Hiking from Mexico to Canada

I have done some crazy stuff in my short life.

I flew to Winnipeg for the weekend and ran a marathon.

Then I moved to Penticton and trained for the Ironman Triathlon.

But the craziest thing I have ever done was spend 5 month hiking 4300 kilometres.

Myself and 2 other friends started in San Diego and walked a half-marathon 6 times a week until we got to Manning Park in Canada.

It was crazy but a very memorable adventure!

Other than having to fend off biting ants, killer mosquitos and hungry bears, the toughest thing was managing all the injuries we got.

Many of the concepts I discovered on the long hike, I use today.
I have been asked to do a talk on the hike. I don't present this slideshow very often but next Tuesday I am presenting it at the Chilliwack Library.

Here are the details:

P.S. - The craziest thing I have done was walk from the Mexican Boarder back to Canada. No joke, have a look:
