2009 The Highlights
As sad as it is as that the year draws to a close, it brings about a time for reflection. A time where I can look back and admire what I have managed to do in the past 12 months and perhaps think a little about how I want to spend the next 12.
It gives me time to appreciate how fortunate I am in my life to be able to really live it how I choose to, restricted only by my own self imposed boundaries and self limiting beliefs that I am learning how to control.
When I started out this blog about a year ago, I was a total newie to the whole ‘endurance’ scene and I used this as an accountability tool more than anything else. The last year has seen this blog develop and become my voice as a member of the running community in Vancouver. It has allowed me to share my goals, and document my experiences along the way. As I glance back it is easy to see that have been many.
My highlights are summarised below:
1st 50km – Chuckanut. Finished under 5 hours and 30 minutes.
1st 50 Mile – STORMY. Finished under 9 hours.
5 Peaks Trail Running Series – Finished Series 3rd overall in Age Group.
Nike Womens Half Marathon – Pace bunny for 2 hours. Ran barefoot. Finished 1:59.
1st 60km Adventure Race – MOMAR Cumberland – 4th Coed Couple
1st Kayak race – Big Chop – 2nd Coed Couple in class
Obtained Cycling BC, Cat 5 men racing licence
Competed in the Escape Velocity Tuesday Night World Champ Criterium
250Km Cycling Gran Fondo on Vancouver Island
Bahamas – Nassau
Turks & Caicos
BCRPA Certified Personal Trainer
PADI Certified Diver
For me 2010 will be all about going bigger.
I plan to run further, 100km, 100M and 250km(staged) races.
I plan to work harder, launching my ‘pricey trains’ brand and helping others achieve their fitness goals.
And I plan to have fun, competing with friends and sharing in life’s experiences along the way.
Happy Holidays to all and thanks for stopping by and sharing these highlights with me along the way.
