Thank You Drew


I am going to pause for a moment and thank my husband Drew for creating this blog (and teaching me how to use it).  I am not sure how many spouses out there would be as supportive as he has been.  Drew has never complained when the alarm goes off at 5:00 in the morning, or when I get home late in the evening, leaving him to feed the kids. 

Drew has been to every event I have entered, and has been my own personal paparazzi. He listens with enthusiasm when I babble on about each new workout, and every new goal I reach.  I must bore him to tears, but so far he has never shown it. 

Drew and me in at the Welland 1/2 Iron

On the days when I feel like skipping a workout, he is there encouraging me, pushing me (sometimes literally), out the door.  He would say to me “you wont regret doing the work out”, and he has been right 100% of the time. 

Last summer I bought him a road bike so that he could come cycling with me and my crazy cycling friends. Well, what a natural. He climbs the hills like he has been training for years.  Our rides are long (usually 120k - 160k) but he never complains, even when he’s bonking. 

Training for three sports is time consuming, training for a full Iron (I’m told) will be nuts! I realize I am embarking on a selfish adventure and I am in awe of this man and his willingness to ride the rollercoaster with me.  

I love you Drew.
