Why did you start the blog?

I started the blog on the eve of signing up for my first Ironman – Ironman Canada.  The blog started like pretty much every other endurance sports blog out there.  I wrote about my daily training as well as life in general.  You know, cooking pasta, trips, travel, me.

Along the way I decided to post an e-mail that served as a bit of a ‘review’ of the Garmin FR305, which I had sent to some co-workers.  I didn’t think much of it, and figured it would be just like every other review out on the interwebs.

But in relatively short time, quite a few folks came in and found it useful and started asking questions.  When it came time to pickup a new watch the following year (I’m a gadget guy), I decided to write about that.

From there, whenever I had a sports gadget, I simply wrote about it.  It didn’t take too much longer until companies were offering to send me stuff to check out.
