Ringing in my 40th at Wildflower

Ringing in my 40th at Wildflower

Apr 14

Its been 2 years since Wildflower last made me her bitch.  After being thoroughly dominated by this course several times, you’d think I would have learned my lesson by now.  But she’s a evil seductress, a temptress, The Red Priestess of the triathlon world.  She draws you in with her beauty and then chews you up and spits you out.  And you can’t stop coming back for more....

I’ve tried so hard to not let weeks go by without a blog post, but work finally got the best of me.  Back on the weekend of the 4th of July I got hired to compose for an ABC Family Christmas movie, and I’ve been underground ever since.  The turnaround was tight and I had to write music at a blistering pace throughout the entire month of July.  It was an intense but completely...

Spartan Race Entry Giveaway!

Spartan Race Entry Giveaway!

Jun 18

I have an absolutely amazing giveaway to announce!!! —— The fine people over at Spartan Race contacted me recently and asked if I’d like to host a giveaway on my blog. Coming from a more traditional race background of running/triathlon/cycling, I was absolutely thrilled to hear from them as I’ve had an itch to jump out of the standard racing mold for some time now but...

#MusicMonday – Kaskade Live @ It’s You It’s Me Redux (San Diego)

Jun 10

I’ve got some quality time ahead of me on the bike trainer and elliptical (which will hopefully soon be a treadmill/pavement), which means I need some bump in my earhole to keep me PUMPED. While getting my legs back I’ll be absorbing this house music mix, all things Kaskade, over, and over, and over. Untz Untz Untz. ————– What’s playing in your...

Orthotics – A Catch-22?

Orthotics – A Catch-22?

Jun 10

I’m about a month removed from wearing my boot, and the situation with my right foot injury is a bit of a mixed bag at the moment.  On one hand, the stress fractures seem to have healed.  I’m due for a follow-up appointment to confirm this, but I’m pretty in tune with the aches and pains of this ongoing saga and I think its safe to say that my bones are in good shape. However,...

Onto the Next – Coaching and Levi’s Gran Fondo

May 17

Things are looking up as we storm past my 39th birthday, the last birthday before I make the jump into an age group that I’m not quite ready to admit I’m a part of.  This past year has been one of ups and downs physically, with some spectacular things happening at the 70.3 and 140.6 distances that also translated into some pretty negative physical repercussions that I’m still...

The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 3

The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 3

May 02

Day 3 of my Vitamix Cleanse has come and gone and I successfully made it thru 3 days of juice fasting.  I almost cracked last night……I went to my Vintage 1 class last night at UCLA (I’m getting my Wine Education and Management Certificate), and like we do every week we tasted 6 different wines.  Despite using spit cups, I’d be a liar if I said that there’s...
