ABOUT RAF LOPEZ
My name is Raf Lopez, and I’m a Calgary based runner, cyclist, and triathlete. Among the many hats that I wear when I’m not training, I’m a marketing consultant, I work for a wonderful company called lululemon, I love to take photos and hope to be half as rad as Jimmy Chin one day, and I “act” as a total side hustle. Oh and I and read books, lots and lots of books. I’m working on a new, yet to be named political and business blog that you can look forward to this December, and am training for Ironman Canada 2020.
WHY “SHUT UP LEGS”?
Because there’s a bad ass cyclist out there named Jens Voigt who embodied all things grit, determination, and fitness. “Shut up legs” is my mantra when it comes to sport, it means “shut up legs, do what I tell you, and keep going”. Its mind over matter, grit over fatigue, push come to shove.
This site is in no way affiliated with Jens other than he’s an inspiration to me, and I’m in no way affiliated with Trek or Bontrager, other than I love to ride their bikes and wear their gear.
