I totally forgot I even had a 'blog site' ! Apparently I set this one up 2 years ago, which is about right because I have been very busy the last 2 years.
I have been busy acting as the registrar for our figure skating club which involves managing over 300 skaters. I have also been busy studying in any spare minute I had so I can challenge some advanced physiotherapy exams. Not to mention working, and continuing to work on my running! Well, the exams are done and I have stepped down after volunteering for 5 years. As I get back into my life, I find it funny I find my blog!
As for running, Jim and I have continued to train and enjoy the progress. It is like a neat experiment to see how much better we can get. I have improved my 1/2 marathon time to 1:36 (albeit a net downhill scotiabank-but I'll take it). We have spent most of our time on the trails. I beat my previous times in the 5 peaks series- but diddn't do as well as I planned as there are so many talented runners hitting the trails. Those tall long legged women are hard to keep up to!
This year its all about endurance. We can now trail run for 4 1/2 hours. I had hoped to do the Diez vista 50 K, but it lands the same weekend as the Sun Run (which I actually got seeded for,which may never happen again cuz I am only getting older). The Vancouver Marathon will have to do. Its enough to put some fear into me. I just need to work out my fluids and fuel-its like a science and an art, very cool !
