On Sunday, Mike and I headed out to explore Red Earth Creek, Pharoah Creek and go up and over Healy Pass out to Sunshine. We knew there would be lots of post-holing, but damn! There was a lot more than we expected. We post-holed for about 3km up to the pass and then about the same down the other side.
Run time: 7 hours for 34km!?!

Last Friday, after seeing Jill off at the start line, Keith and I headed to Yoho for a little adventure of our own. The Yoho Bike and Run. Forgive all of the vanity shots, it looks like I got a whole lot of shots of US and none of the great scenery with out us in it! We had a fun day and did our share of post-holing through the snow. We ran via Laughing Falls to Yoho Glacier, Twin Falls Campground, Twin Falls Chalet, Marpole Lake/Connector and out. We were the only people out there. So awesome.
Ride time: 45 mintutes up, 20 minutes down.
Run time: 3.5 hours and 20+ km.
