Mercedes-Benz Classic Mile

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

This race happened last weekend in Cambridge, Ontario.   The winner wins a new Mercedes-Benz,…not a bad prize.  It’s definitely a worthwhile watch:

Big weekend for racing (Edmonton World Cup and Ironman Coeur d’Alene)

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

I wish my best to fellow Canadians in these events.  Notably Jazz, Tom, and Darren are racing IM CDA, from the comfort of my home I’ll be watching this race with envy.  Best to Jordan Brydan in the world cup!

I had a solid swim, easy aerobic set with the Dinos this morning:
