Race Registration Day

Well, isn't everyday race registration day?  Really?

I am starting to feel like a racing machine this year.  Part of that is probably because I ran 3 races the second week in January so my total is already at 11 races for 2013!  and I am registered for 5 more.  So, why not add to the list...

My Banff Ekiden Relay team (me, Tina, Michelle and Leana) has been waiting patiently for 2013 registration to open and it finally did YESTERDAY!  So, the Little Bloggy Bluebirds are now set to take part on October 19!   It is a 5 stage relay and we have 4 people on the team (one of us will take 2 legs).  I am super excited to run this with these amazing women!

and then there was something about trails that is calling to me.  In fact - I really wanted to sign up for the 5Peaks race in Canmore on Saturday so I could run from afar with my Vancouver Peeps as they all head to Alice Lake this weekend...but that one didn't work out due to family obligations. Guess I will just need to attack a trail with them in person in a few short weeks time.

So instead - I decided to register for the 5 Peaks race on August 10 in Fish Creek Park!  Time to take my trail shoes out for some fun.   The only thing that worries me is that I will fall hopelessly in love with trail running.  Years ago - I used to be an avid hiker and I love trails...I've just never RUN on them.   It could be a dangerous addiction to start...


  1. SO exciting!! You are going to love 5Peaks races, I'm so excited to hear how it goes! Sad you can't run this Saturday in spirit with us, but looking forward to our Grind & Tweet :)

  2. Yes I agree!! you will so love 5Peaks!!! I will run the enduro for you this sat!!! woot. And so excited for the #littlebloggybluebirds to kill it!!

  3. you're missing out by not running more on trails. and 5 peaks races are so much fun. can't wait for the one in edmonton tomorrow.

  4. EXACTLY! We used to hike every weekend and barely saw the mountains last year. Sweaty panting mess or not I don't care, we're running some trails in 2013. Good luck to the Little Bloggy Bluebirds, kick it ladies!

  5. I'm so excited for the relay!! Would love to run some trails sometime too. I'm thinking after Great White North is over?

    1. Absolutely - maybe one weekend, we can attack Nose Hill...that'd kinda be halfway between us :)
