Race Hunting!

Okay so I’m still on a high from last weekend’s race!! It was so incredible!! However I’ve encountered a new problem…finding winter races to enter!

OMG….24hrs after Thanksgiving (yes it was Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend) and I still feel stuffed like a turkey!

A nice 10 degree crisp fall day, a new route that included beautiful scenery and hills, fall leaves beginning to […]
