More Vancouver 100 Training

Dave, Marla, myself and Neil at the top of Black Mountain. 
Craig took the photo! 
Saturday we went from the Hollyburn ski area to the top of Black Mountain (and back again) on the V 100 route. The snow has completely disappeared from 1 week ago. It's gone...all gone! We have had several years V100 outings post holing through the snow which is so scary! I am embracing the "no snow year"! Yah! 
The terrain is slow going and rough. Here is an old bridge that has danger signs on it not to cross. Of course some Team Dodgy members could not resist the bridge crossing. Filming it to boot to capture the demise of their dodgy friend. 
Here's Neil and I crossing the creek - the sensible way.  There are plenty of creek crossings Iike this on this section of the 100kms. 
The Birdman Dave and his friend the Whiskey Jack eating right out of his hand. They love peanut butter sandwiches. 
Sunday Neil, Fergus (dog) and myself went back out on the V100 route for 2 hours. Here's Fergus on the Seymour Grind. He flew up this rough steep climb. A strong trail dog determined to get to the top! 
Looking forward to a week of spinning, running, biking, TRX and of course the upcoming weekend trail outings!
