Please pray for the families


This is a part of my job that always has to be in the back of my mind, as I go about my day as "Kenny" I can blend in and nobody will bother me, but when I put on my uniform and head to work some people see it as a hugh target.

Sometimes we are the people that are knocking on someones door to take them away for a while, or we are seen as the reason for the troubles in their lives, and they want to take that anger out on us...

This hit Home the other day as someone from my cadet class was hit at a traffic stop as the driver tried to get away... PLease Pray for him too.

But when I turned on the news and saw this story it made me sad, and I knew I needed to pass along the need to pray for the families of these brave officers, if you don't pray then please remember them.

May God Bless


Christmas tree lighting

Last night here in Halifax they had the Christmas tree lighting at city hall.

I had got the call for extra duty and I accepted, it was a pretty easy gig because we were there for crowd control and the crowds weren't too big because it was raining.... It was a nice event too bad we didn't have better weather...

Back at the pool

So It's been Nov 6th since I was in the pool, even since then I slacked on all forms of working out.
So tonight before I head back to work tomorrow I wanted to hit the pool.

I went to the Lane swim and the pool was busy, there were 2 water exercise classes going on, so the lanes were cut down to 2 lanes.  So when I jumped in both lanes ahd 3 people in them, alittle crowded but it worked out well, The only thing is that the 2 weeks out of the pool showed, I was having a hard time but I stayed the hour and put in a good number of laps.

It felt good to be back in tho,

Tomorrow at work I'll jump on the bike in the gym and do alittle weights, this should kick start me again...

The Torch and Crosby come to Town.

The Olympic Torch made its way to town the other night and my shift was working.

They were not planning for huge crowds until the released that Crosby would be carring the torch for the second to last leg.

The area I was posted was were Crosby would hand of the Torch, we had everything under control until Crosby made it to my location then everyone would crazy, they had no regard for police orders and didn;t mind if they walked on kids to get where they want to be, after we regained order we made our way down tot he stage for the concert and snowboarding stunts, when your are working during these events it's great becasue you get front row seats!!

On the Triathlon front I have been slacking alittle late, I hope to get to the pool tomorrow and maybe go for a run to jump start things again......

We've been having amazing weather here for late November so I think I'll take the Motorcycle out for a spin.....Later

293 days Left.....


Last night my brother came over to watch Monday Night Football.

Also we went online and booked our tickets online for a flight into Bakersfield, Ca then to fly out of San Fran, Ca.

This year we tried to use our AeroPlan miles, and we tried alittle too late. So this year we decided to book as early as possible. So we booked our tickets this year for Sept 6th 2010 - Sept 13th 2010.

Our plans are to Fly into Bakersfield, Ca make our way to Yosemite Nathional Park, Hike for a couple days in the Park. After that head to San Franscio where we will see Alcatraz prison, go to Six Flags Theme Park, see other sights and then Watch a NFL football game, I'm hopeing the NFL season kicks off on Sept 12th again this year.

I can't wait, it's gonna be a blast.

Hockey Game

Last night I had a good night, I had bought tickets to take my Grandad out to a Hockey Game, he is getting up in years and can't do as much as he used to. The local team is not doing so well this year and tonight they were playing one of the better teams in the league, also their rival.... But after a bad 1st period they pulled it together and won 2-1 a very exciting game, with a few fights thrown in...

Hitting my stride

Hello all,

I hit the Pool yesterday and had a great workout, starting to do more drills to make me efficient.

Recently I have been doing alot of reading about running form, and one area that interested me was barefoot running. Now you won't see me running down the road barefooted but when you see all the benefits you'd think twice. But one thing you can take from it is that when you run barefoot your body will quickly find the proper form, i did a few tests around the house and today when I went for a run I tried to use the stuff I learned.

I had realized that when I was running I was landing on my heel alot, which is terrible form and can lead to injuries, one thing barefoot runners talk about is how running shoes allow you to have bad form like that because all the cushioning allows you to hit the ground wrong and hardly feel it, I today I was bouncing on the balls of my feet with my heels hardly touching and I felt great!!!

I can't remember if I mentioned that I bought a GPS running watch, but I love it. I realized that the 5km that was was running was really 4.5km, So with my new form and the longer distance I was still able to run the 5km in 28:30.00min, I was pumped, It will take alot of work to make this new form become habit but that's what I have the winter for.......

Check out the pic of Barefoot running shoes or Vibram Five fingers shoes ( I know that doesn't make sense) but I'd like to get a pair next summer and try them out, anyone try them before????

Long Nights.....

So the Night shifts were soo Long, I stopped by a magazine shop and picked up a triathlete mag and read through that.

When I left to head home I got a cool email, It was from a father who we helped in returning his child to him, the young boy was left behind at the playground, and he helped entertain him and find his parents... Lesson here: Don't have 5 kids if your always losing your

Today I spent the day helping my friend move all day, it was alittle wet but it went well, they have a great new home.

Well back to the pool tomorrow, maybe a run aswell...
