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....

Escape From Alcatraz 2013 – Race Report

I ‘Escaped’ from Alcatraz!   As I found out last weekend, this meant a whole lot more than just swimming across San Francisco Bay. In fact, that was just the beginning.  I picked a mofo of a challenge for my first race of 2013, and it was a fantastic weekend all the way across the board.
