We spent the weekend in Nelson at a wedding. It’s a super little town, complete with lake, good trails and the best coffee shop I’ve seen in a long time osonegrocoffee We stayed at the Hume Hotel (which is haunted, thank you very much) and spent the weekend cruising around and attending wedding-related affairs.
On our way we stopped in Armstrong to break up the drive and drop the dogs off at the grandparents. I took the opportunity to head out for a little run in the evening. I usually run the same “square”. I dislike 3/4 of the run, but there’s 1/4 that makes it worth it. It reminds me of running in the East: fields, rolling terrain and a horizon, something I don’t get to see often in the Whistler/Pemberton corridor. My legs were DONE but it was good to get out.
I’m back home how, facing down a training program from Val that ought to get me going again… Next up, Squamish tri relay, Vancouver Sprint and the very competitive SPUD RUN tomorrow morning!
And of course, only 2 weeks till I head to France. Might be time to peel the race numbers of the bike and get on it again!
