Better late than never! I had plans for writing this post last week, but being away on vacation had me tied up relaxing and enjoying special moments with family… So now here I am finally writing my race review over a week later, not to worry I jotted down some notes to help me remember. The Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon, my 4th half marathon but the first for my boyfriend, which of course made it a special run.
Having done both the Color Me Rad 2014 at the Cloverdale Rodeo grounds, and the Color Me Rad 2015 in Holland Park Surrey, it feels natural to compare the two events. Both had strengths and weaknesses, I will compare a few areas and pick a winner for each.
If you too participated in either of these events I would love to hear your comments.
Over the Victoria Day long weekend I took my step kids to the Cloverdale Rodeo. They had never attended this event so it was a new adventure, which I was thrilled to share with them.
This is a notoriously expensive outing so I did my research. I got their ride passes at IGA the day before for $29 rather than the $40 gate price. I was also able to save on parking by arriving early and taking advantage of a church fundraiser, $5 parking. Whoot whoot! That’s a $27 savings
For those that don’t know me personally, I am extremely organized that comes with the Type “A” personality. Making lists is a passion of mine, I have been known to make lists, to make lists. (terrible I know.)
One of the lists I started in 2014 was a Seasonal To-Do-List, I used it to make sure life didn’t get in the way, and we remembered to have fun! It was such a success I am doing it again this year.
So here is my Summer of 2015 To-Do-List, follow me on Instagram for updates, and stay tuned for my end of summer blog recap.
