Brian Keast has heart!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

I was lucky to grow up in Waterloo, Ontario – particularly having many great athletes to look up to.  One of them was Brian Keast, a legend of sort amongst the multisport community.  While I was a junior, he was winning racing around the Ontario circuit — I recall being amazed by how fast he was, and I dreamed that someday I could work myself into the shape and speed of a Brian Keast.

Brian is still an amazing Ironman athlete,…and after undergoing heart bipass surgery last year for a 100% blockage in one of his arteries, his story is nothing short of extraordinarily inspiring.  Here’s a recent article in the Saugeen Times.

quite a stretch!

After swimming this morning, Canada’s water polo team took to the pool.  I noticed one of their pre-swimming stretches was quite something.  Imagine an adductor stretch (image see below), while having a partner standing up on top of your knees (with one foot to each knee),…pushing his partners knees down towards the ground using his body weight.  I couldn’t believe it.  I was impressed I didn’t hear screaming!!

Moving a couch by bike

Moving by Bike

It was moving day yesterday for my brother.  He used his trusty truck bike to move his furniture from his current house to his new home.

I wish I had a truck bike to bike to work today,…there were winds with gusts up to 100km/hour in Calgary today.
