This is where Brooke and I ran yesterday. Trail running in the forest that neighbors University of British Columbia here in Vancouver.
It’s so easy to get caught in the same old routes day in and day out. The seawall around the inlets here is a beautiful trail to run on a daily basis, but after doing it for the past year almost exclusively, it’s lost a little of its luster.
So exploring a part of the city, another beautiful part of the city, and getting some miles in under the canopy of the forest, it reminded me that running isn’t something I have to do, it’s something I do because I love it.
This is the scrapbook of my life and journey from morbidly obese and depressed to finding health and happiness. I have lost 120 pounds, run eight marathons, completed two Ironmans, and gone from depressed recluse to motivational speaker. Read more about me and this blog here. Or start from the beginning.
