Day 11
Taking a stat holiday break and not doing any physical activity today. Rest day, it’s an important thing. It’s our first family day in BC. Coming from a small family, I have always been really close to my family. Now I am living in a different country, creating my own little family surrounded by love, friendship and mutual respect.
I think there are couple of values, or principles that should surround a family life to create that strong tight connection between the members of the family.

Day 5
6am 5 miles run with Lilo.

I think my brain is accepting the early morning routines now. I woke up @5.30 even tho I had a bit too many drinks on a Monday night last night. It was great, and I am glad my run didn’t make me regret it. Oh by the way Vancouver, it’s windy out there today.

Day 1

6am 4.5 miles solo run
Do I remember how to do this?
I think I spent the whole month of January trying to decide on what I am going to achieve this year. Which race should I train for, what charity should I support? Then a whole month passed, and I came up with nothing.

One month AFTER

One month AFTER

I knew I can’t write this post without going for a run beforehand. It’s been a month with no running; putting on my running shoes (oh my dear running shoes) felt absolutely nostalgic. They were still covered with mountain dust, sweat and tears… It felt great to be out again. I have been rollerblading and biking lots since the race but to be honest I can’t wait to go back to running. Especially winter running.

Race day and the day AFTER

No Comments Community, Family, Friends, Running

Wow what a journey that was!

It’s been 2 days now and I think I am a bit rested now. Still sore, and covered with awful awful mosquito bites but at least I was able to function like a normal person yesterday.
This race was the most challenging thing I have ever done in my life. And I think it can be the last challenging thing as well. I am not sure if I can push the limits of my body and mind more than this. It was a tough 10 hours on the mountain, on my own, no access to civilization.

LAST Day before the race

LAST day!

We counted down from 152 days! It feels like yesterday… 5 months of training and now I am packing my bags. I have everything I need; awesome support team, lots of supersonic energy gels, medical kit, survival blanket, whistle, bear bell, gatorade, and water… And fresh legs and excitement. Bring it on 30 miles. We are saving lives doing this! Who is afraid of a little pain, I know victory tastes really good afterwards.

1 Day to go

Dear friends,
This is the last Friday before the race. I can’t believe how much we raised so far. We beat last year’s amount and we are getting so close to reach $6000. And those of you who sent me a message or talked to me about how much you are being inspired and proud of what I am doing… I can’t thank you enough. You guys are making this all so worth it too.

7 Days to go

2 laps around the Sasamat Lake. Such a beautiful day today around the lake. We packed our stuff and had a picnic by the lake. I put on my runners and ran around the lake. I love being in a new trail. I always wanted to go to that part of the town for a run, but never were able to justify the drive. But today, it was so worth.

9 Days to go

7pm 4 miles run with Lilo. I went to my happy spot again after tonite. I just love that trail, it’s up and down along the water…
I guess today’s biggest announcement is the video that we published today. It wasn’t an easy thing to do, it took a lot of work to record myself (and also it’s funny to record yourself when you run), Ollie offered his help with editing. And voila, we have a video.
