How To Approach an Ultra or Ironman

Jordan Rapp quote sums it up!

This Jordan Rapp quote sums it up.
"It's about the process. It doesn't matter what you do tomorrow and it doesn't matter what you did yesterday. It's about today, and making today count. That's especially true in training, but it's the same mentality that I carry into racing. Focus on the task at hand, not on the finish line, or the next part of the race, but what it is that is right there in front of you in the moment."

Random Photos From Our Recent Prince Edward Island Trip to Check Out The University.

This is the kitchen inside a dorm room at UPEI. It's bigger than The Boy's whole room at Dalhousie.We were amazed at the size of the dorm rooms here.

The Bathroom. Are we in a hotel? No,same dorm room.

The bedroom of the dorm room.

A little reading area...in the bedroom. They also come with T.V.s and telephones.

Amazing Cafeteria

The Common Lounge Area with Gas Fireplace.

The Lecture Hall

The Rugby Field where The Girl hopes to play for UPEI.

Artificial Turf Soccer Field.Great facilities,and only 4500 students.
2 lbs. of clams at Lobster on the Wharf.

Highly Recommended.

The very good burger at The Pilot House. rated it a 7/10.

Boat Pilot, that is.

Kate and William were in town the day after we left, and there was "Royal Fever" everywhere.

This is the location of the French Capital when France claimed PEI. It was called Port-La-Joie (Pronounced Port Lah Jwah). The English took PEI over  after the Treaty of Paris in 1763 and set up a new capital city across the river in Charlottetown. Port-La-Joie is now just an empty field.

One of the famous red roads of PEI. That used to be a wooden pier at the end of the road.

Lighthouse #1

Lighthouse # 2

Crabby's Shack at the dock in Wood Islands.

Shaeffer having a snooze.

The Ferry to Newfoundland and New Brunswick comes in right beside Crabby's.

Lighthouse # 3

# 4

They call them rivers, but it's an inlet from the ocean. That's Charlottetown on the other side. We could hear "The Tragically Hip " playing at the Canada Day celebrations.The Girl is not a fan.


New boardwalk at Greenwich Beach. Last time we were here, 17 years ago, it was undeveloped, only known to the locals.

Wanna go swimming? Water temp in the Atlantic is 12˚C. Brrrrrr.
Great weather the whole trip. The Girl says she's going to UPEI, and I can see why. Very friendly people and good food.Small classes and huge dorm rooms.

I'm gonna try the 4 hour run again tomorrow. It's supposed to hit 100˚F. I'll start outside, but might be stuck inside on the treadmill if it gets too hot.
