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...

Sweet & Salty

Jan/21/2014 in Focus Aid, General

People are often asked if they are "Sweet or Salty" referring to their preference in snack food. In this house I am sweet, cookies and brownies, and my wife loves her salty chips, preferably salt and vinegar. Yet this winter we are celebrating them both...

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...
