Hump Day Adventure April 11 2018

It’s hump day and it’s time to make sure you’ve got you’re weekend adventure planned. I’ll run a half marathon on the trail and take my kids hiking this weekend. Tomorrow I get to take a road running friend of mine out on his first trail run.

Here is some other stuff to inspire you to get out and adventure.

That is a hilarious video from REI for April fools. Still both my wife and I said: But there is something to the idea. I wonder if someone will do anything like it that’s not a joke.

Yup close to my heart because I’m Canadian. The only draw back, in my mind, to a few is that they’re popular so I’ll have to share the trail too much.

This is a pretty fun video about riding bikes in the snow. I was never into the steep stuff like they have now, but it always makes me smile.

Climbing Motivation: Alex Puccio (part 1) – YouTube

Cool quick video to get you training as the warmer weather comes in my neck of the woods. Yup I’ve been missing climbing these last few years with kids. Mountain running is fun, but I want to get on more rock in my runs.
