Hustle, Hustle, and more Hustle

Time flies when you are busy running, baking and playing with kids.  That could best describe the month of January as I cannot believe is already over, I have noticed that life has both sped up and slowed down all at the same time.  Again, allow me to explain… In an effort to be more productive I needed to go back and follow a schedule for the week with each […]

I Am NOT A Morning Person

In a quick follow up to yesterday’s post, Austin’s birthday turned out to be pretty good.  Yes there was a lot of running around, and I thoroughly enjoyed taking him toy shopping and then coming home and making a Spider-Man cake that he has requested. It was awesome! So this morning I had set my alarm for 4:45 am with the intentions of getting a run and swim in before […]

100 Day Run Challenge

So for the record, I’m slightly nuts. In preparation for the Ironman 70.3 race this summer, I knew I would have to increase my cardio level to another level.  I have spent the last few months in the gym working on my overall strength but running, well I would always consider it to be the weakest of the three disciplines of triathlon.  Swim, bike and ugh, run… Today marked day […]

Ironman Muskoka 70.3 ~ July 8, 2018

I have written a bit about of the sport of triathlon since I’ve started this blog and there certainly will be more posts about it in the future, including today!  I have just registered myself for next summer’s Ironman race in Huntsville, Ontario at the beginning of July.  It is perhaps the biggest race in Ontario next year and will attract the world’s top athletes based on the beauty and […]

Triathlon, How It Saved My Life

There have been several life altering events in my past, and beyond family type things (marriage, children, divorce…) the sport of Triathlon has had the biggest impact for sure.  The story starts in October of 2005 when my first wife and I separated, I was an inactive, unhealthy, unhappy 238 pound man.  It was New Year’s Eve I had been sitting in a bubble bath reflecting on life and just […]
