A Nice Long Run on the Diez Vista Route
The rain held off and Wendy, Neil and I enjoyed a good tough outing on the Diez Vista route. There is a 50 km run on this route in a few weeks. We have participated in it a few years now - it was my very first Ultra Trail Run in 2005. Wendy despite all her running experience had never been up and down the Diez Vista Trail. It was an honour to take her on her first! As we were running one route out there Club Fat Ass was hosting the Run to the Clouds event close by. Our route took us about 4 hours which is just what we had estimated it to be. Once back to the car there was a message from Heather saying the post run event was at the Golden Spike Pub close by. Let's join them! It was great to catch up with Heather and Ean as well as many others who were participating in the event. We enjoyed a beverage and some food before the draw prizes started to happen. Neil, Heather and I all won Ryder Sunglasses and coffee mugs. Very Nice! Glad we showed up! Many thanks to the host! Planning another nice long run next weekend in Squamish, Wendy wants to show us some of her favourite trails there - it's Easter weekend which means 4 days off work so we should be able to run long a few days. Thanks Wendy and Neil for a good tough run today!
