RT(U)W with Karen. 10 different maps though we didn't get to 3 of them. Took off the time and distance that we were on the LRT (and the 9 minutes at the end)! So 'only' did 31k! Our strategy wasn't the best... Considering my longest run for well over a year would be less than 10 k, I'm glad we survived :). Jane and Christin were awesome - second fastest on the course and beating a team of much younger ultra runners by 20 points! However, lots of fun, and great food and draw prizes afterwards! Thanks Nicki and Co :) Sundre next year!!

I was SO not ready for winter when I went for a run this afternoon - temps around freezing, an inch of wet snow of the grass, biting north wind and sleet... however, after about 10 minutes the sun managed to poke through, the sleet and wind stopped and winter seemed a lot more acceptable :-) !
Did manage 15 minutes of tempo. Though I see my average speed for the tempo part was only marginally greater than the warm-up.... More hills though! And higher heart rate...
