Good o’ days.

Tomorrow night, I will be sharing about my experience as a cancer survivor and a triathlete to a group of walkers. I was looking back my previous blog posts to remember some of the races last year. I stumble upon another triathlete’s blog. He raced Ironman Lake Placid last year and I was in a picture in his blog. He is doing his second lap as I was doing my first 🙂

As I was looking back, boy, was there some fun times. The winter this year was brutal. I can’t wait the spring to come so I can ride outside again….

To give a quick summary..

On Fri night, there was a snow storm…I ended up running 2 hr in the dreadmill.

On Sat, I had discipleship course and afterwards went to see the kids participate in Bible Quiz Tournament. Woah, the tourney is hardcore. It was intense. They needed a male coach and I figure I can help them out for the next tournament (the first weekend of May). On one hand, I can say that I am not qualify for this role. I don’t do well for kids and I never coach before. On the other, perhaps I can share about my perspective on competition through my triathltons and show the kids there is more to it than just winning.

Today, I spinned for 30 min before church. Went to the Food and Beverage show….hmmm lots of good samples =D.


  • Have a great talk Cliff!

    You are hard core on that treadmill. I did my first 12 miler on one last night and it was rough! We’re getting our fir share of ice/snow here this week too so I feel your pain!

  • That’s really great how you use your experience to relate to others. And nice job encouraging the walkers…since I’m now doing as much walking (and stroller pushing) as running so I consider myself a walker!

  • Hope your talk went well. On working with kids and coaching, I think with just some practice, you’ll do fine. When working with a new group, nearly everyone feels awkward and not good at doing so. It gets easier if you keep doing it.
