re running an ultra marathon then, aren’t we? The idea had been mentioned to me a while back while on a run with another … Continue reading Going the Distance

48hr Sufferfest

What the hell was I thinking? That was certainly the thought that came to mind lacing up the shoes as we were getting ready to head out on leg one. I nervously tied the laces too tight and fumbling around to readjust them. We had 5 minutes to get out the door for the 8pm starting time. A 4 mile run lay ahead of us … Continue reading 48hr Sufferfest

On the Horizon

It starts with a commitment. Visualizing a goal, setting up a path for yourself to navigate, and keeping yourself honest about the work that goes into achieving that goal. Rolling into 2023, I hadn’t really set in stone any “must do’s”. Truthfully I was so busy trying to complete my last running project I hadn’t really given myself the time to reflect on the year … Continue reading On the Horizon

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

On the edge of everywhere

I stop to catch my breath. The morning sun is already warm. A fine change from recent weeks. I’m 7 kms in to my morning run and the sweat is beginning to sting my eyes. Keep moving! I am trying to tie off my monthly running goal by the end of the long weekend so I have a few days to shift gears. Doubtful. We’ll … Continue reading On the edge of everywhere
