Welcome Ceremony Surprise

Well folks, it was a crazy day! The alarm company called me at 4:30am because a staff forgot to log in – I never really got back to sleep, so I’m tired…. but stuff happens.  I went out and picked up my Wife and son at Faragut State Park where they were visiting Hilary’s Sister…

Registration IMCDA Complete

Well.. we registered today, myself and one of the athletes I coach (Mark). I have to say, it was a little odd to see the low numbers.  A few years ago there are hundreds and hundreds of athletes present on the Thursday, this year….. a handful.  Sad for the last race at this venue, but…

Hard to believe it all

It has been a LONG time since I blogged….  I have thought about it a lot….  nearly written……  have posted on Facebook a lot…. but just not sat down and wrote out the state of things. To be honest… the time since the crash has been a whirlwind of things…..  some awful, some difficult, some…

It’s been so long…..

Hey everyone It has been so long since I made a blog post, it’s hard to know where to even begin! Right now, well… It is 6:30am in Holland….We are here on a family reunion type of trip for my Wife’s family.  WE haven’t been here in 8 years, they haven’t met Kaden yet, and with…

The reality is……

The reality is …….that is really hard to be broken, but I remain grateful and happy all the time. Lots of people are surprised by that, but honestly it doesn’t occur to me to be anything other than grateful. I’m grateful for the guys that stayed by my side on that bridge and kept me…

Good days and not so good days

As a rule lately, I have been very grateful, and very happy about any small improvement in my condition. I am very clear that there are many people who are way worse off than I am, and so I am very thankful for all that I have. And let’s be clear, it is a lot….

Scott’s ultraman race report

Scott's ultraman race report

This is late in coming, and it almost feels like a world away, so it is actually almost hard to remember all the details, and yet everything is perfectly clear.  It’s crazy how much things can change in a heartbeat. Arriving in Kona on November 5, I was pretty excited to race. It was a…

Thankful far beyond words….

Well folks, I am here to tell you that the last few weeks have been one hell of a ride. Arriving back in Canada, I contacted my doctor immediately and said that I would like to have more x-rays done to find out why my arm was so damn sore.  My shoulder was also crazy…
