What's in Store for 2018?

Well 2018 has arrived and I can't wait for the snow to be gone so I can ride my bike. Over the past few weeks I have been planning my 2018 race season and it looks like it is going to be a very exciting year.

2017 had it's up's and down's as you can read in my previous blog post here:

Going for a run
So lets get right into the excitement of 2018. To start the New Year off I have been on the trainer, hitting the weight's lot's and I am super focused on my training for the next 3 months.

I also will be continuing to work with Andrew Watson of AWI Coaching as my coach. Andrew has been focusing on getting me to my peak performance and making me improve every inch of the way. I have been coached by Andrew Watson for the past 4 years and I can't thank him enough for helping me grow as an athlete and competitor in the sport.

Looking at my race schedule it will be a busy year with some bigger events on the list. The big events that I am gearing for this coming year are,

NUE Mohican 100 mile, Ohio USA**

El Bandito 140 km Gravel Race, Ontario**

Eager Beaver 100 mile Gravel Race, Ontario**

Canadian Marathon Championships, Quebec**

I also will be competing in the Ontario Cup Series and Ontario XC Marathon Series**.
Competing in some new events and locations this season will be very exciting and I can't wait.

My sponsor list keeps growing as I will be bringing some new sponsors on board this year. I am still looking for sponsors to help me with my racing. If you are reading this and are interested in sponsoring me you can contact me thru my social media accounts listed below.

As the 2018 year gets going and I am planing the season, I can guarantee you it is going to be a fun year. I can't wait for the season to arrive and with that it's time to for me to go train, take care everyone!
