    Race Report: St. John Ambulance 5K
  • With the Calgary 70.3 behind me I am definitely feeling the physical and mental shift of having my A race for this year behind me.  Don’t get me wrong…I still have a few races on my horizon (the Subaru Banff Olympic Triathlon on September 12th, possibly the Harvest Half Marathon on October 3rd, the Banff… [Continue Reading]

Ironman Musings: Boulder 2016

Ironman Boulder in 2016

There is something about Ironman…  You push your body, mind and spirit for up to 17 hours through a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike ride followed by a full marathon of 26.2-miles (42.2 km).  The day is a roller coaster and it will at times feel incredibly hard…but the run towards the finish line […]

Race Report: Chinook Olympic Triathlon

2015 Chinook Triathlon Festival Sylvan Lake Alberta

IM Calgary 2015 Race Report

I woke up at 4 am on race day and puttered around the house getting ready…showering, putting on sunscreen and attempting to choke down breakfast (one hard boiled egg and two slices of dry toast).  On the drive down to Auburn Bay I managed to eat a banana and sip on some water.  I got […]

Pre-Race: Ironman 70.3 Calgary

IMG_3092

The days leading up to the race probably weren’t the most ideal.  I had a short timeline on a project due at work that kept me at the office for some long days.  I was stressed and tired, and not able to fit in my final few taper workouts.  Luckily I was able to get […]
