Since I have moved to Oakville it seems I am always 10 min early to work so I thought I would do a blog. Kona was on the weekend and I have to give a serious shout out to Rinny for a crazy race at the Worlds. A 2:56 off the bike is silly..haha I just got an email from her and even with a 2nd finish is still talking trash with me! This mean there is no way in hell I will post anything higher then a 2:56 at the Marathon in a couple weeks!

Work has been a bit crazy but clients are working hard so it makes it fun with the weather constantly turning from good to worse. Today I will be taking off training and going out on a course (Golf Course) Serious match today!!

Have a great day and stay warm!

Thanksgiving Day 10km Race Report

What a day to race. The weather is turning quickly and it was a solid 7 degrees out this morning. Shannon was a trooper and held strong to watch me suffer through a 10km!

James Loaring, Mike Hay, Mark Linsmen and I (Team Allied Forces) showed up to throw it down. When we arrived, we also noticed that Speed River and Tayler Milne...1500m Olympian had come to join in the festivities. We found out that they were getting ready for the 10km race next week and were just doing a tempo run...33km tempo that is.

My goal was to hold strong and run a tempo. 35min is my tempo..haha I went out and put down a fast few km's. It was a fun course, which had 5 1/2 laps of Exhibition Park. I knew I was in marathon training because I couldn't go faster or slower just consistent. I felt solid right up through the finish line and just came in under 36! Not too shabby.

2 weeks till the Marathon!
