Nike Free Run 5.0 - Dog Friendly Event - Friday, July 19

You know how you go to all these running races and you can't bring your best running partner because they don't allow dogs. Well, we at Peninsula Runners wanted to change that.  Welcome to the Nike Free Run 5.0, dog friendly event. We are holding a fun 5k run at Beaver Lake Dog Park on Friday July 19th at 6:30pm. It's a free event, but we are asking for donations that will go to benefit the SPCA. The co-sponsors are Bosley's on Shelbourne and Westshore and Nike. Nike is bringing out a professional photographer and will be taking pictures of owners and their dogs for free.  Nike and Bosely's will also have some amazing prizes to give away for owners and dogs. It's going to be a fun event for everyone! Even if you don't have a dog, come on down and join in on the fun.

Strongman Training at BDHQ2

BDHQ2 is the proud owner of a brand new yoke!  What's a yoke you say? 

According to the dictionary:
A yoke is a wooden beam, normally used between a pair of oxen or other animals to enable them to pull together on a load when working in pairs, as oxen usually do; some yokes are fitted to individual animals. There are several types of yoke, used in different cultures, and for different types of oxen. A pair of oxen may be called a yoke of oxen, and yoke is also a verb, as in "to yoke a pair of oxen". Other animals that may be yoked include horses, mules, donkeys and water buffalo.

In this case, you are the ox.  A common peice of equipment in Strongman competitions.  BDHQ2 is now the only gym in Victoria with one. 


James got a second new toy for BDHQ2...The Strongman Log!!
