Sun Run Report

So last weekend was the long-awaited Team Trask Sun Run, although between traveling and catching up at work I have not posted until now. But here it is, the full Sun Run report, with photos!

It is pretty cramped behind the starting gates, but at least there is music.

We have been planning this since Christmas.  David had a hip replacement in June, and he has been working hard on rehabilitation since then. He’s done a lot of physio and now he is back to teaching yoga and back to working with Vancouver School Board. In with all of that, he also found time to train for the Sun Run. Nice work!

We took a yoga break on the Burrard Street Bridge. Big spoon-little spoon!

David has done a lot of yoga over the last decade, and it was fun to stop in the middle of the street/bridge to do some yoga. Family traffic-interrupting yoga!

It was fun to all walk together past the bands and ocean and Stanley Park and my Vancouver house. It was pretty fun to visit and chat along the way, since we took a relaxed pace.

Elizabeth and I finished too!

There is quite a business sprouted up around selling commemorative photos, videos, certificates, etc.  The results are online, but unfortunately David’s timing chip didn’t work and his official results weren’t captured.  🙁

Luckily there were some orange slices left for us at BC Place when we got there.

  1. This is such a great post!

    Thank you kindly, Catherine, for organizing, encouraging, and posting such awesome workouts for training! Sun run was soooo fun!

  2. I had lots of fun. I was optimistic that I could do it but was willing to take breaks or go home if it came to that. Catherine wore casual footwear and a skirt. I never felt like I was at the sun run except for the beginning, after that it was like a walking tour of vancouver with auntie ya ya. As a family event it was perfect to have so many participants. Kinoi and Koa had not done it before so it was extra fun for them to get to travel in middle of some major streets of the city unobstructed. I enjoyed seeing Elizabeth and Catherine together and thought too bad Bridget couldn’t come because of her health but as it turns out she is doing quite well these days and likely can do something like this! Team Trask even bigger next year. Catherine, Elizabeth, Kinoi, Koa thank you all so much for cheering me on and believing I could do it like it ain’t nothin but a thang.
