#HeatmapMonday – March 16, 2015

Mar 16

Running every day as part of a #runstreak presents a number of challenges, both physical and mental.  One of those challenges, as simple as it sounds, is keeping myself from getting bored out of my mind from running all of the same routes over and over again. Inspired by a conversation I had with fellow training addict Marvin Tabangay (who I come to find out is doing something similar in Santa...

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....

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...

And Just Like That, My Season Is Over

And Just Like That, My Season Is Over

Mar 18

I really (like REALLY) wanted to write about the Wolfpack Hustle #MarathonCrash race today.  This past weekend was absolutely epic, with Sunday’s bike race along the abandoned streets of the LA Marathon course (in the middle of the night) being one of the funnest and most intense events I’ve ever participated in. But unfortunately, this week starts of with some soul crushing news for...
