Chen and I have new running shoes, so we have that going for us...and it's nice! Being two relatively heavier guys and putting the amount of time we do on the track, we tend to demolish our flatts quicker than the average 150 pound track athlete. While were on the note of packing lets show you how decathletes pack and what we go through having to compete in 10 events, from the shoes to the clothing we go through. #packinglikeadecathlete
Other than that not much has changed as we head overseas for 20 days, the competition will be followed by a nice visit to Ireland. Chen's big sister lives there, so we will check out the sites and see how we can leave a little bit of Canadian flair on the country side!
As we head off for our last Decathlon of the year, we would like to thank the Coaches who helped us along the way to some great performances (James, Ryan, Lou, Jeff) and all our therapists your help has kept us able to compete this long! Lets finish this season off on a strong note, got nothing to lose.
