Without a doubt, my biggest passion is running long distances (particular trail running). My longest run (time) was 18 hrs.
I've run in 3 Consecutive Canadian Death Race Ultra marathons (top 10 finishes). The course consists of 125kms, three mountain summits and over 17,000ft of elevation change as well as the crossing of a major river at our spectacular Hell's Gates canyon at the confluence of the Smoky and Sulphur Rivers.
I've also run the 2008 Lost Souls 100 miles ultra marathon and have finished the 2005 edition of the Trans Rockies Endurance Race (Fernie to Canmore). I have run over ten marathons with an average time of 3:20. I have run over ten ½ marathons and have run in excess of twenty + 10k races.
My ultimate running goal is to compete in Le Marathon des Sables in the Sahara Desert. I'll keep you posted!
I am a runner, but I believe in the importance of cross-training. As a result, I ski; cross country/skate and classic. I snowshoe, enjoy road cycling, tennis, yoga, working indoors at the gym.
