Competition Ready

Feb/11/2014 in General, Race Reviews

Is it really time to race already? The simple answer is YES. 70.3 Panama will be interesting. Running and cycling in the constant snow this winter has definitely got me fit but there is a large difference between "fit" and "fast." Honestly I...

1st – Rev3 Florida

Nov/14/2013 in General, Race Reviews

The 8 days between Ironman Florida and Rev3 Florida were all about recovering.  I spent the week with my wife visiting my Grandparents enjoying great food and helping out around their house. Friday came way too quick as we drove from the Florida panhandle down...

70.3 Racine Runner Up

Jul/23/2013 in General, Race Reviews

After a week of movies and Normatec's it was time to get back to suffering and Gu's. Having 8 days between a stellar race in Muncie and Racine was a Godsend compared to the normal 7 days, especially considering that Racine is my "home" race,...

70.3 Muncie…Champion

Jul/16/2013 in General, Race Reviews

I am sorry that I spoiled the suspense of the blog with the title but the word champion is very fulfilling and appropriate. After a large block of volume and a short rest week I was quite afraid of what my body would give me after...
