ah yes - winter. cold enough for ya? i would love to complain but the reality is that here in calgary we have had (till this week) quite a reasonalbly mild fall and winter (till this week). i am terrified to see my gas bill next month as i dont think my furnace has shut off for 5 days straight! i guess we were due though as its been a really long time since we have had such a nasty cold snap. not that i am a diligent reader of the farmers almanac - but those guys were predicting a very cold winter for us this year. smart-ass-farmer-weathermen-told-you-so's...

i am 3 weeks into my new challenge - being coached for racing - and so far so good. i was expecting to have to fight through some of my own issues - specifically - issues relating to be told what to do (i dont do so well with authority) and scheduling. i am notorious for letting time slip away by avoiding my responsibilities (blogging is a function of this) and i am an expert at getting what i want when i want it. well, i am happy to report that i am actually starting to like not having control over my training and am starting to feel the positive effects of the workouts i am doing. small victories can add up to huge opportunities - thats what i am hoping for.

see you at the finish line!
