I'd feel a tad out of place in that company!

IMHO the main problem with top athlete's blogs is that the majority of them get updated very rarely and intermittently, and when they do update it's often not that interesting. Perfectly understandable of course, but it does not exactly make for riveting reading.

Brilliant.
Makes me feel less guilty now

Not the record holder actually, but the fastest time for a Canadian in 25 years.

I agree about the blog though, it's excellent.
