  • Race Recap: SOMA Half Ironman

    This past Sunday was my big fall race – the SOMA half Ironman that I have been training really hard for. I really didn’t want to set any expectations for myself other than simply finishing, although in my head I really wanted to try to finish right around 6 hours. I hadn’t a clue how […]

  • Race Recap: Mountain Man Olympic Triathlon

    Since getting back in the triathlon game, I’ve done 2 sprint triathlons, but I thought it would be a good idea to get another Olympic tri under my belt before the half Ironman in October.

  • Product Review: EnduroPacks

    I was not paid or compensated for this post. I bought EnduroPacks with my own money and all opinions are my own. Let’s talk about recovery – the part of training that a lot of people overlook or perhaps don’t take as seriously as they should. Recovery is just as important as any workout. Without […]

  • An Impulsive Decision about Ironman, Plus a Training Update

    I had my mind 100% made up that my Ironman would be Arizona in November 2015. To me, it wasn’t even a question. I mean, if I was lucky enough to have an Ironman in my own backyard, why would I want to travel somewhere else to do one instead? And then, all of a […]
