A couple pictures from the HPR/Cops for Cancer Spinathon last Friday.
The team managed to raise $1200 for the Tour de Rock in just over 4 hours.
Since returning from Kona things have gone well.
Our return journey was a bit of a gong show. I kind of forgot that we lived on an Island and booked our return flight into Seattle at 9:40pm. Unfortunately, this meant there was no way we were going to get back up to Vancouver for the last ferry. When Kev and I finally rolled up to the ferry terminal at 2am it didn't really make sense to get a hotel room so we did the old sleep in the vehicle until the first ferry at 7am.
Since being back, Jasper and I have been able to get in the bulk of our training together and that has been great. Having your friend and training partner living 2 blocks away is very convenient. There are still a couple of tough days to get through, but knowing that I will be back on the plane heading to Kona again next Wednesday makes these big days a bit easier to complete. The weather here has been amazing as well. Training this time of year in Victoria is incredible. There is definitely that feeling of fall in the air, but there hasn't been a cloud in the sky the past couple of days. Perfect!!
Time to rest.
