Joe’s Team

This past Saturday I had the privilege of participating in the 10th Annual Joe’s Team Race in support of cancer research at Princess Margaret Hospital.  It was a spectacular day to run, bike and swim with sunny skies, 20° temperature and no humidity to speak of!

Yours truly turned in a decent time finishing 3rdin the 50+ category (and yes there were more than 3 people participating!). I still have lots to learn in riding a road bike – the dude who won averaged 35km/hour – over 20%faster than me!  Well, there is always next year.

The more important thing was a lot of great friends and colleagues sponsored me to the tune of over $18,000 – also good for 3rd place on the individual fundraising totem pole. Joe’s Team raised close to $1 million on the day and over $10 million the past 10 years.  Joe Finlay was an incredible individual – if you are looking for inspiration or to get involved next year, please click here to find out more.


Finally,a special thank you to Wai and Lori at the Adelaide Club in Toronto who have helped me feel like I am 30-something again physically.

Cheers and I hope you are enjoying the summer!
