Yup… this is my # for the 2014 Boston Marathon! I will be in wave 4 starting at 11:25 am. What a late start to the day! This year I am raising money for charity so I don’t have the luxury of starting with the qualifiers. I actually started in the [...]

A few weeks ago on vacation in Mexico I broke my big toe. I really don’t have a good story to tell. I kicked a step in the pool area wearing flip-flops. I must have been walking pretty fast to actually break my toe in more than on place. My friend [...]

Boston Marathon Training & Fundraising Update

20th December 2013 | 0 Comments

It has been quite some time since I have done run training without biking and swimming. I have to say it is a lot easier to manager; however, with my history of stress fractures I need to be very careful. It’s all about training smart and recovering smarter.
I am two weeks [...]

17th November 2013 | 0 Comments

I am really excited to be returning to the Boston Marathon in 2014. This go round will be especially meaningful as I am running with Expect Miracles Foundation, a leading advocate in the fight against cancer within the financial services industry. See more here:

Cancer has touched many of our lives. [...]

LONG Overdue Post

The last time I blogged was back in May of 2012 after IM Texas. Not sure why I never wrote a post on IM Florida which I did in November 2012… in summary, it was more of a fun race without my typical training regiment. Lets just say I will NEVER do an [...]

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, [...]

23rd September 2011 | 0 Comments

I know it is been a WHILE since I have posted on my blog. I had some issues with the blog and my old computer, but no worries…all is in good order. I just added some new posts from tri season 2010. I had been posting on Facebook when my blog went [...]

Kona T-2

23rd September 2011 | 0 Comments

I made it to Kona with no travel drama, which was nice given I did head out here quite late this year. The BIG Island hasn’t changed much and the pre Kona scene is just as intense. There are folks walking around in the their race kits, running around in their undergarmets (anual [...]

A whole lot of eating

30th April 2010 | 1 Comment

In the past two days I have eaten more than I have in the past month! Carb loading started yesterday at lunch and contines on today. My past meals went a little something like this:
Lunch: larger turkey sub, sun chips, and about an hour later a PowerBar
Snacks between
Dinner: several pieces of pizza (not [...]

Made it…

to Utah that is. The trip wasn’t that bad from Boston. My first flight out of Boston landed in Denver 30 minutes early. Wow! That has NEVER happened. The plane ride from Denver to Las Vegas was pretty uneventful as well. Again, Southwest managed to arrive early, which is pretty darn good. The first thing [...]
