Oh Hello there!
It’s been a while!
It’s been a busy summer but I’m still working on my virtual race with team “Three Moms on the Run” – Run Across Nova Scotia. We are currently 646.43k in and on our way to 792km….getting a lot closer to the end of the race!
A few weeks back, the three of us managed to get out for an awesome trail run at Cape Split. It’s about 12k run plus a little bit – round trip of rocks, roots and a little mud too. I’ve only run it twice but have hiked it so many times. It’s so far, my favourite trail run.
It was a wee bit foggy when we got out to the point but was shaping up to be a very hot and humid day. Thankfully, we started our run just around 8am and finished before it was too hot. Lots of hikers on the trail which is always fun to see.
I’ve done a little more trail/dirt road runs and am loving being on the trails more. Hoping to keep that up over the coming months. I’ve even dusted off my treadmill to get in a few runs for this virtual race.
I’m getting excited to finish this virtual event but already wishing their was another one I could sign up for. It’s been a great motivator to keep me running.
This past weekend during the great Garmin outage, I ran a 10k trail/dirt road 10k for another virtual race – Good Clean Run. Since we can’t show up to races here, I’m glad the option is available for virtual races and I have completed 4 this year.
I bought a running hydration vest (Osprey) this summer and I think it’s my favourite piece of running equipment. I take it on every long or HOT run this summer and it hasn’t disappointed me yet. Game changer!
Cycling has taken a back seat which is too bad but I’m hoping to get in a few more rides this summer. I’d love to do a big trail ride but it’s around 117km, point to point and I’ve never done that distance before. However, I’ve also learned to “never say never”!
How is your summer shaping up?
