What's Up??

Wow, that last post was up for far too long!
Things have been rolling along great. After recovering I was able to run in the Banff-Jasper Relay. I was leg N9 which had me running uphill for about 9km and then another 7km of rolling/downhill. It was a blast and it was so good to feel like I could run again!
I cheered D and all the team GP athletes on in Hinton the next day. I dedcided to forgo the Duathlon, I didn't want to press my health/ luck with back to back races. I made a video for a tri 101 clinic we did of the guys at Hinton.

Death Camp was last weekend, and it pretty much blew my socks off. I was ready to pack it in after doing Leg 2 on day one, but it was mostly due to not enough food or water. The leg itself goes on forever and is very technical and tough! I stuck it out and survived the camp. I was barely walking by the time the weekend was over, but I managed to cover the entire course between biking and runing/hiking.

Yesterday I was back to GC to tackle Leg 2 again. This time I had back up in the way of a friend. We had a much more enjoyable hike, and I am not the least bit sore today.

Tomorrow I am back again with another friend and we are going to do leg 3 and 4 back to back. I am looking forward to the LONG day (57km, elevation change over 6000 feet, one 3000 foot climb etc)

The rest of life is crazy, lots going on and some big exciting news coming soon.
