This is a picture that was taken of me right after I finished my first full marathon race back in May 2015. The time was 4:56:00 not great time, but how many people can say they have completed a full marathon. I trained with the Red Deer Runners winter training program.
In July 2015 I completed my very first trail race, the 5 Peaks 13.2 Km at Glenbow Ranch in Cental Alberta. The overrall race was very difficult with over 500 meters of hill climb. I did ot take this race seriously and I should have, it kicked my ass! I completed the race in a time of 1:35:04, not bad for my first try.
Action picture of myself crossing the finish line at my first ever half marathon. I completed the 21.1k course in a time of 2:13:04.
I have really taken to running in the winter. At first I was worried about running in the winter as I have never done it before, however with a bit of research I was able to figure out what clothing I needed. It really is quite enjoyable running in the winter and have logged quite a few km's in the snow.
This is a picture of myself crossing the Bower Ponds bridge during the 2015 Harvest Run. I finished with a time 44:18, 4 seconds slower than last year.
This is the beautiful trail that circles the River Bend Golf course in Red Deer. It is also part of the Red Deer Woody's Full Marathon route.
