VLOG 34 – Ironman Lake Placid Race Recap

On Sunday I raced my first professional Ironman, Ironman Lake Placid. This is a race I’ve been wanting to do for a couple years. I’ve been to the area to train for the past 3 years and really enjoy it there. Race day turned out to be a very good day for me, I was happy with my splits across the board.

VLOG 32 – Gravenhurst Olympic Triathlon Race Report

On Saturday I raced the Skechers MultiSport Canada Gravenhurst Olympic Distance Triathlon. This race has been one I’ve wanted to do for a couple years and it didn’t disappoint. It’s a unique swim that has you shuttled to the middle of the lake by steamship and you get to swim back to shore. That’s followed by a challenging, but very fun bike course. And the race finish with a run that you may believe gains elevation in both directions. This race has shot up to the top of my list of favourite local races. I had a strong race across all 3 splits and was happy to get my second win on the MultiSport Canada Series this year.

VLOG 29 – WELLAND LC TRI RACE RECAP

VLOG 29 – WELLAND LC TRI RACE RECAP

Sunday I raced the first race in the Skechers MultiSport Canada Series, the Welland Long Course Triathlon. It was a 2k swim, 56k bike, 15k run. I had a solid swim, my first race in my new Dare2Tri Challenge 4Speed Wetsuit, and then my legs were completely flat on the bike. I was dreading the run, but when I slipped on my Skechers GoMeb Razors, my legs came to life. I felt light and my pace came easy. I was able to run may way into the lead 8k into the run, and held on to the finish. I’m really excited to be a MultiSport Canada Ambassador this year, and I’ll be racing the Kingston Long Course Tri after Lake Placid.

VLOG 27 – My First Pro Race Eagleman 70.3

VLOG 27 – My First Pro Race Eagleman 70.3

My virgin pro race is done and dusted. I did Ironman Eagleman 70.3 in Maryland over the weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was really happy with the race I put together. It wasn’t a perfect race, but I was happy with my swim (my first non-wetsuit race – a big thanks to Matt Shanks for letting me borrow his swim skin), a solid bike where I got my first experience riding in a group, and then a steady run. Up next is Mutlisport Canada Welland Long Course.

VLOG 26 – Milton Sprint Triathlon

VLOG 26 – Milton Sprint Triathlon

I knocked off some rust and started up my triathlon season at the Milton Sprint Triathlon over the weekend. It was a good opportunity for me to go through the motions of a race before Eagleman next weekend. I had a bit less in the tank for the race than I anticipated and my legs felt flat, but I was happy with my effort and ultimately it served it’s purpose of dusting off the cobwebs.

VLOG 16 – Around the Bay Race Recap

VLOG 16 – Around the Bay Race Recap

I raced Around the Bay on the weekend. Race went really well. I had a plan to take it easier than I normally would through 10k and then pick it up from there. I feel like I was able to nail the plan and I finished strong in 1:56:38. Also, really happy ‘the hill’ was back this year. Lisa had a great race too, finishing in 2:06:39. Thanks to Robyn for the finish video, and congrats on your first 5k!
