Weekly Training Summary: February 29 to March 6, 2016

Week 12 of Gorge 100k training was a bit of a strange (but good!) one. I ran the West Van Run 5k on Saturday and 10k on Sunday and followed each one up with an afternoon trail run. Luckily, despite ominous forecasts, the weather turned out really nice. There was even one of the most amazing rainbows I’ve ever seen! Doing four runs on the weekend really felt like I was running ALL weekend. I didn’t have time for anything else but sleep (and just barely enough for that).

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I'm not sure what changed but i'm glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys. Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
