Summer update

I have been somewhat remiss on the blog updates recently due to summer catching up on me all too quickly and I've actually been running! The likes of Deere, Myers, McCloy, Dalton, Wanford and Pynten had an epic run yesterday in Kananaskis. Humbled and sore we all lived to fight another day (and in fact there's talk of another one next weekend). None will be so sore as McCloy whose size 13 feet tripped him up 3 times in the first 45 minutes. I guess that's why he never races the trails...

Races I've missed blogging about:
  • Canmore Challenge - Mr and Mrs Hulburt showed their marital class and won the men's 12k event and the women's 8k event at this trail race. I didn't see Jen's race but Sean was a class apart;
  • Powderface 42k - Harriers Villeneuve and Penny came 2nd and 3rd respectively in this race with Phil in particular knocking a good 15 minutes off his previous best. (Phil was gearing up for the Death Race which he had less fun in but we don't do negatives on this blog...);
  • Stampede Road Race - the half marathon was the main event and Harriers Bell (2nd) and Penny (4th) made sure the vest was prominent at the front. Blaine's placing (and time of 82 minutes) was all the more impressive given that he was pushing his 6 year old son, Evan, the whole way to promote his new-formed charity MitoCanada, which provides support for families with Mitochondrial Disease (who Evan unfortunately has).

Apologies to anyone I've missed. The next 5k will be Wednesday August 18 at 7pm at the Y in Eau Claire. Also, keep the diaries free for the Ekiden and Confederation Park relays...
