Welcome to 2013! This is an exciting year ahead for LBT. Athletes had great success in 2012 – PB’s for many LBT athletes, first time IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 finishes for some and many laughs and socials. We had a lot of fun riding on weekends all summer – supporting each other – cheering for each other and accomplishing goals. It was also a huge year with the Olympics – I did the CTV Olympic commentary for the men’s and women’s marathon and the men’s and women’s marathon swimming (10 km open water). That was a huge rush for me and interesting learning the stories of these international athletes and “running” with them in London! It was also a busy year with CBC since I did the commentary for several ITU World Championship Series events. 2012 was a quite a year – we were either at races coaching, working and cheering or doing television commentary or doing some motivational speaking or actively coaching on 6 hr rides and long runs and swims! Busy but a blast!
Now onto 2013! This year, our Success Camps return to Clermont in February, March and April. We are also including a race weekend at the San Juan IRONMAN 70.3 so that we can actually help athletes with the pre-race prep which is AS important as the months of training for the event. Mental preparation is the missing link for so many athletes and this race weekend “camp” will fill that void in an athlete’s training program that they can take with them all season long.
Personally, I am healthy and injury free so I might get myself on the start line of a few events just for fun. But more importantly, I want to help our LBT athletes and others reach and surpass their goals with smiles on their faces. I am still super active swimming, biking and running but usually fitting that routine into the confines of 5-8 am so that I can get down to work in my office for the rest of the day! Yes, I am a weekend warrior like most people. Sport is a huge part of me and just because racing is no longer my career, training is still my passion – I just do it with a lot less intensity! Four years ago, I couldn’t imagine swimming less than 3000 m but now, I enjoy just getting in a quick 1500m for fun and to stretch! Fitness is my morning cup of coffee!
Have a wonderful spring and I will catch you at the races. Stay safe – keep smiling!
Follow your passion – have a goal and share it with others!
