Busy days lately for the RTC crew (isn't that how everyone starts a blog post after they haven't written for a while?), with most of our group balancing exams and training. A few quick notices, reminders, and kudos:

A reminder of the upcoming draft certification clinic, Sunday May 2nd, at UofGuelph. The clinic being hosted by coach Lorri Zagar on April 18th is sold out.

Johnny Rasmussen has a 2XU E:0 Medium tall wetsuit for sale. Brand new, doesn't fit. E-mail me if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with JR.

A number of Canada's top triathletes are in Monterrey Mexico right now. The juniors are racing later today, looking to punch their ticket to the Youth Olympic Games later this year in Singapore. On Sunday, the elites take to the start line for the Monterrey World Cup. Everyone looks ready to put in a great race. Coach Gary Pallet is leading the team in Moneterrey, so check the MNTC blog for updates.

Last weekend, National Team Members Simon Whitfield, Kyle Jones and Kathy Tremblay raced the first leg of the World Championships Series in Sydney. Simon kicked off his season in style, with a 5th place finish, and while Kyle and Kathy didn't end up where they wanted to be, both can take lots of positives away from the race. I'm sure most of you followed it live online, but if not, you can see the video highlights here for the mens race and here for the womens race.

If you found the ITU online coverage of the Sydney races to be a bit choppy (I did), and you live in Canada, you can enjoy the same coverage from CBC, minus the choppy-ness. Kyle Jones has the details posted on his blog. Tell your friends.

Alexander found this great quote in an interview on letsrun.com with Track Coach Bill Aris:

"Well, another one of our phrases that you've correctly tapped into - 'the process is the goal' - we live by that. I've got that up on our wall in our office and every one of our kids can recite that and they know exactly what it means. ... We focus on not the achievement of a certain elusive goal. We focus on trying to perfect what we do every day - that's our goal. The process is the goal. The daily grind is the goal, if you will."

Next week's quiz question: What is a "Stotan"?

Have a great weekend. Ready, Set, Go Canada!
