Race Report: Spartan Sprint, Ski Brimacombe 2018

Today I officially became a Spartan! After a year of running and 6-months of #CrossFit training, the two went hand in hand for this obstacle course race. I finished my first ever @Spartan “SPRINT” in 1:21:24. 140/2445 overall, 121/1358 Male, 15/201 age group. This was about 7.7KM where we had to tackle 20-ish obstacles. From climbing walls, running through trails, carrying sandbags, many steep hills, crawling through mud, and jumping through fire…I never thought I’d ever take part in one of these. But I did it! And am totally proud. Now with the SPRINT in the books…tomorrow I get to do it all over again in the “SUPER” at @SpartanRaceCanada, which is twice the distance and twice the fun. Yay me #AROO (the only part that sucked literally was when my shoe got stuck in the mud, cost me 2 mins lmao) #StrongerAsOne #HardWorkPaysOff#SpartanToronto #SpartanRaceToronto#SpartanRaceOntario #SpartanRace #OCR#OCRathlete #THISIS30


New Bike Day: TREK Domane SL5

#NewBikeDay – Say hello to Diana. After many months of research, conversations with friends and cyclists, I finally picked up my first road bike (or any bike for that matter)! Thanks to Dan and the experts at @trekbikes / @trekstoreaurora for setting me up the the #Trek #DomaneSL5. She’s a true carbon beauty ?????. I’m absolutely sure she’s going to whip my ass into shape and give me bruises and scratches ?. Can’t wait to give her a full ride! #BetterWithBikes #ShowYourStripes#Trek #TrekBikes #THISIS30


Swimming for the first time in 10 years…

Today was special to me. I went for a proper swim for the first time in about ten years! And I wasn’t too shabby at all. I was very fortunate to have a former competitive swimmer @jamesyboy101 spot me as well. Immediately after swimming I did a brutal #WOD consisting of Overhead Snatches with squats and then the met con of:

400m run
25 box jumps #24
25 Wall Balls #20

Race Report: Barrie Half-Marathon 2018

What an incredible day. Happy to have completed the @HondaWaterfrontRunin #BarrieON! It was as good weather as any runner could wish for. Warm with a slight overcast. And yes, the waterfront was an absolute joy to run along with 1300 other inspiring athletes. I’m extremely pleased to announce I PRed my Half with a Chip Time of 1:52.56! That’s about 4 mins off my STWM Half…AND I weigh 18 lbs MORE from lean muscle mass from #CrossFit@crossfitnewmarketcentral! A big congrats and thanks to my good friend @attherockshow for your hospitality and finishing your hometown race. #HondaWaterFrontRun #BarrieHalf #Barrie#SupportLocalCharity #HardWorkPaysOff#DoitForTheBanana #THISIS30
