Hi‬
 Frogger friends and supporters!This past weekend, I was on Hornby Island, soaking up the sunshine, listening to live music at the Hornby Island Music Festival, eating blackberries, riding my bike, standup paddleboarding, visiting with an amazing friend, and of course, training for the #Frogger15.My Sunday run was prescribed as follows:On soft surface preferably, trail etc. Heart rate zone 1 to 2.5. (Maximum HR zone 2.5) Check cadence several times (21+ right foot strikes in 15 seconds). 85 Ė 95 RPM. Relax, easy pace, check form. The goal here is to run SLOWLY without stopping for the entire duration. Enjoy the run. Walk to cool down and stretch afterwards.I started my run in Little Tribune Bay, moved onto the multi-use trail (thanks to the Hornby Island Residents and Ratepayers Association), and then ran towards Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre and Provincial Park where I explored the beaches and amenities before looping back towards Little Trib and my beauty accommodations. As Iíve mentioned before, I like to change it up when I run, and Iím a curious kid, so running and exploring together helps keep me interested and enjoying the activity. And because Iím a curious kid who gets to study leisure, recreation, and tourism, I started to wonder about running tourism. Sure enough, itís a thing. If youíre interested in learning more, here are a few websites that offer running tours and/or tourism information for runners (Iím not recommending any specifically, just suggesting where to start looking): http://www.gorunningtours.com/,http://www.tourismvictoria.com/Ö/3-Great-Running-JoggÖ/2600/
http://www.tourismkamloops.com/runninghttp://running.competitor.com/Ö/one-business-blends-runningÖ

This is how it starts for me, an inspiration, I start to explore a topic, next thing I know, an hour has passed and Iíve learned just enough about an idea to get my mind reeling with possibilities. If youíve participated in a running tour, Iíd love to hear about it.

And if youíre thinking about participating in the ‪#‎Frogger15‬ in‪#‎CampbellRiver‬, I highly encourage it! I am happy to answer any questions you may have, and if I canít answer it, Iíll take it to the Frogger committee and/or Greenways Land Trust and weíll find your answer.Thanks for reading! Happy #running! Laurel
