Summer 2011 is now over. Here is a summary in a few quick snapshots.
This summer was very slow to start- pretty crummy weather till about August, but we managed to squeeze out a few adventuresome weekends around B.C. in spite of it all.
I managed some great training this summer, but was disappointed as I was not able to apply it to 'my first 50 miler'. I trained for two of them, but never ended up making it to either one ! (funerals, etc). I could imagine how disappointed someone would be who put all the training time in for say, a 100 miler, then ends up not going. Oh well.

Long, flat, dry, hot Run .....
Skaha Lake. Memories of this should get me through the winter.
