About Me

Rafael LopezFirst of all, thanks for visiting my site! Its a pleasure to have you here.  Over the past few years I’ve made a point of sharing my love of sport with my friends, family, and of course all the readers who visit my blog.  Now it looks like I’ve actually created a lot of content, so here we are!

A little more about me…

I took up triathlon and running about 6 years ago and have since fallen in love with swimming, biking, and running.  The question I’m most often asked is what got me into the sport.  To be honest, I was always pretty active growing up but wasn’t really a competitive athlete of any sorts.  I played soccer, did the swimming lessons, took martial arts, but that was it for the most part.  It wasn’t until I started riding my bike more often that I really began to make sport a part of my life.

It wasn’t until about 6 years ago when I got tired of being dropped on 5k run’s by my then girlfriend Shirley, (to whom I’m now married), that I took up running as well.  Then one day, after riding my bike home from work, I decided to go for a 5k run.  And that fateful afternoon, my life in multisport began.

Fast forward a few years, and now the sport has taken me to Ironman twice (2011, 2013), the ITU Long Course Worlds in 2012.  I’m also now proud to say I’m partnered with lululemon athletica, Powered by Chocolate Milk, and Ridleys Cycle here in Calgary.  I truly believe that sport, whether it be triathlon, or any other is a great platform to challenge ourselves, enrich lives and create amazing relationships.

So please, take some time, look around, and get in touch either in the comments, over to the right on Twitter, Facebook, or email!

Cheers,

Raf
