Parkersburg Half Marathon this weekend

Traveling to West Virgina this weekend to race a half marathon as part of our preparation for Toronto. Reid and I are both doing it. The course description is a hilly one which may prevent a quick time. But really you’d be hard pressed to find a place in Canada or the US  you can expect to run fast at in the middle of August.

Vancouver Sun Run

On Sunday I competed in the Sun Run, Canada’s biggest road race with over 50,000 participants. I was aiming for the win but finished a few seconds back. It can down to a Kenyan, Kip Kangogo and myself in the last kilometer. He put on a strong move up the bridge, I covered and tried my own move coming down the other side but Kangogo had one more gear then I on this day. I wasn’t happy finishing second but it should get me refocused, time to train harder and smarter.
