Pat’s Run

Pat’s Run, the race honoring Pat Tillman, was April 26th in Tempe, Az.  This was the 10th year, and like always, they had a huge turnout!  I woke up about 5 and grabbed some coffee as I headed towards downtown Tempe.  Walking to the start area you are in a sea of the yellow race […]

The Ironman Hangover

Sadly, there has been almost no Tri training this year.  I almost always  have trouble keeping the motivation to training going after an IM race, but I had hoped to do better than this. There have been a few rides and a few runs but nothing that could be considered real training.  As it heats […]

Ironman Arizona Race Report

Psyched on the @Strava App

Not sure how many triathlon people out there have been using the Strava App for biking and running, I love it!  It uses your phone’s GPS to track rides or runs and uploads them to their website.  The website is really cool, it shows your ride on a map and compares your time to others […]

Swimming

I’ve been back in the pool lately!  Until mid-April I hadn’t been in the pool at all this year,  somehow I forget how much I enjoy it.  It’s the main thing I use my Lifetime Fitness membership for.  I have always been in the water, as a young kid I was on our country club […]
