Mount Royal Summit Quest 2015

On June 21, 2015, I will embark on my first ultra marathon event held right here in Montreal. Its a 50km ultra running through the streets and bike paths in Montreal, and ending at the summit on Mount Royal mountain. Should be fun, and wish me well! This will be the longest test run of the SUMOgrips as well.

This run starts at 6:00AM near my house (how cool is that!) and it goes through Montreal on streets and bike paths, and is run as a “fat ass” type race. Very little support, so we need to be self-sufficient at all times.

Toronto GoodLife Fitness Marathon

Toronto GoodLife Fitness Marathon, held May 3, 2015. This was my first race out of the province and my third marathon. Training through the coldest winter in over 70 years was to say the least, “special”. Like the saying goes, “Summer bodies are made in winter”.

We left for Toronto Saturday morning, along with my wife Penny and our daughter. Penny was competing in her first marathon. After arriving in TO, we went straight to the expo to pick up our kits, then for lunch and off to the hotel in Vaughan.

More to come…
