Disappointment
I probably shouldn't write about this, since it's kinda personal, but it’s
been on my mind.     I have done 5 races
since I started down this road.   Only 2
have I had anyone there to cheer me on.   I know Jen would be there with the girls if she could, but...

2015 Des Moines Tri race report
Swim Time: 37.06 The water temp was 82 degrees.   Which made it a non-wetsuit legal swim.   Didn’t mean much to me since I don’t own a
wetsuit.   After a 10 minute delay the Pro’s
took off.   Then we all lined up for a
wave start.   I was in the water by

Training plan
So I have been actively training for about three weeks now.  Jen has been on me to come up with some kind of plan.  She is the type of person that when she develops a goal she wants some kind of structure to obtain it.  Me, not so much. I have done a little...

RAGBRAI 2014
So by now everyone should have heard about the route announcement.  It's a Northern route this year.  3rd shortest and 2nd flattest.  The last few years have been pretty easy.  Not sure if it's because the heat has been so horrible the last few years or if ...

Cycle Mania
So today was the Cycle Mania class at the gym.  It's held once a year and is a 2 hour long spin class.  4 instructors take a 30 minute turn so you end of with a good mix of workouts. It's a lot of fun and I try to make it every year.  They get a few local b...
