Enjoy Life!

 We are definitely making this summer count! We've camped a couple of times - both 5 nights each. We did Syracuse 70.3 in June. We've gotten a lot of swim, ride and run in. We are enjoying life the way we want and that's pretty cool. Up top has nothing to do with summer but Logan's hair reminds me of a 90s techno pop group, maybe Platinum Blonde or Spandau Ballet - pretty awesome.
 While we were up north Sara did the Gravenhurst Olympic. Very cool race when you head out on a steamship to the middle of the lake, jump off and basically head straight back towards shore. Also the Bolton boys - Kevin, Dave, Dave, Craig, and Doug - were racing as well. They always bring some laughs! Despite having an inner ear issue, Sara had a pretty good day.

 As the day went on it got more sunny and began heating up. I'm becoming quite the action sports photographer! Here's Sara powering back to transition. She averaged over 31.5k for the 40k - a good ride.
 Sara heading out at the first km in the run. From here you pretty much climb to the turn and some good downhills on the return. Sara said she felt good and enjoyed seeing the boys out on the run.
 Back at camp it was time to indulge. I like indulging. I managed to get a 80k ride into Algonquin followed by a 21k run the next day over the Muskoka 70.3 course with the TCOB crew.

 Next up was a work trip to Thunder Bay. Thunder Bay is beautiful during the summer. After work I headed to a local lake area that is just over 5km for a loop. I did a couple of loops to combine with my 2km swim at lunch. The rapids above feed into the lake.

 Here's the lake.

 The dam at the end of the lake and the rapids heading toward Lake Superior.

 Whenever I'm in Thunder Bay I always visit the Terry Fox memorial marking the spot where he had to end his Marathon of Hope due to cancer. It's moving. The memorial is well done and the view to Lake Superior is amazing. If you're ever there definitely check it out.

 Hero, Legend, Great Canadian.
