As we head into the holiday season I encourage everyone to take time out from those busy training schedules to enjoy some time with family and do a little over indulging. Go into your break setting realistic training expectations so not to add unnecessary stress for missing workouts when you should be relaxing and recouping some energy for the exciting 2023 season.

Shane Mascarin loves the long stuff. His idea of jumping in last minute for a run with a buddy is joining them on their 100km ultra event. He's the most resilient athlete I'e ever had the pleasure of working with. Shane got to test his resiliency recently at the World Ultraman Championships in Hawaii. An ultra man is made up of 6.2 mile (10 K) open ocean swim, a 261.4 mile (421 K) bike ride, and a 52.4 mile (84 K) ultra-marathon run. Shane had a great Day1 but unfortunately crashed on the bike 235km into Day 2. But in true Shane fashion bounced back for Day 3 and completed the full run.
COACH'S TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
I officially completed my Run Everyday in November Challenge. Once we got passed the first week or so of November it actually was not that bad and running was really enjoyable. I appreciated the "push" to run everyday. Out of the whole month I can say there were only 2 days that I really did not want to run and would not have, had it not been for the challenge.
In December there will be a much more important challenge. Our toy drive for Santas Anonomys. We only have 15 days as they all need to be in by December 15th so we can get them to the depot for delivery. Chris from Pedalhead and myself will also be doing some riding and running in order to raise some additional money to buy more toys to add to the pile. Please stop by Pedalhead Bicycleworks to drop off your toy donation or email your pledge into Kevin.firstname.lastname@example.org
