Last Days in LA

Wednesday, 28 April 2010 by

Wow. I just realized that according to this blog, I am still training pre-worlds in LA a month ago. I guess its time for an update. This one might take a few posts though so be ready. I last left off with training going really well in LA (as training on a real track almost

Livin’ in LA

Saturday, 27 February 2010 by

I’ve been slacking a bit with these blog updates. I’ve been living in LA for 20 days now, so I guess its time for me to get writing! First off, I’ve gotta say how awesome our apartment is. We’re living in a gated community, with a huge pool and hot tub to relax in after

Beijing World Cup

First off, I’d like to say thank you to Teriyaki Experience for helping me attend this World Cup. Secondly, I’d like to apologize for not updating my blog sooner, but I’d just like to point out that it wasn’t entirely my fault. Apparently, blogs, along with youtube and facebook are all banned in China. Oh,

Beijing World Cup Prep

I can’t believe I’ve been in LA for 4 days and now is the first chance I’ve gotten to sit down and keep you guys informed of whats going on. I flew into LAX on Saturday night, after a bit of drama with my overweight bags. I was picked up by Stephane, and got settled

Cali Update 4

Wednesday, 16 December 2009 by

I’m back home now, buried in the textbooks preparing for my 4 exams this week. I figured I’d take a quick break to let everyone know how the last day of racing went in Cali. Preparation was as usual, this time with a bit later start to the racing at 2:30. I did a quick

Cali Update 3

Friday, 11 December 2009 by

Today was the individual sprints with both myself and Travis Smith representing Canada. I’ve been concentrating quite a bit on my start for team sprint, so I hadn’t done much speed work in the build up to this race. I was very happy to qualify tenth in the 200m with a time of 10.51. This gave

Cali Update 2

Friday, 11 December 2009 by

I’ve been here in this ‘mild’ (30 degree) Colombian weather for 6 days, and I’m getting a bit anxious to do some racing. We’ve done quite a bit of training on the track and I’m feeling ready and prepared to go fast in the next couple days. Tomorrow is the individual sprints, where myself and

Cali Update 1

Saturday, 05 December 2009 by

Day one of my trip to Cali isn’t even over and it’s already been a pretty interesting trip. I met up with the BC crew at Pearson International and we proceeded to check in to the first leg of my flight (the second leg of theirs) to Miami International. This flight went off without a

Match Sprint

Thursday, 26 November 2009 by

Today we got to do a bit of technical match sprinting. It was a ton of fun, and something we don’t get the chance to do very often. Here’s a video of me and Travis racing. We’re tied 1-1 after the days races.
