It's been a great summer. I've managed to squeeze a lot in, maximize my 3 day weekends and run, run, run on more beautiful trails than you can imagine. I sure do love my backyard.

I've spent some quality time on trails with lots of new and old running friends as well. I remember my first year in Banff, I spent the entire summer running these Epic Long Runs, all by my lonesome. It was good stuff, but it was lonely and at times, a little scary too. Things sure have changed. I've got lots of good buddies to run with now and my hubby, who is no longer chubby, is also a trail runner. Time flys when you're having fun and Keith and I have just celebrated our 6th year of living in Banff.

It's all still one big adventure. I love that word, adventure. It's all things good to me. Fun, challenge, spontaneity all rolled in to one. On that note, I'm off to Italy tomorrow for One Big Adventure. It's time for Tor des Geants! It's going to be new territory for me. With 200 Miles of Fun and a ridiculous-off-the-scale amount of elevation gain and descent, it's too scary and intimidating to even ponder seriously. So, what do you do if you're Leslie? You focus on the adventure, the scenery, the people and the place. And hope for the best. Afterall, it's all one big adventure and adventures are so much fun!
