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."

Last Post on British Columbia-Fishing With The Big Guy

It was Portages 50th , and her "little" brother decided to take us fishing. Very nice of him, I'm sure he burned a couple hundred bucks worth of gas. Anyhow, we set out from Nanaimo and headed north towards Nanoose. It was cool to see the area we want to live from the water looking in. On our way out, we set 2 crab traps and 4 prawn traps. We would collect them late afternoon, after fishing and having lunch.
The Queen of Oak Bay. Portage and me came over from Vancouver ob it once.

Portage's 50th birthday lunch. Thanks, Bev and Charlie!

We had Kayaked here a few years ago.

First prawn trap had about 20.

Ethan checking for "keepers".

That's a keeper!

We caught about 200 large prawns.

That's a big one.


Dungeness Crab

Sea lice. They love the cat-food we use for prawn bait.

The haul

We cleaned them on the boat and fired the heads and guts over board. The circle of life.....

Later that night, Portage had her birthday cake. One candle for every 10 years.

What a great kid.
Anyhow. when we arrived home, the girl, who had been in North Carolina at the same time we were in B.C., decided to buy her old dad a gift.Six gifts, actually. How well does she know me?
  Anyhow, that's it for the holiday, more eating,drinking,relaxing etc. followed, then an easy flight home.
  Next up, some beautiful storms in Toronto, and no excuses for the North Country 50 miler!
