Ran the Mississauga half marathon today -- my first ever marathon of any kind. I finished at 2:09:13. A fantastic day and a great personal achievement. Thanks to James Peden of Canadian CrossFit for helping me train for this event.
I'm a 41 year old male (6' 1", 195 lbs) who joined Oakville's Canadian CrossFit in September 2008; and I started working out at Burlington's CrossFit Connection in September 2009. Aside from some jogging and yoga I've never really been athletic; weight-training and gymnastics are completely new to me. CrossFit is an opportunity for me to increase my fitness and push myself to new levels.
This blog is where I record the details of my workouts, track my progress and note my PRs.
