Beginner Blogger

I am new to this blogging business.  There is a lot more to it than I thought from following others blogs.  They make it look so easy!  The main reason I decided to start a blog is because I want a 'trail' of my journey to the Alps this year.  My friend Sarah MacLeod and I signed up for the Gore-Tex TransAlpine Run which is an 8 day stage race in Europe that will take place in September of this year.

It will be one of my greatest challenges to date and I really just wanted a place to feel inspired to write my story as we prepare for this huge goal.  I hope that anyone following will also draw inspiation and/or getting some training tips, gear advice, laughs or realize that if I can do something like this, than anyone can!  I also have regreat that I didn't blog last year when my husband and I trained and completed the BC Bike Race.  I know I could have drawn off some of my posts from that experience and it's surprizing how quickly we forget the little things along the way.

So although I don't have anything more exciting to write than this today (well, unless any of you are parents and can appreciate how excited Trent and I are to go to our sons school dance tonight) I will use this as a positive start!


  1. Awesome Rene, Glad to hear you are doing this. It will be great to read about your adventures. Hopefully Grace and I can join you for a few of them.

  2. I love that your blogging! I'm totally looking forward to following your journey and stealing inspiration from it. And I want to hear about the good, bad, and the really ugly! ;)
