A few updates

It's been a bit of a stressful week with my last day of work being tomorrow.  The good thing is I have a few carpentry jobs lined up over the next couple weeks so I'm going to go with that for now.  If you need anything built though please let me know!!

This past weekend was a busy one with lots of racing happening all over the place!  Devin was down south, Aron was in Winnipeg, Josh was in North Bay.  Everyone had great races but I'd just like to highlight Aron who was racing the first Jr National race of the season and finished 13th!  He had a great race and coming 13th in the country for 16-19 year olds and only being 16 is amazing.  Unfortunately he was just outside of the cut off of the top 8 to make it to the Canada Summer Games but it's nothing to hang your head about.
Myself and a couple others were racing in a swim meet over the weekend at the long course championships and I managed to win the 1500.  Still not a stellar time but I'll take it!
On Tuesday a bunch of us raced in the first Twilight Track meet of the season and I'm really happy with my race as my run has been the one of the three I've been doing the least of trying not to bring back any old injuries until I can get some more of the weight off but I came 4th in the race and I beat my goal time going in by 22 seconds so I was a happy camper!

I know you can't actually see me in the picture but I haven't found any other pictures yet of the race.  You can see about half my head to the right of the girl in the pink socks and I'm running in 5th place at this point and Jordano is in 2nd.

This weekend a bunch of us are off to Leamington for a triathlon however I'm only coaching this weekend and not racing.  Hudson will be doing his second ever triathlon so that will be exciting!  Here's a picture of Hudson the other night all ready to race and giving his best intimidating face :)
