Rose City Triathlon - 9-11-16. This would be my 50th triathlon and the morning came to me with promise, fresh and alive. The sun peeking over the eastern horizon revealed a few clouds with the dark threat of rain on their bot...
Stampy, my son, Zane loves your videos. He is only 8 so I obviously do not allow him to have his own YouTube channel but I promised him I would use mine to post a question to you.

If you follow along on Facebook, then you already know, that our kitchen reno plans have been going on for the past couple of weeks. I can now finally shout it from the roof tops that as of yesterday Phase 1 is completed! Y...

Twenty years after watching Julie Moss crawl across the finish line, I met my goal of completing a Ironman Triathlon. The best part is how it all came together. I ran it in my hometown surrounded by friends and family.
