Halloween!

Always turns out to be one of the top ten best nights of the year, and I always make it a point to rock out a last minute costume idea. Here is a pic of me and holly on this most festive of nights along with a couple other goodies to make you smile.

double time!

Sentinel Pass
Rather then recap the deviation from my usual routine over the last month I figured I will give you the 1000 word version. Early October saw some wicked trips to the mountains for some long day hikes with the boy's. Up over Sentinel Pass for a good 7 hour kicker followed up a couple days later with a hike up Ribbon Creek to feel the onset of winter.

Then it was off to the land of gluten. Wheat, wheat and more wheat rolling through the hills of Italy. Through Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Venice and Rome.

Now its time to get back to business, and with the help of my new online strength coach I will get my grove back and have that washboard stomach that I have been after.

Great day with the Kid's at Calgary Montessori School
Since the end of my season I have struggled with focus. After 11 months chasing a carrot I found it difficult to be satisfied in simply relishing in what I had achieved. The prospect of several unknowns surrounding my racing and training in the 2011 season left me eating cookies and cream ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While enjoying the variety in my diet I began to formulate my plan for 2011 and now its time to start putting the pieces in place.


In 2011 I will be training in Victoria with a elite group of guys that I will look to for mad guidance and knowledge that I will use to develop my game at the next level. My number one goal leading up to that period is to build my fitness and strength over the next couple of months so that I have a solid platform in January. As I start to put the word out regarding Victoria I have found great support and guidance from my inner circle. I have been talking strategy and tactics with many great people that have offered sound advice  and support. The next few months in Calgary will be busy and with time I plan to have my checklist complete.
