Day 31

No Comments Dogs, Running, Snowboarding

Day 31
7am snowshoeing with the girls, then 4 miles tempo run in the afternoon. Oh we had a blast on the mountain this morning with the girls. I woke up early, drove to Cypress. We were there at 7am, first car to park -it’s a rare thing believe me. I let the girls run and be wild since we were the only ones on the snowshoe trails. It was a blast, the sun was shining, clear blue sky, me and the girls just enjoyed the snow before the city woke up. Annnd, they slept for the rest of the day in the sun at home. Not bad eh?

Day 23
Snowboarding @Whistler Blackomb. You may think I was slacking yesterday by not posting. But in fact, we woke up @4.30, walked the doggies, then drove to Whistler to be there @8. That was early even for me. It was all worth it, amazing powpow day before the crowd showed up. Sunny sky…
Ollie says I should write about getting out of our comfort zone and pushing our limits, because today was one of those days for me.

1 year AFTER

Rest day, driving back from Whistler.

It was last March 18 that I ran my first marathon. It was then that we raised more than $5000 to rescue dogs from the shelters. And here it is, run bubbles run is back for 2012 with another challenge for an amazing cause.

2 miles with Lilo

We had an amazing night last night at Cypress. There was so much snow! So fresh and it was really quiet as well. I guess everybody was watching the Canucks game. It’s pretty hard to go for a run in the morning then go snowboarding at night and then get up and go for another run the next morning… I am tired.  And I can eat the world right now.

Day off running. Snowboarding @Whistler.

We had an amazing day at Whistler today as well. The sun was out and the snow was just perfect. I feel pretty tired after this weekend’s activities. I managed to squeeze a steam room and pool session before the end of the day. It was exactly what I needed to open those joints! Back to running tomorrow. I hope it would be a dry morning.

6 am 3 miles solo run

Sorry for the delayed entry. I am having technical difficulties this morning.
Last night was pretty amazing up at Cypress. Super clear sky, no lines, the grooming machines were working constantly and it wasn’t really pow pow but still darn good. I am so glad that I went there.

Day off running.

Went to Cypress last night for couple of hours of snowboarding. Not really liking running and snowboarding on the same day, but hey what can you do when there is fresh snow?

Heading to the physio this morning to keep an eye on my legs. Cannot really afford to have an injury after this point so it’s good to get things checked.

Happy friday everyone and try to stay dry out there. Love you all.

Breakfast: Latte and a scone.
