Surprise!

Well it has been a few weeks since our last post (my bad) but lots has happened.  Firstly, it is with great pleasure that I get to finally say we have officially moved outdoors!  Ottawa decided to rid itself of its winter shenanigans, skip spring all together and jump right into 30 degree summer weather...OK!  See yeah later Dome, I'm done with you for now.

(working on our starts last Tuesday..great extension!)


Secondly, because of his stellar performance down in Tucson, Patty has become somewhat of a local celebrity garnering acknowledgement from all over including a local newspaper..article can be found at:

Pat is now just killing workouts waiting until the Pan Am Cup in Ottawa on June 1st to unleash himself once again.  This meet (thanks to Lions organizers and other local contributors) is looking to become an amazing meet and if you're in the Ottawa area June 1/2 you should definitely come check it out!  Plenty of talented athletes will be running around Mooney's Bay (including these guys) so why not?
Check out this photo collage put together by Coach Ry Row to reminisce on last year and get excited for this year:


Now because it has been so long since our last post, I get to surprise everyone with a decathlon!  I am currently in Charlottesville, Virginia ready to take on another dec.  After arriving yesterday the weather is quite warm, very humid, with some showers happening earlier.  All in all it is a very pleasant place with a gorgeous campus and facilities.  I was definitely excited to check out the track for our pre-comp workout and it didn't disappoint.  The track is beautiful and will be one of the few decs I get to do where all events are completed within the stadium!
  
So I'll see you on the flip side..I'd say follow along with the results but I think the University of Virginia is having some difficulties themselves putting together a functional site.  The meet runs Friday and Saturday starting at 3pm tomorrow and 2pm on Saturday.  Doesn't hurt to check anyways if you have some time to kill..not 100% sure but try:

Apologies for the delayed post, I promise to be more diligent in the future and don't forget to send me your good vibes!  See yeah later!
