Looking forward to getting to the house Friday

It gives me something to write about! Time at the house is far more interesting than my less than stellar efforts at training. In my two week holiday from school I had great aspirations of doing more running. I have have done that a little, but only with thanks to my wife who has taken me to Kitsilano Community Centre Gym and I ran on the treadmill. I did manage to knock off 17 km in my four visits!
I attempted to blog my training last year for the Kelowna Apple Triathlon
as I had challenged a couple of friends to join me in the tri...they both bailed. Here is that blog.

I believe training has 2 simple components:
      • It must become a habit forming practice
      • Your point of reference for personal fitness is the point where you began (not what you used to weigh in college)

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!
