MOMAR Race Recap 2009!

Hey there folks!
I jus got out of the shower and have a few minutes to spare before I head up to the mountain to celebrate with 360 other MOMAR racers!!

ANOTHER EPIC RACE.
Now that the bar has been set this spring in Squamish (we trekked the Chief!) I was expecting some serious elevation in Cumby and that is exactly what we got.

MOMAR Weekend!


MOMAR IS COMING TO CUMBERLAND TOMORROW!! GET READY TO ROCK THE VILLAGE!

The final race of the 2009 MOMAR adventure racing series is tomorrow, Saturday and starts at 9am at the Cumberland Campground on Comox Lake. Come on out for some great Saturday morning entertainment! It will be sunny and there will be 360 racers running paddling and biking around Cumberland like crazy chickens to provide hours of entertainment:)


This is an example of what sort of entertainment you might see:
Wet and Wild Mystery Events...
Familiar Faces...
Fabulous racing outfits...

Dorky facial expressions and many embarrasing moments...
GOOD LUCK to all those ELM racers tackling the Cumberland MOMAR!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
WOOTWOOT!

Bits and Bites... I'm Baaaaack!

video

HELLO!

I am back from the beach, back to work & real life and my flip flops are still wet (seriously!). We had an amazing trip and were stoked to see the sun still shining with force in the Comox Valley upon our return. I love September!

I just sent out an e-update with a few important tidbits- but in case you didn't receive it here is a summary:

ELM Fall Programs Start NEXT Week: I have bumped back the deadline for our fall classes by one week (with the exception of Baby Bootcamp which starts this Thursday) which means you still have time to register! You now have until this Thursday, September 23rd to sign up for fall training with ELM in the following programs:

  • Womens Off Road Trail Running: Mondays 9:30am
  • Womens Learn to Run: Tuesdays 5:30pm
  • Fitness Bootcamp: M/W/F evening & T/TH sunrise

Go to www.elmhealth.com or drop off your registration forms at Extreme Runners 436 5th st, Courtenay!

COUGAR STALKING AT THE COMOX LAKE DAM!

Thursday September 10th around 6pm on the Peckerhead trail one of our Adventure Running groups (9 people) was followed by a cat for approximately 20 minutes before they were finally able to scare it off into the bush. Review the recommended procedures for cat encounters, buddy up, take a cell phone and you can continue to enjoy this wonderful trail network!!

MOMAR THIS WEEKEND!

That's right folks, the 10th year anniversary of the MOMAR adventure racing series takes place this Saturday in our very own backyard! Come on out and enjoy the show as 360 racers hit the beach at 9am in Cumberland:) Go to the MOMAR website and look up the Cumberland race to find out where the best spots to view the race will be. The weather looks great!

After being a beach bum for the past 2 weeks I am MORE than tapered for this race...my recent training has consisted of beach walking, looking at cool shells, watching the sunset and drinking baileys every day. I am more than ready...I am beach bum ready!

Should be interesting to say the least...

Have a great week!

Time to turn off the computer, unplug the phone and my brain and head north for our annual surf trip:) The office will be closed until Friday the 18th of September but registration is ongoing for all of our Fall Fitness Adventures! Don't delay if you plan on joining us for some fantastic outdoor workouts this fall!

I will be contacting all registered participants after the program deadline on Friday September 18th when I have confirmed registration numbers...stay tuned!


SO...


I'd like to tell you about the crazy steep trail run that Liz took me on this Tuesday up Red Roter...






I'd love to share all the details of 'the best ride ever' on Wednesday night with the Rats...




And I would be stoked to show you all the great photos from Thursday night Adventure Running (
