Bike 100 Miles in one shot

Status: Complete
started: June 2004
ended: July 2008
duration: took 1492 days to complete

When Dad was going to sign up for his cross-canada trip I got this idea in my head. Unfortunately due to a bout with Mononucleosis I couldn't do it with him that summer. I don't mean I can't put a foot down from the bike but I do mean: no lunch breaks!

My first century ride was out to Whitecourt in the summer of 2007. I took a half hour lunch break after 150 kms. I then did a few more century rides in preparation for SeatoSea... all of them taking more than a 5 minute break at some point during the ride. On the sea to sea bike trip in the summer of 2008 I rode 175 miles but there wasn't a continuous 100 miles in there... I rode 112 miles with a lunch break halfway later the same week. The next century included a stop at the Mormon temple after 105 kms. The century after that included a lunch break in Steamboat Springs Colorado. The one after that included 11500 feet of climbing and there was no way I could do it without getting off the bike and chowing down on food and taking a break. The next century ride included a 10 minute break for a flat tyre change and then a 15 minute break in a lawn chair eating watermelon... doesn't count. Okay... if the point hasn't been made already I wasn't going to check this off the "list" until I actually did it without a break which I proceeded to do the very next day. I did a splash and dash twice to fill up water bottles but neither stop was more than 3 minutes I'd estimate and bam! 100 miles were in the bag within 5 hours. Check that one off the list!

Go off a waterfall in a Kayak

I'm not sure if this'll ever happen, My legs no longer fit in any kayaks that I've ever seen. I did go off the Sauders Ledge in a canoe.... it's kinda like a waterfall!

Win a Race

Status: Complete
started: February 1997
ended: October 2008
duration: took 4248 days to complete

Dad is buying me a Porsche when I win a gold medal at the Olympics. That would pretty much be the best race to win ever. I think it's more likely I could win something obscure, it's gotta be a bonified race to count though.

My first win occurred in October of 2007 at the Tuffest3 event with my team of Tom McGrath and Leanne Haney. Our team nabbed the overall but I was beaten on the bike leg by about a minute. The chance came the next year in October of 2008 to defend the title and we no longer had things sewn up by the strength of our runners, other teams were going to be close. It was likely going to come down to the cyclists and I pulled through giving our team a 1 minute lead with the fastest bike split of the day. Our team held on for the win. Another lifetime goal complete!
