Well, they say it's good to save the "best for last" and that seems to be what happened for me at Kelowna. Weather was great until race day when it got cooler and threatened rain in the AM. We were 1 degree from not being able to use wetsuits, but fortunately they were allowed. BEAUTIFUL venue, course, volunteers and I really liked the size of the event. Well organized and really no glitches. I ran a great race, for me. Posted a PB at 3:10:00 in the olympic distance. Felt GREAT.

Canmore was next in July. To put it bluntly, it sucked. TOUGH race with lots of hills and the weather did not cooperate at all. Water was very cold and then sprinkled as you got on your bike. Was hard to get dry at all... Regressed in my time but was determined to finish and have a great time doing it. Again, enjoyed the friendship of Brad Johns and his friends and family. Brad and I started the race out together - he just finished a little a head of me. My family was there, though and was the BEST. Love you guys.
Have bounced back fairly well from reinjuring my knee this Spring. That's really what caused me to stop blogging... I admit, I was depressed for a while... Went to see the Dr., decided to get through the season and see how it goes. Fortunately, it has consistently gotton better...

Good news is I have learned to be much more relaxed about most things in life - something that I hope will prolong my life well into the future! I guess I can thank a great wife and a wonderful family and kids for a better perspective.
This blog is primarily for me and my personal challenge to keep personally well rounded and heathly. That hasn't always been a priority for me in my life and it certainly is a constant struggle.
This blog will help me be accountable to my goals and my life perspective. If others enjoy it, that will just be gravy!
