I’ve spent the past few days putting my ducks in a row for the upcoming Elk/Beaver 50K trail ultra, which happens on May 10. Since it’s an “away” race, there’s more to preparing for it than for my usual local races. Long story short, it’s going to involve a little travel, a little visiting, and a little personal holiday time. Oh yeah – and running a barefoot 50K trail race.
Here’s how it all plays out:
1/ Fly to Vancouver;
2/ Spend a few days visiting with family;
3/ Do some “tourist running” in Vancouver (Sea Wall, here I come!);
4/ Take the ferry and bus to Victoria;
5/ Run the Elk/Beaver ultra;
6/Explore Vancouver Island for a couple of days;
7/ Fly back to Toronto.
That’s a fairly dense package, but I think it’s all going to fit together. Hope so, anyway.
