Ironman Texas

2nd July 2012 | 2 Comments

First, I must say that this was a really great Ironman and I would most definitely recommend it to those athletes that can withstand the heat. The day was hot, but at least the roads on the bike were nice and the run was full of spectators. The swim course was quite interesting [...]

Oceanside 70.3… IM Texas up next!

12th April 2012 | 0 Comments

The last time I raced a half was early last year in Puerto Rico. I was going into this race with a 5 K, half marathon, a sprint tri, and some serious training under my belt. I was really wanting to get out there and race. I have to say I was [...]

Back to the RACES!

6th March 2012 | 0 Comments

The past couple of months of training have been quite productive and I am finally feeling back on track. The last time I wrote, I had recapped my first 5K after one 5 week block of training. Since then, I have completed two additional training blocks of base training, two blocks of [...]

Dinosaur 5K

6th November 2011 | 0 Comments

It seems like ages since my last race! I guess 7 months is ages (in dog years maybe.) Today was my first race back since Boston Marathon… and as a California resident. I ran the Dinosaur 5K in Tustin, CA, along with several elementary school students, parents, local track teams, newbie runners, [...]

Ironman World Championships 2010

23rd September 2011 | 0 Comments

This was my second go round of the IM World Championships, and I must say, this year was a bit tougher. It was a somewhat typical IM race morning with the super early breakfast and a nap before heading down to transiton. The morning scene is pretty intese at IM WC’s. My [...]

Ironman Lake Placid 2010

23rd September 2011 | 0 Comments

As most of you know, my plans to do Lake Placid came after a failed attempt to complete the inaugural IM St. George (Utah). After my first ever DNF, I had my heart set on racing an IM as I wanted to use all the training I had done since post Kona 2009. To sum [...]

Ironman Utah

2nd May 2010 | 1 Comment

Well, this will be the shortest race report to date. I woke up and did the ususal race breakfast 3 and a half hours before the race. My teammates and I then headed down to get bussed to the start. The entire way all I could think about was how cold the water [...]

Oceanside 70.3

5th April 2010 | 0 Comments

This was the first race of the 2010 season for me, and I have to say that I have mixed emotions about the day. Of course I had a blast with the team and fellow triathletes out in Oceanside leading up to the race and post race celebrating our finishes. I went into [...]

Ironman World Championships = TOUGH!

16th October 2009 | 3 Comments

This ironman was by far the toughest race I have done to date. The course itself isn’t bad; it’s the conditions out here that get you… the winds and the heat. You don’t come here thinking different, as everyone always talks about how brutal the winds can be and how hot the lava [...]

Pumpkinman Sprint

23rd September 2009 | 0 Comments

Pumpkinman Triathlon Festival is a great weekend to kick off fall racing, as Kat puts on a good show up in South Berwick, Maine. I made the trip up North last year to do the half ironman, but this year I would only be doing the Sprint. The race actually fell on a [...]
