#Toronto2015 Pan Am Torch Relay

Pan Am Torch Relay

I’ve have been fortunate in that I was chosen to run in the Pan Am Torch Relay.

Starting May 30 and running through to July 10th, about 3000 participants will move the torch though more than 130 communities. The flame will be lit in Teotihuacan, Mexico and travel by 60+ modes of transportation, least of all by me.

Now I always thought that torch bearing meant running miles or kilometers along a dreary highway until you see the next lonely long distant torch bearer. Ah Ha! Not so! I am running a mere 240 meters up the only hill in my little town. To top it off I will be dropped off by bus there even though my starting point is only a kilometer from my home! Too funny! I guess I just have to hill train to pull this one off!

After I finished chuckling at the absurdity of it, I started to think why I volunteered to do it.

This is my only chance to be a part of an international athletic event of this caliber. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever be good enough to compete with these amazing athletes who will be competing in the Pan Am games. This is my chance to shine!

240 meters up a hill, and I will give it my all!

Happy Days – Storm the Trent!

We had a crazy great time at Storm the Trent this past weekend. You can’t beat that feeling of choking up a lung as you peddle like mad up a rocky, rutted ATV trail! We ended up doing just over 50K of running, cycling and paddling on Saturday. Hot, dusty and a ton of fun, everyone should try this race! Have a look at our slideshow.
