10 weeks til Eugene.

In 2019 I made a vow not to run a full marathon in 2020. It was time for a break. I ran a final pair of marathons on back-to-back weekends in October 2019 (Victoria, Kelowna, went better than would be expected) and figured that would do me for a while and let me focus onContinue reading “10 weeks til Eugene.”

Jack & Jill’s Downhill Marathon event review and race recap!

I need to start by praising the organizers for the fantastic pre-race communication. Jack & Jill’s Downhill Marathon info emails started rolling in ten days before the race and I’d received five, including this exceeds-expectations weather update, by the Friday before! On Friday I drove to Terrace to fly to Vancouver, then on Saturday morningContinue reading “Jack & Jill’s Downhill Marathon event review and race recap!”
