Calgary Challenge Reverse-Order International Triathlon

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

So far, we’ve got a bit of interest in the Calgary Challenge Triathlon,…but I know of so many more people who should do it! If you’re sitting on the fence as to whether you want to participate,..just sign up will you!!!

Kyle and I have a bet riding on who wins between us – the loser makes a five-course meal for the winner and each of our significant others. The loser is to be allowed no assistance in the dinner prep by his wife or fiance.

I told Kyle that I’ll be happy to bring the wine and beer,…he told me that I was much too generous if I was making dinner already. We shall see,…we shall see…I’m getting hungry already just thinking about beating him.

We can legitimately call it an international competition now, since we have a competitor coming all the way from Ireland, James Curran,…watch him to put on a spectacle.

List of entrants thus far:
Chris Hooper
Kelly O’Toole
Dal Cain
James Curran
Johnny White
Kyle Marcotte
Scott Curry
