Trophies & Links

I finally got my Warrior Dash trophy from the 2012 race in August, but I had to hound them for over 6 months before receiving it. Glad to get it though, I suspect that others not as persistent received nothing.




I went into Landmark Recognition by my place to pick up a couple of medals I had engraved on the same day I picked up my Cactus Club gift card for the Bagel Chase. I told Aleigh there about the Chase, and she asked if I got a trophy for winning it. I told her no because all the funds went to the charity, but she thought I should have one anyway, so we got one made up. It even kind of looks like me! I felt pretty sheepish afterward about making my own trophy, but she was pretty excited about it, and I'd already ordered it, so it was going to get done. It is something I've never done before, a pretty big accomplishment, plus my birthday's in a couple of weeks, so what the hell! With my ego, I might even make it the picture at the top of my blog's home page for a little while! Anyway, here it is.




And here it is head on.



Here's ultra runner Ellie Greenwood's blog and the charity she's running for when she does the Comrades Ultramarathon in South Africa this year:

Another super ultra runner Mel Bos, who won the Walk In The Park 54K in Kamloops last year, has a great blog too. http://dirtbunny1.blogspot.ca/?spref=fb

Very good movie about the Raggae Marathon in December, 2012 in Jamaica: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLk6kI_fH0c&feature=share

And finally a couple of inspiring videos from people who turned their lives around through running:
