A few Tweets, several emails and some coercive text messages and the North Shore trail running community came out of there burrows and bungalows to beat the Hares up BCMC, this past Sunday.
Vancouver trail running community, you are one of a kind. How many other groups of people can you think of that would come out to a lung burning, heart testing, beating of an event under total self-motivation and call it a good time? Not too many, I'd say.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who made it out on Sunday morning. It wasn't an actual race but the desire to maintain position was enough to surge a good number of you to setting a BCMC personal best.
Although the event was done under the guise of my 40th birthday, I'm sincerely thrilled to have had the community together atop Grouse under blue skies and some balmy temperatures. It's always great to laugh, breath hard and drink coffee with good community.
Until next time...
