What now?

So, next weekend, I will run my marathon. To be honest, it will be just to get it out of the way now. Run for survival, hopefully in 5 hours or less. You are more than welcome to come run some or all of it with me!

On May 22nd, I am running the Woody’s Marathon, half marathon in Red Deer, and the weekend following, I am volunteering for the Calgary Marathon weekend.

After that. I don’t know what to do. Maybe you can tell me. In a radius of about 200 kms from Calgary, preferably with decent camping, I am available to go and run races! Do you recommend anything?

Local Runners: What races do you like, and why?

Race Directors: Are you interested in some blog love here? I am not opposed to sponsored races, in return for writing some lead up stories as well as (obviously) the race report, complete with pics and videos. I can also create race badges to put on this here blog…

Product Makers: I can use and advertise your products (if I like them) here and at races, let me know if you are interested.

I would probably prefer not to run another marathon this year, but anything less than that distance, and I am game. Trail, road, mountains, prairies, it doesn’t really matter to me, I just love to race!

That’s all, Happy Easter to everyone!


  1. I'm just looking forward to getting the marathon over with so I can get on with training for the things I'm really looking forward to (like the 12-hour adventure race in September...that should be Waaaaayyyy easier than a marathon, right? :))

  2. Check out that egg!!

    The barefoot running is going well! Thanks again for everything!

  3. Maybe you can do some barefoot bull riding at Calgary Days.

  4. Hi Neil...first, thanks for the encouragement. I wanted to respond to your comment about advil. You're right to be surprised, this PT clinic is not pro advil and I was surprised too. So, good call :) ...the reason she actually suggested it, is because the inflammation was not reducing at all after 2 weeks. There was still swelling and pain and she reluctantly decided it was time to give ibuprofen a try. At least for a few days. It is definitely helping, but I'm still not allowed to run at all. Just wanted to let you know :)

  5. What is the picture from?

    Good luck in your marathon next week!

    If you ever feel like coming to Minnesota, I can suggest lots of races for you to do. :)

  6. Freaking
    Nice huevos.
