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...

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...

The #Vitamix Cleanse – Day 2

May 01

Day 2 of my Vitamix Cleanse has come and gone, and it was another successful day!  I was really curious to see how my body was going to respond on Day #2, as I figured it would be the time when it would finally ask, “Ok, what the F- is going on here?”.  But for the most part, I felt great!  And I was (surprisingly)  not hungry at any point during the day. I made a total of five...

Hello Back Problems. Where Have You Been Old Friend?

Hello Back Problems. Where Have You Been Old Friend?

Apr 08

Me and my spine have had quite a tumultuous relationship since I was 18 years old.   This relationship was born during the summer after I graduated high school. Released from the shackles and tyranny of our Catholic school existence, my friends and I went on a trip to Cancun to celebrate our newfound freedom.  One of the craziest weeks of our lives began with a beer at the Cancun Airport,...

On The Outside Looking In and Dreams of Ultrarunning

Mar 24

Its only my first weekend on crutches, and I’m already jumping out of my skin.  I’m not going to lie, this weekend has been tough.  Not only has it been tough because I’m hopping around on two sticks that are chafing the crap out of my armpits and making everything a complete pain in the ass, but its been tough because so many of my former TNT Ironteam teammates are out there...
