Our Fay Tosdevin took time out from her holiday in Canada to squeeze in a race. So in between hiking and bear spotting, Fay took part in the Canmore Half Marathon.
“I’ve never felt so under prepared and nervous for a race” fretted Fay the day before the event.
Set in the Rocky Mountains this beautiful course ran through the city of Canmore, before meandering its way through woodland, along the Bow River before ascending the winding mountain paths. Recent forest fires had caused a hazy mist, but it cleared to to reveal some wonderful vistas at the top of the mountain.
“We’d done so much hiking, I decided to take it easy and just enjoy the views”
And what views they were.
She set herself a target of 2hrs 30mins, but Fay smashed it, coming in in 2hrs 23.
