BMO Vancouver Marathon


With Mel and Ron at the Vancouver Marathon Expo

I'm pleased to confirm that yesterday's BMO Vancouver Marathon went really well. Despite feeling quite unwell in the days before the race, I'd come too far to not run and I turned in a new PB of 3 hours 31 (12 minutes inside my previous best).

It was a fantastic occasion and it felt so great to have so many of my family around me. Despite the cold and heavy rain, Melanie and Ron finished their first half marathon in a superb 2 hours 18 minutes. Full details to follow in this week's blog.
