My race day routine

Dessert, any kind.
I started doing triathlons/duathlons/running because
I wanted to get into better shape, so I just started to run, doing a couple trail races and a 10k. Bought a road bike and the rest was history.
I have only done 5 races in my short career so far. I really enjoyed the Bellingham Duathlon. Nice scenery on the run and bike, only $30 for a well-run race.
The race I've never done but always wanted to
Escape from Alcatraz.
Grew up playing sports, hockey and golf are my main focus, but have played most sports at a competitive level.
Favourite place to train
Hill training on the bike
When not training I like to
Relax, watch football.
What drives me to compete
Every race I do gives me the chance at setting new personal bests. I may not win, but I always want to be faster.
What motivates me to train
Constant improvement, and preparation for the next event. Every hour I train I know will lead to better race performance.
Favourite things to do when not training
Spending time with my family.
Most exhilarating triathlon moment
Finishing my first race (North Vancouver Triathlon) under my goal time.
What I'd like to accomplish in triathlon over the next 5 years
Finish in top 3 for aged category race. Sprint and Olympic.
Person I look up to and admire the most in the sport is
Not to suck up, but Tommy. I have known him for a while, and I wouldn't be training the way I am without him.
This weekend I'm going to
Hang out in Vancouver with my wife and daughter, watch some football, and of course train.
Favourite Chuck Norris fact
Beneath his beard there is no chin, only another fist.
Morning person or night owl
