Kyla, one of my best friends lives in Victoria, BC. So when I had signed up for SeaWheeze this year I mentioned to her that I could extend my trip and come see a part of her world and she jumped all over it. We talked about spending time in Tofino before showing me around Victoria and plans were made.
I met Kyla in 2012 at the Olympia in Vegas. We were both sponsored by the same supplement company and we fell into friendship then. We mentioned Tofino plans to our Magnum teammates Holly & Heidi and they were game to join us. Sunday morning after the SeaWheeze half marathon I met Heidi & Holly at the Ferry to Victoria and we were on our way. I hadn’t seen Holly (on the left in the picture below) since the Olympia in Sept 2012 and I met Heidi (on the right) for the first time. Thankfully to social media I feel like I spend a portion of my day with them every day!
Kyla picked us up and drove our cute selves all the way to Tofino. We stopped on the Malahat for my first view of Vancouver Island. My breath stopped. I am always amazed by views of oceans & mountains so this was a double whammy.
