Around the Olympic Peninsula in 3 months

Around the Olympic Peninsula in 3 months

My virtual tour started Jan 1, 2011.  But I was running in the snow and rain, and even riding on a trainer.  I often wondered about going along this route for real.  The pictures speak a thousand words of Olympic Pennisula’s beauty. La Push looks like a really nice place to visit the ocean.

The Ides of March Brings The Running Race Season.

The Ides of March Brings The Running Race Season.

So its mid march and over the last three months I started running and added a couple of goals to my 2011 bucket list.  The April Fools half marathon, the Sun Run and the Bare Bones Duo.  When I first started running in December after my first run, I couldn’t walk for two days without wincing up the stairs.  I ran in the Resolution Run 10km and completed a 55min 10km.  I’ve hit the track once a week and run 4 days per week and cycle 2 days per week.  Anyway, I came down with this wicked flu/cold that sidelined me for 3 weeks and really affected my Duathlon at UBC, however I did pretty good with a 22nd place finished with a 22min/24min 5km split times.  My progress on running has come to fruition and I’m really enjoying it.  To date since January, I’ve run 229km and cycled 391km – 620km completed and time to start my virtual tour down into the states!
