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...

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...

My New Toy

Apr/16/2015 in General

In the off-season, every athlete adds tools to their arsenal trying to take their training to the next level. Yoga, Pilates, Insanity, P90X are just some examples of what I have tried in the past. This off-season, I took it to a whole new level...

Sticking with Speed

Apr/02/2015 in General

In 2012 I teamed up with this innovative hydration company that has changed the way the sport designs hydration.  Traditionally companies built bottles & hydration systems that would create the least amount of drag, drag is bad so their ideas were valid.  Yet the guys...
