First Long Run of 2019!

By |

Ellie and I started the building process toward our first major road race of the season, which means one thing: a weekend long run. I am happy to report it wasn’t too bad! The weather was near perfect for a February run, which is quite remarkable considering less than twelve hours later, we had fierce […]

Fascinating Look Into A Professional Triathlete’s Budget

By |

I came across a SUPER interesting (ok I am a nerd) post about income / cost of being a professional triathlete. Professional triathlete Cody Beals, shoutout to Guelph, Ontario, has posted each year of his professional career his income and expenditures on his blog, and it is a really interesting read.

Triathlon isn’t exactly the […]

No matter how light a light beer is, too many beers makes for a bad weigh-in. As usual on this blog, Wednesday is for stat checking! If you would like to contribute and get involved, feel free to leave a comment, create an account and get moving!

Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Tournament Weekend!

Over the weekend, the Pine Riders threw on our skates and competed in the Buffalo Labatt Blue Pond Hockey tournament. The outcome . . . was absolutely less than stellar.

Yes . . . we gave up 87 goals. The Pine Riders went 0-3 on the weekend…

We got absolutely annihilated. To say we were perhaps […]

Should I care about toenails?

By |

Brace yourself for some riveting content, folks: today I want to talk about toenails. Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely hate clipping my toenails. I even hate when others clip my toenails during pedicures. Just typing this makes me cringe with discomfort. Alas, foot care is a necessity, especially for runners.

I know […]

Switching Gears (lol): Training Plan For February

By |

I cracked myself up with the title of today’s post. I’ve been bicycling quite a bit on Zwift over the past six weeks, closing out my first full FTP Build program. With only two workouts to go, it is about that time that Ellie and I are switching gears (get it? like a bike gear?) […]
