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...

2nd – 70.3 Miami

Nov/02/2015 in General

I love racing in Florida. There is one thing that has been consistent in my career. World Record bike splits in Florida: 70.3 World Championships Clearwater (2010), Ironman Florida (2012), Ironman Florida (2013), Rev3 Florida (2013), & now 70.3 Miami (2015). Another staggering number is...

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...

Challenge Roth

Jul/17/2015 in General

The cannon fired with well over 10,000 people lining the banks of the canal and the race was on. I was there, on the line, with great feet to my left but when I hit the gas the body just bogged down and went nowhere....

Flying the Recon Jets

Jun/11/2015 in General

In the 80's Clipless pedals. Aero bars. Steep seat tubes. In the 90's it was the Time Trial helmets. At the turn of the millennium it was GPS and power meters. These inventions were all met with skepticism when they came out but today, they’re...

The Not So Great

Jun/02/2015 in General

We all talk about those great days, but not often do we talk about the bad days. This year I will race in my 150th race as a professional and yes I have a lot of great memories & thankfully those achievements are what...

Those 1st Steps

May/12/2015 in General

We all train for different reasons but we all struggle with the same issue, getting started. We all struggle at some point to find the motivation to get out the door, it is then that you need to know what are your triggers to...
