my former Neighbour

My former neighbor in Victoria started off his season with a bang - NICE WORK SQW! I am trying to make sure that I can watch SQW win worlds in Vancouver and of course I will be watching every second of the Olympic Triathlon race on CBC.

Looks like I finally have my first job as a commercial float pilot. I am very excited about the new job. It's very similar to the day that Reebok wanted to hire me as one of their pro triathletes. I have a grin from ear to ear. I start mid-May. More on the new job after my road trip this weekend.

For the past few years I have been pacing part of the Boston and New York City marathon with PowerBar. It's a great gig. I get to hang out with the great crew from PowerBar and run part of the marathon. I am teaming up with my buddy Tim Deboom for Boston. He gets 13.1 and I get 13.1. It doesn't matter which leg I get - running Boston is a huge treat. One of these days I need to do a marathon for time. To see what I can do. The itch to train seriously for something is finally coming back. It's taken almost 2 years and a ton of extra pounds of my body to want to get back in shape.

Anyway, look for Tim and I at the PowerBar booth Saturday-Sunday then out on the race course Monday.

Also, GOOD LUCK TO DESIREE at the US Women's Marathon trials Sunday in Boston!
