New Goals and Race Schedule For 2013

New Goals and Race Schedule For 2013

Mar 21

With this latest setback with the foot that refuses to cooperate, I’v had to re-evaluate my goals and race plans for 2013. Ironman California 70.3 and Ironman Hawaii 70.3 are on the shelf.   I have to be off my foot for the next 2 months, which definitely eliminates any possibility of doing either of the races.  When I inquired about the WTC’s refund policy as it relates to injury,...

Some House Music For Your Running Pleasure

Some House Music For Your Running Pleasure

Mar 13

When I run, I listen to EDM. I’m a fan of just about every type of music, but when I want to lock in on a run nothing gets me there better than some jacking four on the floor house music.

Escape From Alcatraz Race Primer

Escape From Alcatraz Race Primer

Feb 27

This weekend is the 33rd annual Escape From Alcatraz triathlon in San Francisco, and I’m heading up there to participate for the first time.  I’m fresh off an injury and am not even close to being race-ready, but I’m hyped nonetheless as the prospect of swimming from Alcatraz to San Francisco proper sounds completely daunting, terrifying, and so absolutely exciting!  Tack on...
