What’s up with the Orca wetsuit?

I sent out a photo of my Orca wetsuit, and got a pretty lame response, which started a big bunch of Twitter and Facebook posts encouraging Orca to reconsider their response.  So far nothing has happened, and I think Orca wants more info – so here it is. I have always raced in Orca wetsuits….

Things are going GREAT (and they’re only getting better)

LOTS going on these days!!!! The 7-11 plan is WORKING!  Getting up around 7, and being in bed around 11 has really seemed to calmed down my adrenal stress and helped my body re-regulate better.  It’s not perfect, but it has been a MAJOR improvement! I am still not at the weight I would like,…

Well that was fun!!!

I guess I have been pretty blog silent for a while……. In no particular order: 3 months worth of footage for the film was lost when my GoPro fell off a truck bumper mid June I have had to deal with some staff issues that were a total nightmare, (thank God that’s over!) my adrenals…

It’s broken……can’t be fixed.

Been a rough 30 days.  Crazy rough.  When I got through May, I figured the craziness would slow down and I could focus on training and fundraising for the movie.  You see….as May moves along I finish coaching Run Clinic, Masters Swim, and Saturday cycling classes are done.  The Woody’s Marathon is on the long…

Game on!

Hey there everyone! Well….the marathon went well.  My fears were just that: fears.  the ‘sore throat’ I had Saturday is just this new allergy I have developed this year as a result of the other challenges. The marathon, for all intents and purposes, was fine.  I ran a bit too fast in the first 10kms…

The Roller Coaster

Well folks…..it has been a fascinating month or so since I last wrote a blog post…… What can I say….It has been a journey. The film funding was a total bust.  Yes….I am very grateful for the $1700 raised, but the goal was $50,000.  Which was reduced from the longer film dream goal of $110,000….

This too shall pass

I have been struggling a LOT lately. My health: With crazy work stress, the economy being a challenge, training hard, taking on way too much, making sure I have time to be a Dad and a Husband, Business Trips, Starting the year with Influenza……I just kept getting sick.  Not really a cold….just run down.  No…

Feeling better and Registered

I am in Fort St John at my Brother’s place, visiting my family.  The past week has been pretty stressful, worried about what is going on with my body, some challenging things at work, and trying to be a good Daddy when I am too tired to get out of bed. I have to say…

Something is wrong….

I have been sick off and on for 3 weeks now……  I reduce training for a day or so, start up again and after a few solid days, maybe 3-4, I feel sick again.  Last week on Thursday I was at a business course all day, then taught classes in the evening and I had…

Hot, Cold, Spring, Winter: Shut up and Train Hard.

This week has seen me running in shorts and a t-shirt, and full winter battle gear, fearing for my ankles at every ‘run by feel’ step, basement rides, pool swims, and runs that were wildly different every day this week. It’s not so bad……. Ran a 10k Time Trial on Friday after a pretty tough…
