Business or Pleasure?

Any time you fly internationally, you have to fill out customs forms. On the form, there is a question that asks what the main purpose of your trip is…business or pleasure. I checked the business box. The nice gentlemen at customs needed an explanation, but after a minute of explaining that running around in spandex and racing in some of the most beautiful places in the world was my job, he let me go.

Yesterday as I was riding through Cancun, I couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear. What a lucky guy I am. I am healthy, get to travel the world to beautiful place to do what I love. The honest truth is that I take great pleasure in what I do…so I guess I’m here for business and pleasure.

Tomorrow is one of those days at the office that you look forward to and are anxious about at the same time. My whole body knows that tomorrow is going to bring immense pain, fatigues, unbearable heat and provide me with a springboard where I alone must push myself to my limits. I am very excited to race tomorrow and I assure you, once that gun goes, it’s business time!

Hillary sent me this quote which has become my mantra for tomorrows race.

“Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man’s doing but my own.

I am the force.

I can clear any obstacle before me,

or I can be lost in the maze.

My Choice;

My Responsibility;

Win or lose…

I hold the key to my destiny!” -Elaine Maxwell

If you want to follow me tomorrow, my race starts at 6am Calgary time. You can track the race on the following websites;

Gold Medal Plates Dinner

Last night was the Gold Medal Plates dinner in Calgary. There are 7 stops across Canada for this wonderful event which raises money for Canadian Olympic athletes and exhibits the culinary expertise of local chefs as well as the best wine in the country. The event started in 2004 and I have had the opportunity to be involved since 2005. Since it’s conception, Gold Medal Plates has raised over 2.8 Million dollars for Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Wednesday night I went down for a few hours to help set up for the event and then last night it was put on a suit and enjoy yourself with immaculate food and great conversation.

This year I was fortunate enough to be the athlete representative at Black Hills Estate Winery. Black Hills is not only one of the top vineyards in Canada (arguably the world), but they are also a long time supporter of Gold Medal Plates. Several of the wines exhibited at the event were graciously donated by Black Hills, which everyone appreciated. Everyone at the table was very friendly and eager to chat. I couldn’t have asked for a better table or more enjoyable conversation that ranged from athletics to careers to parties gone bad at Heritage Park. I would like to thank again Black Hills for purchasing a table last night and for their continued support of Canadian athletes. My table last night really made me feel supported and knowing there is that type of support for Canadian Athletes is very special.

Last night’s event makes me very optimistic about 2010 in Vancouver. Go Canada Go!
