Sorry for those looking for bunches of Borlase content. I currently use this domain primarily for email.

The "Fitness Blog' navigation link is functional, and takes you to where I'm posting my daily pursuit of getting fit. As part of this fitness effort, I'm currently engaged in Triathlon training with the Saddleback Valley YMCA Triathlon Club. This club is a lot of fun, and has good trainers and people. I recommend it highly.
