Sunshine Coast Trail shelters & huts

Over the last year and a half the Powell River Parks and Wilderness Society (PR PAWS) has built four large shelters and a hut in strategic locations along the Sunshine Coast Trail (SCT). Our plans call for two more shelters and another hut to be built this year and next. Together with some B&Bs they will provide shelter/accommodation every 10 to 20 km so hikers don't have to carry a tent.

Man Found Unconscious After Night Run

Last night was the 9th annual MardiGras version of the Club Fat Ass Capilano Canyon Night Run. This run takes about 90 minutes and is a great way for trail and road runners to get a feel for what it's like to run in the night. It's a very low-key event: Nobody really cares how far or fast participants run. There are 12 and 17-kilometer run courses, but there's also a "roll-your-own" distance for those who want to run farther, shorter or to accommodate those who get lost.

Ultrarunning vs. Triathlons

When asked, "What's your favorite sport?", I always have to stop and think about the question. 

I love sliding on snow in all of its forms (downhill, cross-country, back-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding.)  If I could do anything I darn-well pleased and money was no object, it would surely be descending steep slopes of deep, dry, untracked powder on a sunny, sub-zero day.  Unfortunately, heli-skiing and cat-skiing are more addictive and expensive than crack, so I don't do them that often.

On Bonking

This past Saturday was the 9th Annual Seymour Super Fun Run.  Although I signed up for the 27K, I had no intention of running that far.  Saturday was supposed to be the day I cleaned the gutters, raked the leaves and completed other yard work. Have to be responsible, after all.

Help Me Support the Canadian Diabetes Association

... Thank-you if you have already donated.

I have joined Team Diabetes, a team of people from across Canada who will be crossing the finish line together and who have raised funds to support the more than 9 million Canadians living with diabetes or pre-diabetes.  I will be on the course of the 2011 Test Of Metal-Squamish, BC.

It takes dedication to be part of Team Diabetes, but I am committed to making a big difference in my life, and in the fight against type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

A4K and the Fitness Freaks

Hello my friends,

Washington Run-about

Finally back at the computer and the forgotten cable for my camera.
 
Photos from my run in the Alpine Lakes area above Leavenworth WA are at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157625027046425/show/ This is an area I definitely want to get back to and explore some more. Unfortunately this trip was limited to one night as Oktoberfest started the 2nd day I was there and no accommodation was to be had for miles.
