Les Templiers
I knew that I had not had a great year of running so far, that was pretty darn obvious and I couldn't ignore the fact but it was not until I read the iRunFar race preview that the stark reality set in - I had not even toed the start line of a trail ultra in...

It's been an uphill battle
Fair to say that 2015 has been a bit of a disaster in terms of my running so far.  I keep saying that there is still time to turn the year around but now sitting in early September I realise that the pages of the calendar are flicking over fast.  However, e...

Stumbling from one race to the next. Now let's regroup :)
About 10 days ago I ran the Mont Blanc 42.2k.  Wow, it was a stunner of a course!  Bluebird skies, warm temperatures, glistening glaciers and flower filled alpine meadows.  It really could not have been more beautiful, but man oh man was my 4th place finish...

Testing times
Having got the green light from my surgeon a few weeks ago I asked myself the question, 'Can I train for Comrades 87k in seven weeks?'  Well, and lets' be honest there those seven weeks included any sort of taper so in realty, I had far less than seven week...

The Joys of and the Reasons why Anti Doping control in Sports is a must
Congratulations!  Your prize for winning the IAU World 100k is US$2000 and the pleasure of being added to the WADA Whereabouts register!  Woo hoo!  So the IAU World 100k was back in mid November and last week I was advised that I need to report "Whereabouts...

Grinding Glaciers in Revelstoke
Having slowly been working my way back from niggling injuries (which are still far from 100% gone) I decided less than two weeks ago to race Glacier Grind 44k in Revelstoke this past weekend (a 5 Peaks race).  It was the perfect balance of being close enoug...

The Great Climate Race!
Most of my blog posts tend to be about races I've run or training updates, but this post is an all out promo of a new 10k (and 2k fun run!) that will be held in Vancouver, BC this coming November.  There are two main reasons that this is a race I'm super ha...

Comrades
Comrades, oh Comrades.  It's pretty hard to have a bad Comrades day because it is such an amazing event.  Did I run fast?  No, not really.  Did I place well?  No, not really.  Am I glad that I raced?  Yes, absolutely. For how my race went down, head over to...

New Ventures
In 2008 I was approached by a friend who managed the Canadian Montrail team at the time and he asked if I wanted to join the team.  Did I want to join?  Wow!  Me?  I had a 3:18 marathon PB and had won a handful of low key, local trail 50ks.  I'd never run 5...

Moon walking on an Alter-G
A while back I got an email inviting me to go try out an anti gravity treadmill by Alter-G .  Being that I like the convenience factor of running in that it is something I can do right out my front door with zero commute time to get to my workout it took me...
