To train or not to train. Since I have done my Ironman last year, a number of friends ask me if I am training this season. Are you training anything for this year?Are you still training?What are you training for? Being a triathlete, we swim, bike and run…all the time. There is nothing better than hopping on my bike and ride (be it with Darren and/or Aaron where I get my butt handed back to...

What’s my identification?

I am reading John MacArthur’s The Master’s Plan for the Church. Tonight, this passage struck me… “In my life, I don’t know where John MacArthur ends and Jesus Christ beings. (But when I sin, I know I am responsible!) It should be natural for you to see God at work in your life, sensing His power, experiencing His answers to your prayers, following His guidance, and...

Doing it right vs doing it easy

D

I just had a conversation with a brother in Christ and through the Holy Spirit, he convicted me to take an action that is not easy. But it is right. As much as I challenge myself to lay everything out on this blog, this post is tough for me to write. Probably partly there is a lot of internal struggle to get this right. It is much easier to do nothing. Much much easier to sit back and cover it up...

Who I am… “Woah, but Cliff is an Ironman” – a co-worker during a casual talk by the water cooler. It happened earlier the week. At work, I don’t talk about my training and triathlon. In fact, I would rather describe myself as a triathlete. [Triathlete are not as crazy as Ironmans šŸ˜›] I was a bit surprised at my co-worker remembered that I did an Ironman last year...

A weekend. Sat, biked for 2 and 1/2 hours. Kicked my butt. Legs were dying by an hour and a half. Sat night, I was thinking what to do on Sun morning. Before church, I can either swim for an hour or bike for an hour. I selected riding on the saddle simply I need to get back on it more often. So Sun morning, I rode for an hour before church. That felt good. Roads were empty and I just cruising...

Whom then shall I fear….

Matt RedmanYou Never Let Go Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death Your perfect love is casting out fear And even when Iā€™m caught in the middle of the storms of this life I wonā€™t turn back I know You are near I spent two years training for my Ironman. I can still remembered back in 2005 when I had a bike accident and lost two front teeth. I was wondering where my future will...

Proverbs 20 (NLT)

P

6 Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable? Can I become the loyal friend who is reliable? 7 The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them. Can I live the rest of my life to walk only integrity. This is in sacrifice of tangible and material goods? 10 False weights and unequal measures[a]ā€” the Lord detests double standards of...

An ordinary day… – go home after work, grabbed my swim gears and head to the community center– pool close at 7, got there at 5:50. Start doing my regular (500m warm up, 600m drills, 500m paddles, 500m pull cool down)– 10 min before the pool closes, a kid decided to puke in the pool….everyone out (on the positive note, at least I got 90% of my swim done)– hit...

The little things in life…

T

should be keep them as they are, little things. A while back I went to Rhode Island to visit a pastor who used to pastor my church. As I stayed in his place, I noticed that he left his wireless security unchecked. At first I was a bit concerned as how vulnerable his network will be (the geek side of me). Then I realize my pastor’s got bigger things to think about. He is out there to save...

Checking in We had a long weekend up here in Canada. I did not train at all. I know. The season is rolling in and I am sittnig at home. The dry cough has been getting to me. Every morning I would wake up from coughing. I spent the weekend just resting and taking it easy. Snooze a lot. My throat is slowly getting better. From last Sat to today, I don’t cough as much. The cooler weather...
