Saturday Maximum

On the way in @ about 10:30am Saturday morning

Finally a good spring day and tried to take full advantage.  Headed into Vancouver for a seawall, Stanley park and Jericho run.  It was my longest run before the May 2nd BMO marathon, and there was no better way to get ready for this one then to run most of the course.  Tons of people out running and riding so it wasn’t hard to get into the right frame of mind.

Headed out past lost lagoon, around Stanley Park, down through False Creek and Athletes Village and past Granville Island.  Took a straight route through Kits and all the way down Jericho Beach til the hill to UBC.  Turned it around straight back to the city with the amazing view all the way back over Burrard Street Bridge and back to my truck parked at second beach pool.    Finished off the day with a bike for two quick loops around Stanley park roadway.

Run was about 3:10 minutes, with 40 mintue bike.

Used mapmyrun.com for milage, telling me about 38 km,  I think its closer to 40 with a the trail winding but overal a pretty solid route for training.  Here is a link-hopefully it works or an over view.
