the training

I am a non trainer.
In the past I would do triathlons. I would swim a little. I would ride a little. I would run more, but that is because it was easier to do.

Now I ride my bike to work. I am training beyond any imaginative scope I have ever done for events like these! This week I have ridden 'the bike' to work everyday. It is 14k there and back. Last year for the Kelowna Triathlon I rode my bike 180km in preparation for the event. The 90 plus minute ride will attest to that.

It is a bit exhilarating riding your bike to work; however, motorcyclists are way cooler...they acknowledge other riders going in the opposite direction. Cyclists don't.
I smile...but only 1/10 people return the smile!

I see great training accumulations happening this year!

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
