Not at the limit of 75 yet

This was the last group photo I took from BHC pool.  This was one of the largest group swims we had.  Still not quite close to the 75 person capacity of the pool.

Interesting Story

A while ago I posted on the blog the story about Ben who took on the challenge of losing weight and getting in shape. You can see the blog post below.

Well Ken past the link to his brother in-law and now he is doing a similar weight loss challenge. You can follow him on the following site.

Just goes to show that you never know where inspiration will come from.
Happy Training and Good Luck to Dion!

Confederation Park Relay

This was a fun race! The best part was the start. After the kids run we were all in a group talking etc...and then someone said...Hey when does the race start...we turn and see everyone running away. This was time for Ian (leg 1 runner) to make up some ground. :) If you have never done this race it really is quite fun. High intensity for 4 Km with a few good hills and 2 creek crossings. We had perfect running conditions for the race and everyone had a great time. Next year we are thinking of putting in the No limits kids in the full relay.

In the photo we have Ben (leg 3) Todd (leg 2) and Ian (Leg 1).
