  • Gorge waterway run

    17 APR 2024 · This morning's 5k run promised scenic views of the Waterway and Gorge, under the sunny skies of Esquimalt with no rain in sight. The waterfront's vibrant energy propelled me forward, past the bustling neighborhood towards the Selkirk Trestle, my halfway point. With the finish line in sight, I looked forward to hopping on my e-bike for a smooth ride home.

  • The Rolston Trail Loop

    14 APR 2024 · So, good morning everyone, Carlos here, taking you on an audio adventure in stereo. Currently on the Rolston Trail next to Rolston Creek, about to cross a small bridge. I can see some chalk markings from the Hash House Harriers. The trail is mostly packed dirt with a little asphalt section near a townhouse subdivision by Rithet’s Bog. It's one of those places where they dictate what colour you can paint your garage door, very neighborhood-concept-oriented. Gotta unzip my jacket a bit to stay cool. Today's run will have long sections of ambient sound. I'll be heading to Majorca at the end of the month with friends for hiking, biking, running, and swimming. Invited my brother Pablo and Bill and friend Alan. Now, I'll enjoy the sounds of Rithet’s Bog as I continue my run.

  • The Dove Run

    9 APR 2024 · I start my run on the humpback rail trail, feeling good and sharing updates on my heart rate and pace. I take breaks to walk and reflect, mentioning personal anecdotes like a wiggly tooth and memories of running with a friend. Along the way, I observe familiar landmarks and share thoughts on various topics, from neighborhood changes to environmental policies like carbon taxes. Despite distractions like traffic and noise, I enjoy the sunny weather and the familiarity of the route. As I approach the end of my run, I bid farewell to my audience, noting that the remainder of the journey is downhill.

  • Harrop trail going up up up!

    5 APR 2024 · Okay, so I take a right followed by a sharp left, and then I'm on ‘Harrop Trail’ all the way up to the top. There's one of those trees knees, and this is where I turn up. Up the side of the mountain, there are about four or five trails. One goes that way, one goes this way; they all get around various obstacles. I could go back that way, but I'll carry on this way. I'm pretty sure they're all going to take me up the mountain of Joy. Time 14 minutes, distance 1.70 km, average heart rate 115. Yeah, this is the way I always used to go, so may the hiking begin above Zone three.

  • Mount Tolmie Run

    24 MAR 2024 · As I approach Gordon Head Road, I prepare to record today's trail video for my Mount Tolmie episode, opting to use my phone for now and later switching to my point and shoot camera.

Despite the noisy surroundings, I continue my run, marvelling at the views from the top of Mount Tolmie before making my way back down, navigating through traffic and reflecting on heart rate training and camera angles along the way.(14:XX)
