Dopey 5K 2017

Day 1 of the Walt Disneyworld Marathon Weekend/Dopey Challenge began on Thursday January 5th, starting with the Dopey 5K race. The start time was 6:00 am, which was very reasonable. But still, I had to wake up as early as 4:00 am just to get into the theme park on time. There were a lot of young […]

Donner and Blitzen 21K

The Christmas holidays are that time of the year when so much is going on – from parties, shopping, family gatherings, lunches and dinners. Everyone’s plate is full. But despite all these events, I made sure not to miss out on racing throughout December. And besides, who wouldn’t be excited to do a Santa Run […]

The Chilly Toe – MEC Half

This race was the second part of my back to back half weekend, following the Birch Bay Mega-Half that I ran on Saturday. It took place on Sunday, December 3 in Richmond BC, with the start and finish at Garry Point Park in Steveston. The day was chilly, but not just where your toes are chilly…it […]

Anacortes Art Dash Half Marathon

Since the start of the Rio Olympics, I have been putting off publishing this blog post as I have been so occupied watching all my favourite Olympic sporting events. Watching the best in the world compete really takes you into another world. These Olympians all somehow make the event they participate in look so easy! […]

Toronto Beaches Jazz Run Half

On July 24th, I was in Toronto to run another half marathon. When I registered, I was purely attracted to the fact that the race took place close to the beach and through the Beaches neighborhood of Toronto, hence the name of the race: the Toronto Beaches Jazz Run Half Marathon. The idea of running […]

Peninsula Runners Fort Langley Half

On July 17th, I was in Fort Langley once again to run my 27th half of the year. It was a beautiful morning. Upon arriving, we snagged the last parking spot available near the race start. As I was about to put my bib on, I bumped into an old friend who also happened to […]

MEC Vancouver Race Series #4

To continue on my earlier blog post (re: the North Face Whistler Half Marathon), I ran the MEC Vancouver Race Series #4 Half Marathon race this past Sunday following Saturday’s Whistler Half Marathon. MEC stands for Mountain Equipment Co-Op and they have retail stores all over Canada. Their races are known to be low-key, no frills/medals type […]
