This past Saturday a few of us ran the 5 Peaks Nakiska trail race, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. The temperature was perfect, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, only a few people saw a bear, and there were some seriously amazing volunteers out there (thanks Adrian).
Thanks to the crew who came out to ride the 1A highway round trip from Banff to Lake Louise today.
Last weekend my bro came in third in his age group for the 2011 Canmore XTERRA!
I was super excited when Erin asked me to join her “4 Summiteers” team for the Canadian Death Race this year. Having grown up in Grande Cache, I knew the 125km route well, and was eager to be on her team! Unfortunately, Erin tore her ACL and was not able to run. Luckily, a gal on our team (who was already signed up to run 2 of the 5 legs (legs 1 and 5)) offered to take over Erin’s leg (leg 3). I hadn’t met either of the ladies on our team (with Lara travelling from Vancouver and Cathy from Kelowna), so I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into…
