Tiffany and I have the bikes cleaned and packed (relatively clean - we were cleaning them in the dark), and this blog entry is a break from getting my clothing packed. Having learned our lesson from IMC, we invited our children to this bike packing party. So, very limited wine, and done well before 1 a.m. Excellent!! :)
When will it sink in... We are going to Kona.

Only days away from one of the most majestic running events and Team Packed Apps members Athena and Laurel are in final preparation mode for the Boston marathon. I know that the team will be watching Bib Numbers 18006 (Laurel) and 20052 (Athena) through out the day and cheering them on. If you are interested in following their journey, click the following link and track them.
Good luck and god speed! We'll be sending you all our positive energy and hoping for a fantastic day on the course. And, of course, we look forward to seeing your race report here as soon as possible. A picture with the hardware would be nice too!

Team Packed Apps Blog has gone live April 2009. Stay tuned as the season has already started with s strong showing at "Around the Bay" 30 km road race. Our Super Power Jet(te), Tiffany Boire-Jette crossed the line in 2:27:00 (2:26:30 - Chip time), Tim "The Wrecker" McNaughton, pumped through in 2:42:12 (2:39:53 Chip time and Personal Best!), and Louise Boudreault with the same Chip time as Tiffany and a time of 2:26:50. Athena Quitevis smiled through the 30 kilometer challenge in 2:52:29 and honourary member, Uncle Jay McNaughton put in a respectable 2:46 and change. Congratulations to all and great work; with the season newly underway, the winter base training will soon be joined with the summer speed sessions.
Additionally, great times were had at the indoor Roller Races where team packed apps rocket sprints, enjoyed the adrenaline and cheered everyone on...
Typical results and strong effort (proven by Tim's read head and strong sprinting legs).
Until next time, take care and see you out on the roads.
