Tri Rock (It happens everyday, today was my day)
I once passed out in a bar in Amsterdam. The details of that are a different story. I was really embarrassed and was lamenting to one of locals that was sitting up in the front. (It was a really small bar/coffee shop so everyone easily saw what I had happen...

Age Group Nationals 
There's been a lot that's happened since the Ironman, and then again, not a lot. I took a good deal of time off after the race and got in some much needed rest and recovery. I think the hardest thing about my Ironman training was the sheer volume of trainin...

Finally a good, long ride!
I finally got a good long ride in.  Did a solid 5 hours in the saddle today.  Had a good tailwind going out and a headwind and a lot of steady uphill coming back.  It was a tough long ride that left me pretty spent at the end.  I learned I need to make a fe...

New job, adjustment to schedule and dealing with mental challenges
I've just recently started a new job.  The job is great.  Great company, work from home, exciting new position.  The timing is tough, though. Right as I'm peaking in my training, I'm having to deal with all of the logistics and details that come with transi...

Ironman Texas 70.3 (Galveston)
Recovering from my race last weekend, I went down to cheer at the Ironman Texas 70.3 in Galveston.  I had a few friends, including both of my coaches, racing and I thought it would be fun to see a triathlon from the other side.  The early morning rain blew ...

Tall Texan 70.3
As a tune up for Ironman Texas, I entered a the Tall Texan 70.3 in Boerne, TX.  My plan called for me to race the Ironman Texas 70.3 in Galveston next weekend.  It had sold out a few hours before I tried to register. Figures.  Instead I found the Tall Texan...
