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.

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)

Dirtbag Adjacent

So when you’re not a dirtbag. You don’t live in a van.
