Race Recap: 5K Foam Fest Canada – St. Bruno, Quebec

By |September 13th, 2016|

Every now and again we have to participate in the ‘fun’ events to find our inner child. We decided to head to the south shore a few hours from our home to 5K Foam Fest Canada to bring in the fun for the holiday weekend. While the US version of the event has come and gone the Canada series continues to hold strong. 5K Foam Fest was held at the St. Bruno Ski Resort in St. Bruno de Montarville, Quebec. This resort has easy access to the local highway and has an elevation of approx. 525 feet spread out over 50 acres.

Race Recap: Tough Mudder Whistler

By |August 5th, 2016|

This was mine and hub’s second year of tackling the course at Tough Mudder in Whistler, B.C. Last year we went into this mostly unprepared and paid for it by being sore for many days afterwards. The bruising last year was epic, and although I was proud of my bruises, I wanted to see if I could be better on course this year.

I was super excited about BattleFrog Series coming to British Columbia, as it was going to be the first time it came to western Canada. If my memory serves me correctly, I had signed up for this in September / October of 2016.

Race Recap: Warrior Dash Toronto, Ontario 2016

By |June 11th, 2016|

Years ago, Warrior Dash was my first dip into OCR, I felt obliged to try it again four years and 92 races later. It was a super-hot day and in hindsight, perhaps, I should have postponed participating but as we continue to race our obsession sometimes takes over our better judgement. The race was held at the Mohawk Racetrack outside of Toronto, Canada and provided a flat, fast course.

We decided to register for the XMan series and see what all the hype was about. We had heard that they provided a well-organized event with some creative obstacles to challenge us in the three key areas: strength, agility and speed.

Ignite the Night Snowshoe Race – Race Recap

By |January 22nd, 2016|

As the rain poured down and temperatures reached a balmy 6 degrees, we were a little hesitant if the snow would suffice for the 2nd annual Dion Ignite the Night Snowshoe Race. We packed a variety of outer wear and hit the road heading east about 90 minutes. We were excited that we were finally going to meet some of our fellow racers from online forums and this was a central meeting point that worked for 20 of us from Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston and Montreal.
