70.3 New Orleans Champion

Apr/21/2016 in General, Race Reviews

Next week I will talk about the week between 70.3 Galveston and 70.3 New Orleans, but this week we talk about winner winner chicken dinner. At a few minutes after 6am an announcement was made that the race start would be delayed because a few of...

70.3 Galveston – 4th

Apr/14/2016 in General, Race Reviews

It is funny how confidence in your abilities ebs and flows as training progresses throughout the season. As of late, I have been training hard but not really confident of what I can do in the race. Which meant heading into Memorial Herman 70.3 Galveston...

70.3 Puerto Rico – 10th

Mar/24/2016 in General, Race Reviews

Did the cannon fire or was it an air horn that started Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico, I will never know. I was dead focused on the swim start. I was nervous, I knew I had fitness but did I have speed? After Ironman Arizona I had...

2nd – 70.3 Austin

Nov/29/2015 in General, Race Reviews

Coming off a blistering fast 70.3 Miami just a few days earlier I knew I was bike fit but I was frustrated with the piss poor run I had in Miami. No matter how well I had been running in training, I really started to...

4th Ironman Arizona

Nov/22/2015 in General, Race Reviews

Next week I will post the 70.3 Austin (Longhorn) race report, because I know that I know a lot more people are looking forward to this one even though it will be a lot less entertaining. I really don’t know where to start with this...

I’ve become a Dinosaur

Aug/23/2015 in Focus Aid, General, Race Reviews

Here I find myself late in my 10th pro season realizing that my racing style has become extinct. I am not talking about my hard nose racing style of balls to the wall start to finish, but my training style. For the past decade I...

70.3 Racine – 3rd

Jul/26/2015 in General, Race Reviews

This was the fourth time in my career that I was pulling the Ironman/half ironman double and every time I have finished better in the second race. I was hoping that this trend would continue. Unlike most of the times in the past I felt...

Kona Race Review

Jan/06/2015 in General, Race Reviews

On August 16 I learned that I had a stress fracture in my sacrum and stress reaction in my femur so I took 4 weeks completely off, which meant skipping 70.3 World Championships so I could be healthy for Ironman World Championships.  When I say...

Kona Bike Preview

Sep/04/2014 in General, Race Reviews

Kona is definitely coming and over the next two weeks I will post my assessment of the current status of long distance triathlon...

5th USAT Supersprint

Aug/14/2014 in General, Race Reviews

When you are in the middle of one of your biggest blocks building into Half and Full Ironman world championships what sounds better than a supersprint? Nothing, speed-play is my favorite part of training and this event would definitely put my into some serious oxygen...
