Alright enough shameless self promotion. Keep watching the blog!
Welcome! My name is Michael Gilday and I am a Short Track Speedskater from Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. I currently train at the National Training Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I've created this blog primarily to let family and friends know about competitions and travel. I also hope to educate a bit about short track and maybe even entertain. Enjoy!

General Mills Aspiring Olympians Update
Alright so first off a big thanks to anyone who reads the blog and has bought a box of specially marked General Mills cereal and entered the code online! Your support much appreciated. Right now we are at $311. But now that the ferry is open the boxes should be flowing into Yellowknife and hopefully lots of people will get out and enter a code! Just think, if each person in Yellowknife bought just one box of cereal and entered the code that would be almost $19000. Most everybody eats cereal and you have all the way until the end of February 2010 to get out and support Canada's Amateur athletes (and hopefully be slightly biased towards yours truly haha!) Also, starting in June, General Mills is running a special bonus. There will be Gold boxes of original Cheerios on the shelves of grocery stores. These special gold boxes will have $5 donation codes on them instead of the usual $1 codes. Of course you still submit the code the same way as before but the bonus is that the code is found on General Mills' best cereal, Original Cheerios and the codes are obviously worth five times as much. If you are wondering to yourself "where can I find info on which boxes to buy, or how to put in a code?", just click on the link that I have put on the right had side of my blog, just below my amazing sponsors logos.
