Spring is (hopefully) here!
AHHHHHHHHHHHH.It’s officially Spring as of yesterday. It has been truly winter-like for us here on the northwest coast of BC where it’s usually super mild! It has lasted longer than I can ever remember in the past and since I’ve pretty much trained straight through between Fall and Spring racing seasons due to Walt DisneyContinue reading “Spring is (hopefully) here!”

Instead of rolling around I got up at 2:30 and started getting the Donald Duck disguise put together and had the standard peanut butter and banana toast race-day breakfast. My Uber experience was perfect today. WeContinue reading “Day 3: WDW 10km! (caution, this post contains very bad news)”
