Image from IM Arizona (photo: Pedro Gomes) It’s no secret that 2015 was a tough year for me and one that I can for the most part probably forget about. While it’s certainly not all about the results, mine were essentially non-existent last year with a number of humbling experiences at the IRONMAN distance (Nice & Arizona) and flat tires (Escape from …

Race Report: IRONMAN 70.3 Cozumel

admin Uncategorized

photo credit: Hernán Ruiz Swim I smashed myself the first few hundred meters to try to get on the right set of feet but ended up just off the back of the lead group of 4 for most of the swim coming out about 25 seconds down. I had a good transition though and headed out on the bike with Leon Griffin …

End of the Year Update

admin Uncategorized

It has been a week now since I finished up my season at the Miami 70.3. I’ve been enjoying some time off since the race and have had the chance to explore some new places down South during a little road trip after Miami with Lauren. It has been refreshing to escape the “Boulder Bubble” for a bit and to …

Back to Back: Boulder Peak & Kansas 5150

admin Uncategorized

After a 3 ½ month hiatus from racing due to my foot injury, I’m happy to be back racing and kicked things off with the Boulder Peak 5150 2 weeks ago and the Kansas 5150 last weekend. Boulder Peak was a fairly mediocre performance for me, and not quite what I was hoping to do at my first race back. …

I know I’ve been a bit MIA on here recently, partially because I haven’t raced in awhile and also because I feel like I read so many other blogs that I don’t want to post just another “update” on here every month. I’ll do my best to throw up some short posts more frequently and hopefully make a few of …

I just got back from Austin a couple days ago after racing the 70.3 down there. My last race before Austin was the Cozumel 70.3, which unfortunately I had to drop out of after crashing early in the bike. I was looking forward to some better luck in Austin! Race morning there was a slight drizzle, but it seemed to …

Rev3 Wisconsin Dells

admin Uncategorized

  Last weekend I headed out to Wisconsin Dells for the Rev3 Olympic Distance triathlon. The Dells is quite the place! I’d heard a little about it, but really had no idea how big of a tourist spot it really is. I never knew a place existed in the US with water parks literally every block. Tourist Haven! If you …

Boulder Peak Report

admin Uncategorized

Last weekend I was finally able to race again for the first time since October of last year. The Boulder Peak is a race that I’ve now done for the past 6 years and was the first olympic distance triathlon that I did back in 2008. It’s one that I have on my schedule every year, and thankfully I was …
