The holiday season was wonderful in my house...but now that the "Big" day is in the rear view, it is time to get started. Again...
Within the next day or so...my training program will start once again. Back to basics, and back to the beginning. The new program is a 9 week program from the cool running site. As well...I will get on riding the new trainer I received from my Mom and Sister/Brother-in-law for Christmas! Could not have asked for a better present.
As well, I will be editing...and uploading the newest episode on New Years morning. As a revelation for myself...this year...their will be a serious lack of booze to ring in the new year. The perfect way to start the year off the way that I hope the rest of the year goes. Now, I am not saying I have a drinking problem...I just do not need the empty calories from the drinks that I do have 1-2 times a week. Nothing major...
It really is time...and I need to do this...before it is too late...
One last thing...I will be moving the blog over to the wordpress program...at least for the Podcast information.
Talk to you soon...

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada, Veteran’s Day in the US, and it is a day that to me, seems to be forgotten by our youth. Whose fault is that? Parents, Teachers?
Since I was a little boy, I can remember my parents taking me to the ceremonies every year. It was a family event, rain or shine. My Grandpa (Mom’s Dad), fought in WW2, and was a part of the crew that swept the mines in the waters of Normandy in the days leading up to the war. As I grew up, I used to try and ask him questions about the war, and what sort of things that he saw. He would take a deep breath, and just say death. Then slowly change the subject. I never pushed the subject, as I could tell that it was still tender even after all these years had passed. He never watched war movies, as he felt they glorified what really happened out there. You can not capture that emotion he would say…
Today I remember him…and the sacrifices that he made to serve his country.
I remember those that gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have now. The freedom to run wherever and whenever we want.
Today I remember…and pay my respects.

In this episode we talk about where we are with the training. How Power 90 is going, what is happening with the cross training and how I am sorting out my nutrition.
Remember to pay your respects and show your support on November 11th for Veterans Day and Remembrance Day.
See you out there...
This past weekend was actually a fairly nice one. Now, I am not talking about weather…or getting outside and getting exercise. Actually, not talking about anything fitness related at the moment. This weekend, my wife and I where able to head across the Border to the United States, and enjoy a date. For our anniversary back in October, I bought her and I tickets to go and see the US Tour of – So You Think You Can Dance. It was being held in the Tacoma Dome, just down the I-5, South of Seattle. My wife loves this show…and I have to admit, I did watch it this season, and really enjoyed it. Talk about athletes! Wow…these kids are in shape!
So that was our reason for heading down their…but the nice part was that…it was just us. It has not been just the two of us doing anything in a long…long time. It was nice to be able to talk to each other, with out having to spell out words. To be free to talk about our upcoming Christmas Surprise Vacation to Disneyland. Nice to go shopping…and not have to listen to – “I want this”, “I am hungry”, “Are we there yet?” Just nice to relax…the two of us.
Of course…at the end of the day…we just wanted to see our boy! A bit of a catch 22.
On Sunday morning, I got up a little early…and did the Power 90 program, and then went for a very quick ½ hour bike ride. Stayed seating in the saddle…but rode hard. A very good leg work out.
After that…got the boy…and had a very nice family afternoon!A good weekend!
