Some thoughts on a race that hurt.
Meet Trailstoke, a 50km ish mountain race in Revelstoke that left me feeling crippled and helpless as I lay in the fetal position licking my wounds.

Ran into this couple ontop of Goat Mtn. They must have been 75+ - gaiters, poles, zinc'd faces but still hiking up steep mountains through snow to more remote areas than most will ever do.

These people inspire me like you wouldn't believe.

Thank YOU for all the love and support this week! I'm happy with how the race went, more importantly, still healthy and more motivated than ever to keep hammering.
Here's how my first ultramarathon victory and course record played out at Beacon Rock 50k.

Aspiring Renaissance Man; I Cook & Eating Lavishly, High-Five strangers whilst running. @HootSuite Community Manager. Washedup International Amateur Athlete. I blog at http://connormeaks.com/
Introduction
I'm a digital media specialist with a passion for building flourishing communities around a brand. I specializes in content strategy and creation, copywriting, and digital media with the goal of establishing international communities online and offline. I currently manage North American community at HootSuite as well as the community content team. I write a ton of content for my personal website, the HootSuite blog, and other online and offline publications.

I'm a past member of the Canadian Men’s National Field Hockey team and a recent graduate from The University of British Columbia. Through three years of playing field hockey for Canada, I accumulated 45 international caps (games played), playing everywhere from Russia to Australia. 

I also write a personal blog, The Aspiring Renaissance Man, about my transition from full time amateur athletics and school to his career in tech and media. The blog initially represented a way to document the process of using social media to educate and assist my efforts toward a career. 

Now the goal of the blog is to inspire, educate, and enlighten others, and show them that any career is possible no matter what your education or background may be.

Outside of sports and social media, I love to cook and eat well, I fishes and frequents the beach in the summer and snowboard as much possible in the winter. I also high fives strangers while running.

My blog can be found at: http://connormeaks.com/
