Congrats on the triple crown. Pretty sure you were the first American in the sprint.
Best of luck in your prep for the Classic Champs because Ian needs confirmation that he needs a new nemesis.
Til Hamingju! Frábaert hlaupandi :D
Paljon onnea! Hieno kisasta! Kerro niille yhdysvaltalaisille että oot pomo!
Well I have no idea what's happening here but @Gswede nah Kevin won the sprint, props to him!
I've been trying different things for a while to get Ian to train better and more consistently; I've recently resorted to publicly shaming him on his own log, hoping it will piss him off enough to motivate him.
By my research, Will became the 5th person (and 3rd male) to achieve a career triple crown (SML) in the elite categories at US Champs.
There have been two athletes to achieve the weekend sweep. One of those two has done it three times.
If you also care about Classic, there's only one who's done the career SML+C, and that person has done it twice within one calendar year.
If you go even further and include the Relay, Night & Ultralong, then that same person has a career SML+C+RNU, but not a calendar year sweep.
Kinda creeping into a conversation here...but with only good intentions.
Hopefully Ian and I can get after it with some quality training in the near future...
I can imagine it takes some time to get your bearings personally/professionally after a major relocation to a different city (country!)...so I can understand the feeble training regime.
Excuses are easy, (mine is being a Dad to a toddler and an infant coupled with some screwy working/sleeping hours with my business). Personally, things seem to be normalizing now...especially come September.
Anyhow, I think the goal for Ian and I should be a speedwork session, and a tempo run a week. Y'know? Really kick each other's asses. That stuff is so much easier with a training partner/group. Public shaming for bailing!
I don't know of anyone else in Toronto with similar training goals as him and I, so it'd be a sin if we don't harness our energies and become as beastly as possible.
Toronto can be a tough city to become a better orienteer, (although there's some potential sprint-wise)...but there's always potential to become fitter.

Exactly what I'm looking for. You the man Klepperton.
