Josh's ITU World Championship

Hi all,

Big news!

This past October, I came second in the Overdrive Duathlon in Bowmanville.  While second may not be first, I qualified for a spot on Team Canada.  Yup, me.  Team Canada, eh?  I'll be representing the Maple Leaf in Fyn, Denmark at the 2018 ITU Multisport World Championships  Standard Distance Duathlon July 6 2018.

Qualifying wasn't the start.  I followed a rigorous TrainerRoad  training plan.   And now that I'm on my way to Worlds, my training has ramped up even more.

10+ hours a week spread across 4 rides, 4 runs (in the snow) and 3 swims and 1 strength session (not in the snow). You can follow my pain by clicking my training log on Strava .  

Unfortunately, Team Canada is 100% self-funded.  Translation:  I must cover all my travel expenses (me + bike), race fees , team fees , training and equipment.  Competing as an amature athlete without funding is as challenging as the training.

Any contributions, no matter the size, will go a long way to helping me have a successfull performance at Worlds!


note: If you just want my delicious home-brew that's ok too (see rewards)
